Amazing. You can just sit there and take it all in for hours. The scale of it is Awesome. Beautiful colors and an amazing sunset top it off.

What a stunning park! I visited the Grand Canyon with my best friend and we had a blast! We started with Mather Point and the anticipation from walking from the parking lot to the canyon was incredible. When we first reached the rim it was breathtaking, there were no words to describe the immense beauty that was in front of us. The canyon is HUGE and that's an understatement!
I recently read that on visits to the canyon people on average only actually look at the canyon for 17 minutes. I think they are mistaken as I stared at this thing for quite a while. You can spend plenty of time just walking around and watching the colors change as the sun moves across the canyon, it's phenomenal.
We spent around 4-5 hours walking around the South Rim and I would highly recommend if you are planning on watching the sunset to grab drinks at El Tovar and sit out on the wraparound deck. It's the perfect place to sip on a cocktail while taking in the magnificence that is the Grand Canyon.

The Great Wall of China, Angkor Wat, and the Grand Canyon....these are on my short list of must-do travel destinations that actually live up to all of the hype. If you've only got a day, visit the South Rim, leaving your car behind in Mather Village and taking the free park shuttle buses to viewpoints and hiking trails along the rim. For more offbeat adventures, go to the North Rim (accessible via Utah, nearby Zion & Bryce Canyon National Parks), which gets only 10% of the annual park visitors.

The Grand Canyon is an awe-inspiring sight and the natural beauty of the canyon is truly breath taking. For serious campers/hikers, I recommend securing the proper permits that allow you to camp at the bottom of the canyon. For those of you who are not or dont have all the proper equipment, day hikes are great and you can secure a campground permit within the park. The campgrounds have shuttles that take you to the start of the canyon.

The main road along the southern rim of the canyon has wonderful views, and it is worth exploring multiple vista points, and the perspectives on the canyon change markedly with the light, angle, and size of the cayon at each one.
