The Historic Center of Grand Canyon Tourism

It can be crowded, but this is where GC tourism began. Historic buildings, good views of the canyon, food and all conveniences. Definitely worth a stopover.

Best value is getting food and snacks from the General Store. Snacks other places were more expensive and less choices.

as always all the employees and rangers at the NP places are very friendly. The busses are free of charge (also as usual). Basically, I don't know what I could complain about.

Spent 2 days at the Grand Canyon. Enjoyed the village very much. Disappointed that the Hopi Dance Group cancelled their presentation.

We are touring the Southwest and finally made it to the Canyon. In a word, spectacular. We walked the South Rim trail from the Visitor's Center to El Tovar Hotel. The NPS had done a wonderful job making the walk accessible and still maintain the beauty. There really isn't a bad view. There is plenty to do, places to eat,... More

Enjoyed every minute of the Grand Canyon, from hiking the trails to the visitor centers to the village and gift shops. People were pleasant and very cordial. Enjoyed talking to them

There are many eateries, shops here as well as the footpaths/trails to get down further into the canyon. A walk along the rim is ideal to see the true depth of the canyon.

We enjoyed the day we spent in the village. But it is not a cheap venture. Food is especially expensive and really only so-so for the price.

It was very easy to get around along the rim. The free shuttle bus service also made it easy to get to all the must see places.

See the movie and visit the Visitor Center. The scenery is awesome. The village store has lots to purchase and moderately priced. Best thing is it all goes back to the Park.
