We arrived too late to go into the Watchtower. However the sunset was amazing. I was shocked that so many sat close enough to the edge to fall over the side, so that was disturbing. However, the view of the canyon and watching the sun...More
After a 3 mile (5 kilometre) mile drive from the Tusayan Ruins Museum we ended up at Desert View.
We were there on the Eastern weekend – Saturday and the attraction was busy but there was still a lot of room in the huge parking...More

Drove through Joshua tree grove. And of course Hoover Dam. By driving to Grand Canyon you free yourself and opening choices. I hope, this will help.
