Beautiful and incomprehensible views. Must be seen to believe. Get there early for best and least crowded pics.

I found the views at sunset stunning and very profound. I was lol coy to capture sunset with clouds and the winter wind for some great shots. Enjoy the views and the walks.

A gorgeous place that words fail to fully describe. Just go and be sure to bring your camera. Would have liked to have more time to spend there.

As you pull into the park this is the first lookout area that you can tour after parking your vehicle. A short walk allows you to see the breathtaking views that made this a bucket list trip for you in the first place.

Mather Point is a great starting point for your Rim walk. The view is spectacular. It helps you get a sense of the grandeur of the Canyon. On a clear day you can see a lot.

This is marked as "very popular." It is that, and the view is lovely, but it is so crowded. Go a little further along (either east or west) to get wonderful views without the crowds.

Another vantage point of Grand Canyon with breaktaking views. Plenty of hiking trails. Dress appropiately since temperatures rapidly drop when sun starts to set. Try to be there for sunset to appreciate the pinks, lavenders, oranges and red reflected on the sky and canyon.

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

You can tour on your own. But the hotel reception desk may be able to help with a local company
