The view from the south rim is spectacular. Hard to believe such a place exists. Plenty of views that are different yet the same from the rim trail and lookout points along the trail. Words can’t describe. Pictures don’t do it justice either.

Grand Canyon remains a wonder of nature. Go to see the Mohave lookout point. It is very nice. Also the Hopi!

This is an excellent park that is easy to navigate. The visitor’s center was a great place to start and the movie was full of information. The free shuttle buses made it easy to get around and of course the canyon is breathtaking. We hiked...More

We enjoyed a tour in the pink bus to see the South Rim. It was a nice time and the guide was great. You have to see it for yourself.

Could use more guidance on how to see all the different viewpoints in same day; or more to do to keep you there multiple days.

We visited Vegas and took a day trip to the Grand Canyon South Rim, it is quite doable if you leave around 6am. The Grand Canyon is truly a sight to behold, the landscape and views are simply breathtaking, a really amazing experience for anyone.

We just returned from our visit and it was windy and chilly, but warmed up after we left. I would say Christmas time would be on the brisk side.
Hello! I am trying to plan a trip to GC with my family in April. We have a 12 night trip planned but have to fly into Salt Lake City as that’s the only flight we can afford! We are aiming to hike to Phantom Ranch and stay down at the Ranch on night 9 of our trip, to tie in with a reservation we have there. We were also hoping to stay 3 other nights at the south rim, 2 nights before our hike and 1 night after. Do you have any suggestions for the rest of our trip? We really need to stay at SLC on night 1 and 12, which makes the route back from GCSR to SLC a little arduous. I’m not sure this trip is viable and I’m starting to contemplate changing to June and hiking to Phantom in June instead .... possibly not the smartest idea given the combination of heat and two pre-teen children, but perhaps viable so long as we start the hike down and hike out before sunrise?! Any tips helpful! Thank you
