Not as busy as other South Rim locations and the views are stunning. All of the pull off areas are safe and some have rest rooms. The drive ends at the Watchtower, designed by Mary Colter.

An awesome view showcasing the wonderful colors of the Grand Canyon. Even the kids enjoyed the view while they did their ranger project searching for animals and tracks along the way.

The Lipan Point is probably one of the most tucked away places, which is not tourist heavy (huge plus) - and the view from there are just spectacular. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Utah (which we were fortunate to...More
