The south rim of the Grand Canyon is the most easily accessible. The views from the park are amazing and varied. As the light changes during the day the vistas change with them.

I mean honestly, how can you give the Grand Canyon a poor review? It’s the Grand Canyon! Absolutely beautiful views anywhere you look. The south rim trail is worth hiking and take advantage of view points and lookouts. Gift shops and museums sprinkled around the...More

Absolutely stunning! Unbelievable views- even more beautiful than i thought it would be. I would highly recommend visiting in February as the crowds were small and the weather was great.

What a bunch of views! Spectacular! And full of visitors. FREE! If you stay at the lodge, it's a short shuttle ride..........a few minutes by car. Try not to fall over the edge to your doom!

The canyon rim is at 7000 feet so that is a great moderator to the temperatures you see reported for Phoenix at 1100 feet. While it will still be warm it will be about 20 degrees cooler than Phoenix.
