Throwback Thursday to 2018 and a visit to the Grand Canyon. #family #travel #photography David Brodosi.

Grand Canyon National Park, in Arizona, is home to much of the immense Grand Canyon, with its layered bands of red rock revealing millions of years of geological history. Viewpoints include Mather Point, Yavapai Observation Station and architect Mary Colter’s Lookout Studio and her Desert View Watchtower. Lipan Point, with wide views of the canyon and Colorado River, is a popular, especially at sunrise and sunset. David Brodosi



The best times to visit the Grand Canyon are March through May and September through November when daytime temperatures are cool and the crowds are thin. If you decide to visit during the summer (the park's peak season), be prepared for hordes of tourists and very limited lodging availability.

The most developed area of Grand Canyon National Park, the South Rim offers amenities such as bus service, hotels and water stations, but is also more crowded than the North Rim. Scenic highlights include Pipe Creek Vista and Yavapai Point.

I was prepared to be underwhelmed by a big ditch, but all I can say is WOW! The Grand Canyon is really breathtaking and taking the shuttles to the lookout points provided differing perspectives to this natural wonder! One day was hardly enough, next time we will spend more time so we can do some hiking as well!

Teddy Roosevelt called the Grand Canyon one of the great sights that every American should see. And 100 years ago, on February 26, 1919, Congress underscored Roosevelt’s travel recommendation by designating the Arizona canyon a national park.

Hike with a ranger below the canyon rim on the Hermit Trail. Enjoy the canyon’s beauty while learning about its rocks, fossils, plants, animals and more. Bring water, salty snacks, sunscreen, and wear sturdy hiking shoes. To arrive on time, board the free Hermits Rest shuttle bus by 8:00 am. This steep, strenuous 2-mile (3.2-km) round trip hike is not recommended for people with heart or respiratory problems, difficulty walking or extreme fear of heights. 120 Minutes. Family Friendly, Free.

Experience the “dark side” of Grand Canyon. Join a ranger-led walk and activities that will connect children to the canyon’s nocturnal world. Rocky surfaces and uneven terrain; sturdy walking shoes advised. Bring a flashlight.

There are twelve glorious months a year to visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and each season has its own strengths and negatives. The spring and fall are less crowded, and the Kaibab Plateau surrounding the South and North Rims is ablaze with wildflowers from late March through May and with golden aspen in early October. Winter at the South Rim offers the chance to see the multitudinous layers of rock dusted in white, and the smallest crowds of the year, opening the door to availability of the choicest lodging on the Rim and nearby. These three seasons may, however, bring unpredictable temperatures, limited visibility, reduced shuttle routes, shorter days, and fewer National Park programs from which to choose.

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is the most accessible and most popular section of the canyon to visit. This article focuses on the best things to do in the Grand Canyon on the South Rim. At the end of the article, we give you itinerary ideas and tips to help you have the best experience.
