This time of year (Oct/Nov) is the time to go see the Grand Canyon , not very busy and less crowded. The sites are amazing and you have to see it, pictures only tell half the story.

This rim is good place to see how big and wide canyon is... We had this luck to see a rainbow there, sun and rain in one time

I went to both the west and south rims. The south rim has the best amenities and even has hotels where you can stay. Very nice shops. Best place for families especially with small kids.

There were shuttle busses running while we were there. Did not use any of them, so no details to share.
