    Last point on the Red Line Shuttle Route before you get to Hermit's Rest. The views are beautiful and change throughout the day with changes in the lighting.  more »

    Neat destination for the family. One to remember. Buses are not that great but they work. Ride bikes!

    Beautiful views of course. We were there off season, so we were able to drive our vehicle out there. I believe its only accessible by the bus during peak summer season. But its nice because then we could take our time and soak up the view for as long as we liked.

    Beautiful views year round, buses take you here and all around every 15 minutes, all in all just a beautiful, awe-inspiring place to visit.

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.
