    The Grand Canyon needs little introduction, but even knowing what to expect does little to prepare for you the breathtaking natural splendor of one of the world’s most famous sites. We’ve all seen the astonishing images of the massive mile-deep trench, but it’s easy to forget there’s a whole gargantuan national park to explore, too.

    While the two rims of the canyon might be ten miles apart (at their widest) as the crow flies, they’re a couple of hundred by road, so most visitors choose one or the other rim to head for and stick to it. Pick the south side and you’ll be following the crowd, but that does have the benefit of easy access, plenty of services and being the spot where most of those incredible panoramic pictures are snapped.

    Head for the north side and you’ll find yourself more isolated, 1,000ft higher and able to explore the wildflower plains that come with the higher altitude. It’s surprising how far from civilization it can feel on ‘the other side’, especially considering the five million annual visitors the national park attracts. Although you can pick out the ant-like figures on across the canyon, it gives a real ‘into the wild’ feel at times.

    If you prefer your tourism a little more packaged, the new Grand Canyon Skywalk offers an intimidating new angle on things, allowing you to stroll out over a substantial drop, fighting your vertigo every step of the way. If you’re feeling financially flush, there’s always the magnificent helicopter trip, too.

    It’s not all about the Canyon, either. The National Park is home to an incredibly diverse selection of wildlife, including 350 types of bird, 47 different types of reptile and even five types of fish that simply can’t be found anywhere else on earth. While you might well have trouble dragging yourself away from the banks of the Colorado River and its soaring sides, animal lovers will find plenty to ogle if they do.

    This iconic sight is one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunities you just don’t want to miss, though, and however you see it, it’s truly captivating.

    The North rim is well worth the extra drive. It is higher up with beautiful trees and a pleasant warm by day and cool by night in the summer, and always open then. Summer on the south rim closes and locks their gates when they get enough people there. It is an uncomfortable hot in the summer.

        • Awesome! Wish we had more time to explore. I'd definitely recommend making a full trip out of the Grand Canyon. We just stopped on our way from the West coast to the East. It's $30 for a week pass per car to enter at the South rim, which is supposedly the most popular and most accessible. It's definitely handicap accessible. We saw several wheelchairs and canes. It's also dog-friendly. The gift shop doesn't seem too overpriced either. We bought a reusable water bottle and three postcards for less than $15. I wish they had a ground water fountain for dogs. We couldn't find one and had to go back to the car for our dog dish. Try to get there before noon. We got there at 10 am and it took us about 10 minutes to find a parking spot, but folks were fighting over spaces on our way out around 12:30-1 pm.
        • It is one of the places that was on my bucket list! Pictures don't quite do this place justice. It is something you need to see for yourself. To visit, you don't have to be in great shape, i am perfect example of that. We walked around the rim trail and found a spot just to take it all in. Take your time and try to relax and enjoy the natural wonder. Definitely do a little planning especially if you plan on hiking down, check the weather at the canyon, bring enough water. If you forgot, you can always pick up a souvenir cup and top off at the beginning of the trail. If you have a national park card it will save a little time waiting and can offer discounts and transportation options. You can pick it up at many locations around the country. It is a big park, so Google it, to find out what fits your objectives. Plenty of options at all price points and some of the best things are free but you may need to walk a bit. Enjoy.
        • WOW this place was amazing!! The views you get in person can't compare to no pictures or videos. You really have to go here to experience it for yourself! The mountain views seriously make you feel like you are in fantasy world and makes you ask yourself how was this creation even possible. Also, the scenic trails were very nice and fun to do. If you had to pick one National Park to visit during your time in Vegas, I would pick either Bryce or Zion over Grand Canyon. Feel like those two are better for a scenic view and hiking.
        • We have visited the park a few times now and there is so much to see! The south part of the park and the north part of the park are separated by a 213 mile drive. No... that is not an exaggeration and both sides are really worth seeing. The North Rim part takes you through some beautiful forest before taking you up to the rim of the canyon where there are cabins you can rent in the non winter months and a visitor center which they were renovating when we visited. The views from the north rim really are quite amazing. There is a short 1 mile hike that takes you out to a crows nest of sorts that gives you a 270 degree view of the amazing canyon. There is also a trail that goes down to the bottom of the canyon a few miles from the north rim visitor center that you will pass on the way in and way out. I would say you can hit the north rim and see most of what is offered in about an hour. The south entrance to the park has miles and miles of roads to traverse tons of lookouts a long the way. Boat loads of picture opportunities! Honestly, I was more impressed by the north rim views but there was much more to see an much more variety through the south entrance. Unfortunately, there are no faces carved into the stone here like we thought... it turns out, that place is called "Mount Rushmore" and evidently is in South Dakota. Live and learn. All these pictures are from the North Rim. They don't do it justice though. If you found this review helpful, please click "Like" below.
        • We had a wonderful experience visiting south rim. It was safe. We rode shuttle and also walked. Since it's a very high place on earth with very dry weather, carry enough water and also sunscreen. We stayed four hours there and drove from Vegas. Driving was good.
