I visited Grand Canyon National Park South Rim in February 2019. After entering the park, I headed straight to Mather Point as the Ranger recommended this as my first stop. There are several parking lots, the Visitor Center, a book / souvenir store, a café....More
First view of the canyon for many (most?) people coming to the south rim from Phoenix. Only downner is that this is probably the best view from anywhere along the canyon. It just doesn't get any better. Great place to watch the sun rise, the...More
We walked out to Mather point in the middle of a February blizzard and that was my favorite time there. No one was there but us and though visibility was limited, the pictures are amazing due to no crowds. We went back out on our...More
Mather point juts out into he Grand Canyon allowing almost 360 degree views. It is a fabulous place to see the canyon. I imagine that it super crowded during the summer, but when we went it was fairly easy to get out there and take...More
The Grand Canyon National Park was created in 1919. We visited and watched the sun rise at Mather Point. The view is, of course, extraordinary at Mather Point and along the South Rim Trail. The weather, being January, was very cold, with snow on the...More

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.
