  • Another beautiful view, the Grandview point will definitely leave you speechless. Boundless landscapes as far as the eye really amazing. Attention only to the flow backed by car, especially in August.

  • Beautiful views and an epic hike down into the canyon. Make sure you are prepared for a VERY rigorous hike if you plan to go all the way out onto the Mesa. The hike is deceptively easy going out and is quite challenging coming back. I am a pretty experienced casual East Coast hiker and this was basically the hardest thing I have ever done.
  • Beautiful and scenic ..beyond words. The multiple rock layers. The erosion brought about by rivers over the ages, gives it a different look...The best feature above all is how it plays with sunlight and shadows..
  • A much quieter stop a bit further down the road. Of course the view is great
  • Beautiful panoramic view of the grand canyon. Put this on your bucket list!
  • If you hike down, be aware that the way you go down you have to go up in the end as well. I was done after the horseshoe Mesa trail. DON'T FORGET ENOUGH WATER!!!

Where to stay in Grand Canyon National Park

You'll find plenty of options if you want to stay inside Grand Canyon National Park. Most campgrounds and lodges sit around the South Rim area, and they tend to fill up quickly for summer visits, so book as far in advance as possible. The price range for lodge accommodations varies greatly, so there's something for nearly every budget. The less-visited North Rim features one lodge. For those who hike to the bottom of the canyon, dormitories and cabins are available at Phantom Ranch. If you can't secure a place in the park or find something there to your liking, the small village near the south entrance offers inns and economy motels. You’ll have the convenience of nearby restaurants if you stay there.
