There are so many spots to stop and look at the canyon. This had to be one of the top spots. It is no wonder it is so close to the shuttle hub. But with it being so close to the shuttle hub you better...More
You can see magnificent views of one-quarter of the entire Canyon from this Point with vivid colors and the different layers of geological strata formed through millions of years, the exposed layers of colorful rocks date back to Precambrian times. The Colorado River is 5,000...More
There are many vista points at the South Rim but this one stands out to me with lots of “wow” factor! We have been there on previous visits and sought it out again when we went to the Main Visitor Center on the shuttle last...More
Mather Point offers a great view of the Grand Canyon and its vast viewing of the layers of rock and the depths of the canyon. You can go to the rail and take pictures. There were people climbing over the rail and climbing on the...More
It was 111 degrees when we visited. The scenery as you can imagine was breathtaking. Please keep to the walking areas designated though. Some people climbed over railings to stand on the edge which looked very dangerous as edge very crumbly.

Suzi, that all depends on what you want out of your experience. My parents would drive by the sign to say they had been to a place but never truly experienced it, and there are a small handful of vistas to help you see the breadth of the Grand Canyon to do just that.
I would recommend that you leave early in the day and visit as many areas as you can and take in each of the pulloffs on the way since you live in Florida and may not experience it again. fyi the Skywalk is rather pricy, and there are short and long trails to hike on, so come prepared to your liking. There are several attractions with visitor centers and dining as well.
I came from the North and. around from the East side so there may be other options from the Vegas Side. Do bring plenty of water and batteries for your camera as well. hope this helps.

You have a couple of options. If you are just driving through East to West, it would be best to come in through Cameron (off Hwy 89) there are several view points (and I consider some of these to be some of the best). When you get to the visitor center, there are shuttles that will take you to view points along the rim (free). If you are going West to East, come in from the south at Williams off Interstate 40 and go directly to the Visitor's center and take the shuttles from there.
