This is a very informative place and a great place to start your Grand Canyon experience. Try to get there early as it can get very busy in peak season. Recommend you watch the short free video about the canyon so you can really appreciate the views.

The highlight of the area is the overlook of the Grand Canyon. This is a well run, well constructed complex with shuttle buses to other points of interest along the south rim. This is the place to start your visit.
