  • The ride on the point Imperial drive leads through forests and meadows. The point is Imperial, which allows a maniacal look on the Grand Canyon, and over on the South Rim.

  • Everywhere you go at the North Rim the views are fantastic. This is about 11 mile drive from the North Rim Lodge but once there you can see the views from the parking area. Worth a visit  more »
  • From Point Imperial you see the northern part of the Grand Canyon and the plateaus beyond it. There is also a trail from here, and there are bathrooms.  more »

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.
