If you are on a road trip like us, don't missout the Grand Canyon visit. We spend a whole day in the park and it was one of the best stops on our tour so far.

I really enjoyed the south rim because there was many parking lots to pull over in and get a different view. You could drive right up to the parking lot and look over at anyone of the turnouts. You don't have to do a hike...More

Good spot to see the Canyon. Ample parking and toilets nearby and well sign posted. Having already seen the canyon by helicopter the view was a little disappointing, but that is not the fault of this attraction. Would recommend it.

This was simply amazing and the views are spectacular. We had to travel from Las Vegas to see this and we enjoyed every moment. The tour guide is very helpful and knowledgeable. This is a must. You will not be sorry.

Neither words nor pictures can do the Grand Canyon justice. It is a must see. Breathtaking every time. Between the scenic views, wildlife, and general experience, it is truly a unique and worthwhile trip!

If you're in vegas then the south rim is closest. Drive time is 5 hours give or take. North rim is easier to go to from Utah so I wouldn't go there. The advantage to the north is less crowded. If you do the plane 3 hours at... More
