  • Early April 2019 visit to South Rim of Grand Canyon. Photos are our arrival after 5pm. Worked out with an unbelievable sunset! Bathrooms, book store, museum, easy rim trail and available colored coded shuttles to take you to different parts of the park, all with plenty of large viewing windows! Parking is scattered around park, though not always displayed on informational boards. Was not too busy nor crowded. Next morning. Established hiking trail on South Rim... for the adventurous! No fencing nor rails. For the fainted hearted with acrophobia, walked only five switches, then returned. Absolutely incredible views! Yet for people like me, only from the top of the Rim. Last photo with morning blue sky was my stopping point of my hike. Such beauty, such magnificent grandeur. A must-see national park!
  • A wealth of information here. This is the final catch all stop before you head in or head out of the Grand Canyon area. For those who haven't visit here before, I recommend you spend about a bit of time here to get an understanding and history of the Grand Canyon, look at the map and ask staff here for advice on planning your visit (Don't try to cram everything in a day). It'll be good time to double check your day pack and lock your car before you catch the bus. Restroom here are clean but do expect a line during their busy time.
