No matter how much people try to tell you how deep the canyon is, you can't really appreciate it until you are here. It is really scary on a windy day when you stand near the edge - especially where there are no barriers in...More

Even if you can't hike in the Grand Canyon, the South Rim has many breathtaking sights and interesting geological and archeological displays. There's a shuttle bus to take you from place to place too!

Awesome experience. $30 to park car, but worth it! I could stand there staring for days. I hiked the man made walkway a good ways down. I am not in shape, but it was so worth it. Bring snacks and water, flashlight, good shoes, camera...More

Words and pictures can not describe the Grand Canyon. So beautiful. It was crowded but not as bad as I thought it would be. Perfect weather in late May. We choose to drive into the park and explore after doing a Pink Jeep tour (reviewed...More

Tusayan is the closest
Hi we are staying in Tusayan at best western and will go into park on the purple shuttle but on our second day we intend to get up early and drive into park to do the desert view road and continue out of park to flagstaff via Cameron, how does that work with the permit/entrance fee? Do we buy the $30 car pass will this allow us to both (2 adults) use the purple shuttle bus the day before? I know it's valid 7 days.

The car pass allows you to use the shuttle, just show your pass receipt to the shuttle driver. You can buy the car pass / entrance ticket at the IMAX theater near the Best Western hotel.
