Amazing place

It's been summed up already but for what it's worth, it's an absolute must see and one of the most incredible places I've ever been to in my life.

Most viewpoints were closed to private vehicles. We were forced to take the shuttle buses. But they were not frequent enough. We wasted a lot of time waiting for shuttle buses. Sometimes we couldn't get onto it because it was too crowded. They should have arranged at least 50% more shuttle buses. The views were spectacular, but the service was... More

This trip was my first trip to the Grand Canyon. We were scheduled to arrive on 2/27, but there was a winter storm. We ended up staying in a Days Inn in Flagstaff on night one because we couldn't drive through the winter storm. Sixteen inches of snow fell on 2/27, and the interstate wasn't completely plowed so we had... More

The west rim was beautiful (but not a great road to get there when we went years ago) and it's closer to Las Vegas, but it's worth the extra drive to get to the South Rim. It was breathtakingly beautiful! There are so many viewing areas - with guard rails. We probably walked 3/4 of a mile around to the... More

Seeing the Grand Canyon is truly spectacular, words will not do it justice. The view is breathtaking. If you are within travelling distance, it is a must see!

This was our first view of the canyon and it was really other-worldly. We found lots of places to slow down and just stand and take it in.

There is nothing I can add that has not been said yet - the Grand Canyon is just one of those places that you have to have seen. If you haven't added it to your to-do list yet, please do. It's a bit of a drive, and out of the way for just about any other nearby must-see, but like... More

The majestic views you see from professional photographers often come from the South Rim. The north rim is closed in the winter so we were on target for this short visit. If you start at the east entrance coming from Flagstaff and if you are in a hurry, you'll want to go to Route 64. There are plenty of overlooks... More

We took the advice of other travelers and arrived at the park at 9:00 am. We're glad we did! Had no problem finding parking and were able to hike from Bright Angel to Hermit's Rest without a lot of company on the trail.

Breathtaking and unbelievable views. Pictures can not substitute the real view. We hiked down into the canyon and had a great time. Lot of history to see and a lot to do. Great picnic areas. Not much wildlife we seen at this time of year, but we had a great time. Will be back to visit more and do more.... More
