The views from all around the Rim of the canyon were outstanding and unlike anything that I have seen in my life. The Canyon has a sense of calmness when you are there. It is out of this world magnificent.

We loved our short but fun filled trip to the south rim. We have an 11 and 9 year old and they were troopers hiking the Kabib trail and more. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Look, don’t get me wrong, the views were ok. However, I just find it unacceptable that in this day and age wifi was non-existent. I had lots of good photos but was unable to Snapchat them!

This is the Grand Canyon. Take the 20 mile drive and head to the Desert Tower. No families. No crowds.

Love the views! Our family enjoyed our visit and tour by Canyon Ministries! Lots of places to be amazed and places to eat since you will likely spend a whole day there.

I would avoid staying inside the west rim and other options are not close. The area is designed for a day trip from LV in general.
