Visiting the Grand Canyon was and awe-inspiring view. The huge openings in the land will make everyone say WOW! It’s a gift from past generations and the beauty and size humble us. There are various points to go to while exploring the grand tour. Mohave point and Hopi point are only two stops that are at the Southern Rim of the canyon.
Getting there is relatively easy:
Or you can take the Grand Canyon railway from a town called Williams. It takes about two hours. While on the railway you will experience many different western characters singing, performing and telling jokes. Serving light snacks and drinks.
I recommend traveling to Arizona by airplane and renting an automobile. Tthere are plenty of places to stay. Although, I would make lodging reservations before arriving makes life easier. Maswik Lodge is one place to mention because that is where we stayed while visiting.
The SOUTH RIM is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Services are available and facilities are open year round.
