Mather Point is ( in The Author's Humble Opinion ) best seen at Sunrise. The colours at this time of day are spectacular and the added sense of just how insignificant we are compared to this makes this worth getting up at O DARK THIRTY....More
When I researched the Grand Canyon, it was totally confusing as to WHAT IS THE BEST POINT!! Honestly, they are all good but, if I had to suggest the best points to see they would be:
Mather, Yavapai, Gandeur, Hopi, Mohave and Pima. if you...More
This place is amazing with amazing views of the canyon you won’t be disappointed, a plus on the day we were there it wasn’t so busy but very hot, you will get some amazing pictures here, on a big plus I got engaged here, perfect
Mather Point is one of the closed view point from the Visitor's centre. We had a nice view of the Canyon overlooking the Colorado river below. The depth appeared to be 3000ft or more. There were many nice trails for walking. We came by Conducted...More
There are so many spots to stop and look at the canyon. This had to be one of the top spots. It is no wonder it is so close to the shuttle hub. But with it being so close to the shuttle hub you better...More

Suzi, that all depends on what you want out of your experience. My parents would drive by the sign to say they had been to a place but never truly experienced it, and there are a small handful of vistas to help you see the breadth of the Grand Canyon to do just that.
I would recommend that you leave early in the day and visit as many areas as you can and take in each of the pulloffs on the way since you live in Florida and may not experience it again. fyi the Skywalk is rather pricy, and there are short and long trails to hike on, so come prepared to your liking. There are several attractions with visitor centers and dining as well.
I came from the North and. around from the East side so there may be other options from the Vegas Side. Do bring plenty of water and batteries for your camera as well. hope this helps.

You have a couple of options. If you are just driving through East to West, it would be best to come in through Cameron (off Hwy 89) there are several view points (and I consider some of these to be some of the best). When you get to the visitor center, there are shuttles that will take you to view points along the rim (free). If you are going West to East, come in from the south at Williams off Interstate 40 and go directly to the Visitor's center and take the shuttles from there.
