An excellent view of the canyon if you don't mind squeezing in with hundreds of others wanting to share the view. There really isn't a bad viewing location at the canyon... The trail on the south rim offers many stopping points for photo ops and awe inspiring moments.

You get a beautiful view of the canyon from Mather point. Given its proximity to the visitor center it almost always has people at it.

Mather Point is the place most people see for the first time the breathe and scope of the Grand Canyon. This was my second trip here with my wife. This time we traveled with friends. My friend Al had questioned why we were going to spend three nights at the canyon. I wish you could have seen his face when... More

All the views of the Grand Canyon are just unbelievable to see. It is an experience to be had and treasured. All the vista points of the South Rim are something to be seen by everyone at least once in your life. This is our second time here and I am still awed by the sights. Just breathtaking.

This is one of the best spots to view the spectacle of the Grand Canyon. Lots of photo ops abound. There's even a boulder you can climb on (safely) that allows someone the chance to take a shot of you embracing the canyon without careening off the edge! Early morning and late afternoon will yield the best pictures.
