The scenery at the Grand Canyon South Rim is spectacular - definitely, a view that should be on one's 'bucket list'. Have always wanted to visit and have finally done so! So glad!!!

I usually don't have a loss of words but I am now! There are really no words to describe the beauty we have just seen . The only problem I have is with the rudeness of the tourist from other countries!

Grand Canyon South Rim has some of the most amazing views. Be sure to go to the Desert View, which has a tower and views of the Colorado River and Hopi Point for sunsets

We spent 6 days on the south side, although we were given a very nice map at our hotel, we could have gotten additional information here. This is a rather large complex with tons of parking. Gift shops, large bathroom area, very wide walkways to...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
