The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is the most visited and popular destination of this national park. Stunning views, tourist hot spots, restaurants, lodges and major trailheads are all found here. Book any kind of tour and there is availability from the South Rim. Lodging is rustic and levels of comfort don’t reach the standards of cities, but if it’s getting back to nature you want and with the canyon at your fingertips, this is the place to be. The South Rim offers easy access to all feeder locations like Las Vegas, Flagstaff and Williams.
