It is an experience beyond words. You must go and see this! It was amazing to me that English speakers were in a distinct minority.

This is a great national park, tons of view points to see the canyon, the ranger station has a lot of good information. We preferred the north rim but the south rim is easier to get to

If you are on a road trip like us, don't missout the Grand Canyon visit. We spend a whole day in the park and it was one of the best stops on our tour so far.

OMG...having been to the West Rim twice and being amazed by the views there I didn't think this could be topped, well I was wrong. If you have a chance to get to the South Rim you HAVE to go there. The $30 entry fee...More

I really enjoyed the south rim because there was many parking lots to pull over in and get a different view. You could drive right up to the parking lot and look over at anyone of the turnouts. You don't have to do a hike...More

If you're in vegas then the south rim is closest. Drive time is 5 hours give or take. North rim is easier to go to from Utah so I wouldn't go there. The advantage to the north is less crowded. If you do the plane 3 hours at... More
