    This is one of the most amazing places you will ever see in your life. The views are astonishing from almost every angle. Makes you realise just how small we are, and put things in perspective. Enjoy.

    No need to worry about crowds in winter. While the North Rim at the Arizona park closes, the icy South Rim stays open year-round. Take a ride on the Grand Canyon Railway if you prefer to stay warm. Read more

    Visit in the winter, the weather is great and the canyon blanketed in snow is incredible. Best lemonade in the world is at the cantina at the bottom, a worthy 5 hour hike, with beauty at every breath

    When visiting the southern rim, take the lesser driven road to Cameron and be treated to: vistas w/out crowds, Mary Colter Tower, and the incredible view of the canyon sliding into the painted desert.

    At the entry gate, lane one is pre-paid and all the others are for anyone (look for the green light to tell if a lane is open). Everyone lines up in lane 2 and 3 and ignores lanes 4 and 5.

    This amazing geological national park is breath taking. A couple of days is not enough to tour just a portion of the sites. You must bring your camera and tripod to get those jaw dropping photos.

    One of the 7 wonders of the world. This site will take your breath away. If you want to add a little adventure to your trip and not just look. Hike down a trail and get a different view!

    For a short trip, I recommend joining an early morning air tour to the West Rim. There are no barriers, no crazy crowds and the whole experience is very well organized by the local people.

    Comprising of more than 227 miles, it's easy to get overwhelmed at the Grand Canyon. Make sure you to wear Michelin Pilot hiking shoes handy and take in the breathtaking views from all sides.

    Appeal to little ones' adventurous spirits with plentiful outdoor activities, from hiking to whitewater rafting to mule rides down into the canyon (book ahead through www.grandcanyonlodges.com).

    All of the construction at the South Entrance visitor center makes everything a big mess. The staff at the visitor center are more interested in chatting with one another than helping visitors.

    The Grand Canyon in Arizona is an breathtaking geologic spectacle. An average of one mile deep for its entire 277-mile span, the canyon is 6,000 feet deep at its deepest point and 18 miles wide.

    Go back in time and visit the only place in the country where mail is delivered by mule. The village of Supai, located at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, is so remote that no roads can access it.

    Go around sunset. It has the most beautiful colors that reflect from the sun. Drop by the town of Bedrock on the way there & go visit Fred and the gang. -Suggested tip from Judy A., Safelite associate

    Take a great landscape shot of the Grand Canyon: Shoot from a high vantage point in the early morning or late evening. A tripod is recommended but not required. There’s a way.

    Every view is stunning! Must see it at all different times of day for different lighting. The same view will look so different.

    If you're taking a bus tour, don't think about what would happen if your driver has a heart attack as you cruise next to the rim. Or what might happen if your brakes go out.

    The canyon chronicles 2 billion years of history, like an encyclopedia of Earth. A great combination of steepness and deepness, its colors are also simply unforgettable. Read more

    Don't bother with the Sky Walk. It's pricey, not impressive and you can't take your camera on deck. The views on the 2nd stop are amazing and you could jump off taking pictures if you wanted to.

    With average summer temperatures reaching 106 degrees, it is important to stay hydrated and to apply sunscreen 30 minutes before exposure. There’s a way to stay well.

    If at all possible, the canyon on a full moon night, or no moon night. Breathtaking. Bring a guitar and loved one. But always, always visit, & explore a little :)

    My favorite National Park. They should rename it to the Grandest Canyon. Make sure you stay for a sunset.

    Do the boat and helicopter ride. Can skip the skywalk if u want. The view from there is amazing but not allowing cameras is annoying.

    Try to get to the park after 10pm to avoid the $25 entrance fee, stay the night at a park lodge and enjoy a tour the next day

    Great for relatively quick visits, but big enough that you could spend multiple days and still not see it all!
