My wife, daughter, and I were on a bus tour and this was one of the spots we visited. It was a beautiful place to see the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed seeing it.

Visited here while touring the Grand Canyon. They have reconfigured traffic and parking making this a very visitor friendly stop

Great place to get your first glimpse of the amazing grand canyon As this is the closest place to the visitor center to see the Canyon it gets pretty crowded. Great place to start your tour of the grand Canyon Rim trail.

This is pretty much the first thing to see when visiting the grand canyon national park. You can view sunrise from here. It's pretty good but a bit crowded during sunrise and sunset times. Obviously. This point gives you a great (read AMAZINGLY GREAT) view...More

Enjoyed spending an evening and morning at Mather Point taking photos and just gazing upon the magnificent vista. A busy spot near to the parking lots around the Visitor Center but still quite good and enjoyable.

Mather Point is the very first full view of the Grand Canyon that you get when you first walk out the rim from the Visitor Centre. While it is an incredible view, it is also very crowded because everyone who enters the site stops there...More

The Grand canyon is grand as the name. I was awestruck. Looking into the wonders of nature. Mather point is the most photographed place and is a must visit. It has the best view from South rim.

It was a bit of a hike from the car parking area, but worth the walk. Awe inspiring view. We came back later in the day and the look was totally different with the setting sun lighting the rock faces.

The view of the canyon is absolutely beautiful, but it’s almost ruined by the crowds of tourists vying for the best “Insta-worthy” spot. I can only imaging what the peak season (not February) is like. I watched one young lady climb a rock on the...More

This very accessible point has wonderful views across the canyon and down into the depth of it. It is well worth the short walk from the main Visitor's Center.

Suzi, that all depends on what you want out of your experience. My parents would drive by the sign to say they had been to a place but never truly experienced it, and there are a small handful of vistas to help you see the... More

You have a couple of options. If you are just driving through East to West, it would be best to come in through Cameron (off Hwy 89) there are several view points (and I consider some of these to be some of the best). When... More
