anyone been to the Grand Canyon?

I've got about a 30 hour window to visit the place in my travels, looking for a nice place to stay and best advise as what I should put at the top of my list for views or section...I know nothing about the desert but if you come to Maine or Boston I'll hook you up

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

I was in a big hurry and did a Chevy Chase ... I regret not seeing it now...oh well .

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: anyone been to the Grand Canyon?

Well we drove out there from Flagstaff (a little over and hour away) and hit most of the observation pts that you could drive to on the south rim. Then parked and took the bus on the hermits rest route (no cars allowed) and hit up the obs pts off that. Worked out well for us. Left about 11am and got back to Flagstaff by dark.


Here's one of the GC and one of the kids enjoying it.

Do the donkey ride down to the bottom if they still have it. I always wish we had (although it would have been scary as all get out)

Must obey the sheep dog

Re: anyone been to the Grand Canyon?

Stay in Vegas and take the heli tour.

Best bet: South rim for sure, stay at the Best Western in the town of Grand Canyon. Nice hotel, even nicer surroundings. You could take the hike or donkey ride down, but being your first time out you'll most likely end up sitting back wondering WTF and taking in the views from an ob post.
