The only complaint I have about this attraction is that there's too much walking! But that certainly not the fault of the Park Services. LOL!

Great site, lots of parking and wonderful facilities. The staff was overly friendly and you can tell they love their jobs. Large parking areas, so easy to park and hop on the busses that tour the different viewpoints around the canyon.

The film is worth a look before setting off to see the Canyon as it gives the history of the canyon. Also there are a few other exhibits to look at in the centre, plus times of different activities taking place each day.

The Info centre at Grand Canyon is great - lots of information presented in interesting ways and great rangers who can tell you everything you need to know about the Canyon itself, the activities you can do and how to get around.
