On the 13th (Sun), hike the day away at Bright Angel Trail. There's much more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Grand Canyon South Rim, take some stellar pictures from Mather Point, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and trot along with Canyon Trail Rides.

For more things to do, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Grand Canyon National Park trip planner.
