NUMBER 1

Go to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon

There are two sides to the Grand Canyon – South Rim and North Rim. They are about a 4-hour drive from each other.

If you have never been to the Grand Canyon and you are trying to decide whether to visit the South Rim or the North Rim, then, hands down, go to and spend time at the South Rim. The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is a spectacular place to experience the beauty and grandeur of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River as it carves its way through the canyon. However, the Grand Canyon South Rim is a busy place and you will have plenty of company wherever you go.

Tips for First Visit to Grand Canyon

If you have never been to the Grand Canyon and this is your first visit to Grand Canyon, then, hands down, go to and spend time at the South Rim.

First Visit to Grand Canyon 

Having said that, if you are seeking solitude, then you need to head to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is a fantastic choice if you seek a more primeval, natural, quiet, and uncrowded Grand Canyon experience. Keep in mind that the North Rim is open only during the summer months.

Fly into One of the Closest Airports and Rent a Car

The Grand Canyon South Rim is located 60 miles north of Williams, Arizona (via route 64 from Interstate 40) and 80 miles northwest of Flagstaff, Arizona (via route 180). The Grand Canyon lies entirely within the state of Arizona.

The closest major airports are in Phoenix, AZ, Flagstaff, AZ, Las Vegas, NV, and Salt Lake City, UT. In addition, there is limited air service into Grand Canyon Airport

Once you get to any surrounding airports, rent a car and drive to Grand Canyon National Park:

  • Distance from Phoenix, AZ to Grand Canyon – 224 miles (3h, 30 min)
  • Distance from Flagstaff, AZ to Grand Canyon – 86 miles (1h, 20 min)
  • Distance from Las Vegas, NV to Grand Canyon – 271 miles (4h, 17 min)
  • Distance from Salt Lake City, UT to Grand Canyon – 503 miles (8 hours)

NUMBER 3

Enter the Park Through the East Entrance and Take Desert View Drive

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park has two entrances:

  • South Entrance which you can reach from Hwy 180, and
  • East Entrance on Hwy 64

The majority of the visitors enter from the South Entrance. However, If possible, enter the park from the East Entrance and take Desert View Drive.  Desert View Drive is 25 miles long from the East Entrance to the Grand Canyon Village. Make sure to stop by as many viewpoints located along Desert View Drive as possible. The views along this section of Grand Canyon South Rim are simply off the charts!

If you are into photography, then make sure to check out my post: Best Photography Locations in Grand Canyon National Park. It has a ton of useful photography tips as well.

Visit Grand Canyon National Park at Any Time of The Year

The Grand Canyon South Rim is a great destination to visit at any time of the year. Simply put, no matter when you go, you will experience the beauty and grandeur of the Grand Canyon.

Even though the Grand Canyon is always spectacular, the weather conditions vary considerably from season to season. Here is what you need to know:

  • Spring

Spring, specifically – March, April, May, is the best time to visit the Grand Canyon. The temperatures are mild and range from about 50F to 70F. However, be prepared for occasional showers and even snow. By the same token, you will see fewer crowds and have some serene experiences.

If you are planning to do some hiking in the Grand Canyon, then plan it in the early spring. The inner canyon trails become hot and extremely uncomfortable during the summer months, however, they are wonderful in the early spring.

  • Summer

Summer, namely – June, July, and August, is the high season. It is the busiest time of the year. Needless to say, expect a lot of companionship on the trails and everywhere throughout the park. In addition, it is the hottest time of the year with temperatures ranging from 80F at the rim and climbing above 100F below the rim. Moreover, be prepared for late-summer thunderstorms.

However, you cannot beat long summer days and even if you experience a late-summer thunderstorm, it might be a stunning view at the Grand Canyon.

  • Fall

Fall, specifically – September, October, and November, is my favorite time to visit the Grand Canyon. First of all, you will be able to find some solitude on the trails and at some viewpoints. Second, the weather is usually great. The temperatures range from 50F to 70F. Above all, it usually starts to dry up after the late-summer monsoon season. However, the weather can be unpredictable, so make sure to bring some warm clothes as well.

Furthermore, the fall sunsets are spectacular. The light brings out the colors of red, rust, and orange of the canyon walls.

  • Winter

Winter, specifically – December, January, and February is a good time to visit the Grand Canyon. First of all, the huge tourist crowds are practically gone. However, the temperatures are usually about 40F or below. These are the coldest months with plenty of snowfall. The South Rim averages about 5 feet of snow each winter. Likewise, winter is a magical time with snow covering the canyon.

Simply put, no matter when you go, you will experience the beauty and grandeur of the Grand Canyon.

NUMBER 5

Make Reservations for Your Accommodations Way in Advance

Needless you say, there is nothing like staying inside the park at one of the lodges. You are practically staying at the rim. And, honestly, for me, nothing beats just walking out of your hotel and watching the sunset. Now, if you decide to stay at one of the lodges, then some planning is necessary and you need to reserve your room at least one year in advance.

Following are some of the options of staying inside the Grand Canyon National Park:

  • El Tovar Hotel

My top choice is El Tovar Hotel. It is a historic hotel located directly on the rim of the Grand Canyon. It first opened its doors in 1905. The hotel was designed by Charles Whittlesey, Chief Architect for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway.  The hotel was built from local limestone and Oregon pine. It cost $250,000 to build, and many considered it the most elegant hotel west of the Mississippi River.

In 1987 the Hotel was designated a National Historic Landmark.  In the past, the hotel has hosted such luminaries as Theodore Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, Western author Zane Grey, President Bill Clinton, Sir Paul McCartney, and countless others. El Tovar has 78 rooms many of which are suites. If possible, book a suite! Due to the historic nature of the hotel, no two rooms are alike, which gives the hotel distinctive charm. In addition, make sure to check out the restaurant located in the hotel.

Can’t beat El Tovar’s location! It is perched right at the rim. In addition, due to the historic nature of the hotel, no two rooms are alike, which gives the hotel distinctive charm.

First Visit to Grand Canyon 

  • Bright Angel Lodge and Cabins

Bright Angel Lodge is located at the top of Bright Angel Trailhead. It was designed in 1935 by famed Southwest architect Mary E.J. Colter. Bright Angel Lodge has a natural rustic character and is a Registered National Historic Landmark. Bright Angel Lodge has 90 units ranging from rustic cabins to lodge rooms (with no television and shared bath).

  • Kachina Lodge and Thunderbird Lodge

Katchina Lodge and Thunderbird Lodge are my two personal favorites. They both sit along the Rim Trail in the National Landmark Historic District. Above all, they are practically a stone’s throw from the canyon abyss.

  • Maswik Lodge

Maswik Lodge is less expensive than the options above. However, it is a 250-room lodging complex located in the Ponderosa pine forest about a quarter-mile from the canyon’s edge.

Ok, so if everything is booked inside the park, which happened to me many times before, then, you need to look into some of the accommodations outside the Grand Canyon National Park. The good news is that there are numerous accommodations available in the gateway community of Tusayan. Tusayan is located 7 miles south of Grand Canyon Village, along Arizona Highway 64. Following are some of the options:

Holiday Inn Express Grand Canyon

Best Western Canyon Squire Inn

Red Feather Lodge

If you are staying at one of the lodges in Tusayan between March 1 and October 30 the park provides a free shuttle bus service between Tusayan Hotels and the South Rim Visitor Center. Furthermore, Tusayan Route shuttle buses pick up visitors in Tusayan at the following four stops: IMAX Theater/ R.P.’s Stage Stop, Best Western Grand Canyon Squire Inn, The Grand Hotel, Big E Steakhouse, and Saloon.

After making four stops in Tusayan, the shuttle bus heads straight to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center By the way, shuttle buses run every 20 minutes between 8 am and 9:30 pm. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the Visitor Center.

To use Purple Route/Tusayan Route shuttle bus, you must present a valid park entrance pass when boarding the bus. It is no big deal, you can buy an entrance pass online at  https://yourpassnow.com/ParkPass/park/grca An online pass will admit everyone traveling with you in your car or personal vehicle. In addition, you can purchase an entrance pass in Tusayan at the following locations: National Geographic Visitor Center (IMAX Theater), Grand Canyon South Rim Chamber of Commerce, R.P.’s Stage Stop, Red Feather Lodge, Canyon Plaza Resort.

NUMBER 6

Arrive Early and Stay Late

If you are staying outside the park, then do not feel like you have to leave the park at a certain hour. Absolutely not! Grand Canyon National Park is open 24 hours a day throughout the entire year. So, arrive as early and stay as late as you want.

However, if you are visiting during the winter months, then you need to keep in mind that there may be temporary road closures during and shortly after winter snowstorms. Roads stay closed until plowing is completed and conditions are safe for visitor traffic.

NUMBER 7

Watch Sunrise and Sunset in Grand Canyon National Park

Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular in Grand Canyon National Park. It seems like the entire canyon comes alive and the colors of orange and red become extremely vivid.

Now, the best time for sunrise photography is actually before sunrise. It is known as the Golden Hour. The light is warmer and softer during that time. The same is true for sunset photography. The best light is actually after the sunset and there are no dramatic shadows.

Also, make sure to stay a bit longer after the sunset and wait for the famous Blue Hour. It happens when the sun is way below the horizon and the light has a slightly blue tint.

NUMBER 8

Buy America the Beautiful Pass Instead of a Single Entrance Ticket

All visitors are required to purchase a recreational use pass. You pay for the pass at the entrance to the park. In addition, you can buy the pass online. The pass is valid for seven consecutive days including the date of purchase. The pass includes both the North Rim and South Rim.

Following are the prices:

  • Grand Canyon National Park Vehicle Permit – $35. It admits one single, private, non-commercial vehicle and all its passengers.
  • Grand Canyon National Park Motorcycle Permit – $30. It admits one single, private, non-commercial motorcycle and its passenger(s).
  • Grand Canyon National Park Individual Permit – $20/person. It admits one individual when entering by foot, bicycle, park shuttle bus, Grand Canyon Railway, and private rafting trip. Individuals 15 years old and younger are admitted free of charge.

Now, if you are visiting several national parks during your vacation, you should consider purchasing an annual pass. And, by the way, a trip to Grand Canyon National Park is perfectly combined with a visit to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park!

The cost of the annual pass is $80. An annual pass is your ticket to more than 2,000 federal recreation sites, such as national parks, national wildlife refuges, national forests, and grasslands. You can purchase the pass online. Following is the website: America the Beautiful – National Parks & Federal Recreational Lands Annual Pass

NUMBER 9

Use Grand Canyon Shuttle Bus Service

Free shuttle bus service is offered inside the Grand Canyon South Rim National Park. You can hop on hop off at any of the shuttle stops and use the shuttle bus service as many times as you need. The shuttle is not mandatory, however, it is highly recommended especially during the summer months, since finding a parking spot could be challenging. In addition, you will save money on gas and you will not be stuck in traffic.

There are five routes covered by the Grand Canyon shuttle bus service:

  • Blue Route/Village Route
  • Orange Route/Kaibab Rim Route
  • Red Route/Hermits Rest Route
  • Purple Route/Tusayan Route
  • Hiker’s Express Route

I wrote a post about the Grand Canyon South Rim shuttle bus service. It contains several handy maps and explains each route in detail.

NUMBER 10

Do Not Rely on Cell Phone Reception Inside the Park

Verizon has a tower inside the park, so their customers typically get the best reception. Everyone else can expect spotty to non-existent reception. As a result, do not rely on cell phone coverage in the Grand Canyon National Park.

I usually download google offline maps and use them to help me navigate the places without cell phone reception.

Stop By the Famous Viewpoints Along the Grand Canyon South Rim (Hermit Road)

Take the Grand Canyon Shuttle Bus and stop by all the famous viewpoints in Grand Canyon South Rim along Hermit Road (west side).

Following are my favorite viewpoints along the South Rim.

  • Yavapai Point

Yavapai Point sits at the most northerly section of the Grand Canyon South Rim. Consequently, you will get the best view of the famous three points: Cape Royal, Wotans Throne, and Vishnu Temple. In addition, look down the gorge and onto the serpentine Colorado River.

  • Mather Point 

Mather Point is the busiest viewpoint in the Grand Canyon South Rim. However, it is one of the park’s most spectacular vantage points. The Colorado River is practically below your feet. To the west is Bright Angel Trail, to the east is the South Kaibab Trail, and straight ahead is the North Rim.

  • Maricopa Point

Maricopa Point sits on a narrow promontory extending northeast and then dropping vertically. The vistas towards the east and west of the canyon are excellent here. In addition, the views extend to the North Rim.

  • Hopi Point

Hopi Point is one of my personal favorites. It is one of the best all-around viewpoints in the Grand Canyon. Jutting out farther into the Canyon than any other point on the South Rim, Hopi Point offers incredible views. In addition, it is a great spot to come back to and watch the sunset. You will be able to catch all the reds, rusts, and oranges of the canyon walls as the sun is setting down.

Moreover, Hopi Point offers excellent views of the stone “temples”. Temples, in this case, are rock formations rising from the depths of the canyon.

If you look at the above photograph all the way to the horizon, you will be able to see the North Rim. Follow the North Rim up to the first indentation. This is Cape Royal. Cape Royal is a type of temple formed when side-canyon erosion produces peninsula-like projection along the rim. Afterward, follow the horizon to the next temple. It is Wotan Throne. It was formed by erosion which transformed the peninsula into an island, and eventually, it was separated from the rim. Finally, let your eyes wander to the last rock formation. It is called Vishnu Temple. Vishnu Temple was formed by further erosion, where the softer rock crumbles and undercuts harder rock.

  • Mohave Point

Mohave Point is awesome! If you thought that Hopi Point was good, just wait till you get to Mohave Point. Not only you will catch the dramatic vistas here, but also you will be able to see some excellent views of the river and rapids below. In addition, stretching out below the lookout is a rocky promontory known as the Alligator, as it twists toward the river beyond. To the northwest, you can see Hermit Rapid, created when the side of the canyon collapsed into the river.

Next, take the path that goes from Mohave Point to Pima Point. The path goes along the Abyss and travels along at one most scenic segment along the rim. Moreover, the path traverses very closely to the edge of the canyon and you will be able to catch some great views down to the canyon.

The Abyss lookout point is one of the most dramatic viewpoints in the Grand Canyon. Notably, it is located on the very edge of the rim and gives you an almost vertical look down into the canyon below. In the distance, you can see the Colorado River set against the backdrop of the layered rocks.

Take a Drive on Desert View Road

Map of Desert View Drive in Grand Canyon National Park

Make sure to take a drive along Desert View Drive and stop by some of the viewpoints. Keep in mind that the Grand Canyon Shuttle Bus Service does not operate in this section of the Grand Canyon, so you will have to use your own vehicle.

Here are my favorite viewpoints along Desert View Drive:

  • Grandview Point

Grandview Point stands tall at 7,100 feet. It is one of the highest viewpoints in Grand Canyon South Rim. In addition, it is the southernmost point on the canyon. The views are magnificent here. Grandview Point overlooks the dense forests and the Horseshoe Mesa. By the way, Grandview Point is the start of Grandview Trail which leads to Horseshoe Mesa.

  • Moran Point

Once you reach Moran Point and glance all around you, you will get a true sense of the vastness of the Grand Canyon South Rim. Furthermore, directly below Moran Point sits the Red Canyon and the colors are just staggering here. The reds, oranges, and rusts glow beautifully, especially in the afternoon sun. To top it off, the sparkling Colorado River finally makes a longer appearance. Finally, try to find the Sinking Ship, a fascinating geological formation that appears as if it was a sinking vessel against the setting sun.

By the way, Moran Point is named after Thomas Moran, a painter who traveled to the Grand Canyon with John Wesley Powell in 1873. If you like Thomas Moran’s paintings following is a website with a recap of his life and work: Thomas Moran

  • Desert View

Desert View is the highest viewpoint on the Grand Canyon South Rim with an elevation of 7,438 feet. Consequently, Desert View offers sweeping views of the Grand Canyon South Rim and the Colorado River.

Perched on the edge of the Grand Canyon South Rim sits Desert View Watchtower. Designed by Mary Colter, Desert View Watchtower combines traditional Southwest architectural styles like Spanish Colonial, Mission, and Native American elements, which we call today Santa Fe style.

So, with no further delay, head to the tower. Inside you will find a spiral stairway that winds five stories high. Head straight to the top and as you are climbing the stairs look through many windows and see mile upon mile of magnificent views. By the way, the windows have reflectoscopes, which are viewing instruments that enhance the colors by using black glass. Once you get to the top, check out the observation deck, which offers great views of the eastern part of the Grand Canyon South Rim.

Hike Below the Rim

The best way to get the full Grand Canyon experience is to mix the scenic viewpoints with some hikes below the rim.

  • South Kaibab Trail in Grand Canyon National Park 

If you can only do one hike at the Grand Canyon, then South Kaibab Trail is the top best choice. Be prepared to be amazed by the sweeping views as you hike along a dramatic ridgeline. Above all, you will get to see the spectacular beauty of the Grand Canyon from below the rim.

South Kaibab Trail in Grand Canyon

If you can only do one hike at the Grand Canyon, then South Kaibab Trail is the top best choice.

There is regular drinking water and covered rest-houses along the way. In addition, there are ranger stations located at the trail’s halfway point (Indian Garden) and the bottom of the canyon (Bright Angel Campground).

Above all, be prepared to be stunned by the sweeping views as you hike below the rim along Bright Angel Trail.

Intrepid Scout's Tips for First Visit to Grand Canyon National Park

  • Get to the Grand Canyon as Early as Possible

You will see people start arriving at the park around 10 am. I recommend that you get to the Grand Canyon National Park before 10 am.

First, you will be able to find some solitude on the trails and at viewpoints. Second, it gets very congested during the high season. Getting there early ensures that you have the roads to yourself. Next, there is limited parking, so needless to say, if you are at the park early you do not have to waste precious time waiting for a vacant parking spot.

  • Dress in Layers

No matter when you are visiting the Grand Canyon National Park, pack warm clothes and dress in layers. Even in the summer, the evenings can be very chilly.

  • Be Aware of High Elevations

Even mild exertion may leave you feeling completely out of breath, light-headed and nauseated. So, take plenty of breaks, and drink lots of water.

  • Do Not Feed Wildlife

Above all, do not feed wildlife. First, they get used to being fed and consequently, visit the campsites and parking lots looking for food. In addition, human food is not the best option for their diets. Lastly, they bite. Keep your food and your fingers to yourself.
