Lookout Studio, Grand Canyon National Park

(4.7/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
Built on a rock ledge suspended over the Grand Canyon's south rim, Lookout Studio offers some of the best vantage points of the famous landmark. Listed on the National Register of Historic places, the 1914 studio is one of seven buildings in the canyon designed by famed architect Mary Colter, who strove to blend the structure with its natural surroundings using local stone and wood. Explore the building's historic interior, featuring various informative exhibits and a film, and then use the coin-operated telescopes on the outdoor terraces for up-close inspection of the natural spectacle around you. A paved trail nearby makes a great spot to watch for the California condor--North America's largest land bird and a rarity in the skies. The birds use the thermal updrafts of air to cruise along the cliffs. If you're looking for souvenirs, check out the on-site gift shop. For Lookout Studio and beyond, use our Grand Canyon National Park tour planner to get the most from your Grand Canyon National Park vacation.

  • The views from the back of the shop are awesome, done of the best at the south rim. The shop itself also has some cool items and is pretty affordable.
  • Pretty neat little miniature castle type place that overlooked the canyon with some pretty amazing views. Was nice to just hang out there for a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the lodge. It had several layers of viewpoints that got increasingly further out over the canyon. Really nice.
  • Truly beautiful. From here you can see quite a lot of the canyon, and it's in air-conditioned comfort! Plus, they have a guide so you know what you're looking at. Also, a gift shop.
  • Nice little look out area of the grand canyon, but a little crowded.
  • Good photo spots where you can set the camera on the highest floor with your people on the lower floors.
