The south rim has a lot of people but it's wonderful to see the GC and the rim trail along with the visitor center makes a wonderful visit.

Views are beautiful into the Grand Canyon with the light capturing the imagination as it accentuates rock formations while the sun slowly sets. Colors in the canyon are illuminated with the different layers of earth exposed. Lots of elk roamed in the treed areas not...More

Words can’t describe what it’s like when you first see The Grand Canyon. The views are amazing and it should be on everyone’s must see list. We had an hour of rain, but waited it out and then nice weather again. Simply awesome experience.

First time going to the Grand Canyon. It was extraordinary! I'm afraid of heights but really enjoyed the grandness of this amazing site. The kids also loved the views. We took lots of pictures! I would recommend seeing this historical site.
