Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.
Wow! The only way to truly grasp the immensity of the Grand Canyon is to be there. North Rim is higher than the South Rim and much less crowded. You can take a seat on the terrace of the lodge and just breathe it in....More

Hi, There are a few nice places on the way to the North Rim, Kanab being one but if you have a road atlas there are other little spots on the way that have nice or quaint motels, etc. You might look at the atlas and then pull up the smaller towns and see what they offer.
