Beautiful short walk down to the Point. I urge patience-it's very crowded-lots of tour buses even early in the day.

We have enjoyed views from the various viewpoints around the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and the various falls, but this one is always our favorite. The only negative is how busy it is.

We had great sunny weather and it was lovely to see the canyon and the falls. Can't imagine what the summer crowds are like!

Make sure to stop here. You’ll have some great scenic vistas. It’s not far off the main road. We took a picnic and enjoyed it at this spot.

Artists Point located on the South Rim, is one of the busiest parts of the park. It is probably the most visited of the Yellowstone Grand Canyon overlooks. And rightly so, the views from here are absolutely incredible. Definitely a primo selfie spot! But, expect...More
