There are several view points and the view is AMAZING!! But you can not grasp how huge the canyon is from here, so I really recommend you do some hiking and you’ll enjoy a view with no other people around.

First time at the South Rim. Crowded, but a beautiful day weather wise. North Rim is definitely more quiet. Beautiful views of course. Gift shop, information center, clean restroom. Dogs allowed on leash.

Yes, that is a perfect amount of time to see about all the highlights. Anywhere in the park is good lodging. It's just up to variables like how much you want to pay, how big your party is, what amenities you need, how close... More

I think the best short hike you could do would be South Kaibab down to Ooh-Aah Point. Take the orange shuttle from the main visitor center to get to it. Might take an hour and a half of your time. After that, I would do... More
