We drove a few hours north from Phoenix and it was well worth the visit. The view was great. Lots of trails that provided different lookouts. Lots of parking and there is even a bus shuttle taking you from vantage point to vantage point. This...More

I have seen pictures of the Grand Canyon but you can't get the true felling unless you go there. The views were beautiful. The size of the canyon is unbelievable.

Unbelievable. Definitely a must see. Worth the 4.5 hour drive from Vegas each way in a single day if you do not have Time to spend one night. Perfect day for our 25th anniversary.

Very enjoyable overnight stay at Bright Angel Lodge. 5th visit to south rim over the last 35 years. Buses in the park are convenient and much better than searching for parking at every overlook.

I came to Vegas for work and stayed another day to do the grand canyon tour. I believe I went with a company called GC tours which was awesome. Less than 90 dollars and stopped off at Hoover dam route 66 and grand canyon. I...More

I really enjoyed coming to the GC visitors area for the first time since I was 10 years old. The short walk to the rim from the parking area was well worth the time. Later in the afternoon, the canyon was filled with a multitude...More

I think the best short hike you could do would be South Kaibab down to Ooh-Aah Point. Take the orange shuttle from the main visitor center to get to it. Might take an hour and a half of your time. After that, I would do... More
