  • I think all the rangers tell everyone this is a good spot for a sunset and it is, but just know you won’t be there alone. The bus service after sunset is convenient however. And the views are very pre...  more »
  • Not a bad spot for a sunset. Lots of space to spread out. Get here early and the shuttle runs after sundown as well!  more »
  • One of the best vantage points for sun set/rise. Fabulous colors and color changes. Good vantage point to view parts of the bright Angel trail which goes all the way from the rim to the river.  more »

  • Awesome viewing area with spectacular views in every direction. We visited in late March and the temperature was perfect. We enjoyed mid 60’s with almost cloudless skies. Grateful to not be subjected to the summer inferno. Great tour guides around with plenty of information to share about the Park and the sights. No shortage of history in this park. Amazing to see millions and millions of years of geological progression all in one spot.
  • If you ask anyone they'll tell you this is the best spot to see the sunset and they are right! It was probably one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen in my life! I would recommend getting there 20 mins before sunset so you can get a good seat. Remember you can only get thete via park shuttle, which is also take you back (there will be a long line up after sunset). Also it does get very windy / chilly so bundle up!
  • Fantasitc day trip! We chose to do the scenic south rim tour following the bus line. Breathtaking views and wonderful photo opps. Restrooms a snack and soiveneir shop help complete the experience. Looking forward to returning when we have more time to hike down into the canyon.
  • A don't miss stop. Handcrafted art, jewelry, fiber arts by Native American Artists. I loved the art pieces and dream catchers. Great place to explore and purchase beautiful gifts for family and friends.
  • What could be better than the Grand Canyon? Answer: The first visit with your own kids to the Canyon.
