The Amazing Facts: Grand Canyon is one of the world's natural wonders every American should see. It's 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,093 feet or 1,857 meters). Grand Canyon is in the northwest corner of Arizona, close to the borders of Utah and Nevada. The Colorado River, which flows through the canyon, drains water from seven states, it has been eroding its steep sides for millions of years, but the feature we know as Grand Canyon is entirely in Arizona. The Grand Canyon is around 6000 (1800 metres) feet deep. The different types of rock visible in the Grand Canyon make it an important site for geological research. Carved by the copper-colored Colorado River, the colorful rock layers record billions of years of history and hide many unique species. Some scientists believe that the Grand Canyon is 70 million years old. Others contend that the natural wonder is only between five and six million years old.

Best Time to Visit: The best times to visit the Grand Canyon are from March through May and September through November when daytime temperatures are cool and less visitors. During the summer, the park's peak season from June to October lodging availability is very limited. Grand Canyon - USA - April, 2015

What to Wear & Things to Do: In the summer, wear shorts, long-sleeved t-shirts, and running shoes with a light jacket or sweater. In the winter, jeans, good hiking shoes or boots, bring a winter jacket or sweater.

South Rim. It's home to many of the most memorable viewpoints, the South Rim is the ideal destination for first-time Grand Canyon Visitors. If you have small children, you may prefer to visit the South Rim Viewpoints, Yavapai Museum of Geology, Bike Along Hermit Road, Walk the South Rim Trail, Hike Below the Rim or Ride a Mule Into the Grand Canyon.

Tusayan and Williams. Located 8 and 60 miles from the South Rim respectively, are the most nearest options for booking your South Rim hotel, particularly if you are unable to secure a reservation at one of the Grand Canyon National Park lodges along the rim. Desert View Watch Tower - Grand Canyon South Rim - May, 2015

Our Trip: We drove from Santa Clara, California and spent a night in Las Vegas. Spent the next night at a small town called Williams on the way to the Grand Canyon. In the morning we drove up to the South Rim, as the North Rim is not accessible in early May. The Explorer - Grand Canyon South Rim - May, 2015 The entrance fee was $35 per vehicle and we parked close to the visitor center. The center is very informative albeit small, but what most people go for is the views and these were absolutely amazing, literally you have to see it. We walked from the viewing point by the visitor center to Mather Point, and drove to the Bright Angel Trail and also the Yavapai Geology Museum. The museum is also small but has amazing views. We spent 4 hours there however we wish we could've stayed longer but we had to get back to Las Vegas. There are plenty of amenities around and the park is exceptionally well maintained. Try to get to the Canyon early, the crowds significantly increase before lunch. Bring a camera, binocular, lunch, light snack and plenty of water. Take lots of pictures and offer to take pictures for other visitors.

The average high at the South Rim in May is 71°F/22°C at night, and the average low is 36°F/2°C. However, it was much warmer and humid inside the Canyon. The trip was unpleasant due to the humidity and children with an absent mother figure tend to have trouble connecting with others. This is what happened when children suffered from emotional imbalances. It was their first trip without mother so we cut the vacation short and raced home.

Breathtaking. You really can't appreciate the scale of the Grand Canyon until you stand at the rim. Leisurely hike along the Rim Trail will create a lifetime of memories and breath taking beauty. Magnificent layered bands of red and pinkish rock, one upon the other. Awesome, breathtaking, and serene. Grand Canyon South Rim is most frequently visited by first-time visitors to the area not only for its beautiful views, but for its abundance of visitor services and family-oriented activities. Even from just a few yards below the rim, you’ll see Grand Canyon from a delightful perspective and realize how, even in the warmest months, this is a summer to remember.
