The West Rim of the Grand Canyon is the closest Rim to Las Vegas (around 3 hours by road) meaning the West Rim is one of the most visited and the widest range of tours are available. This is a true desert landscape and this part of the Grand Canyon is still owned by two Native American tribes. The West Rim has many provisions for tourists including the famous Skywalk.
The South Rim is considered by many to be the “real” Grand Canyon and offers arguably the most breathtaking scenery. To reach the South Rim takes around 5 hours by road from Las Vegas. The South Rim offers many spectacular panorama points and an abundance of tourist facilities.
The North Rim is the most remote and least visited part of the Grand Canyon and this is the place to come if you want to experience the Grand Canyon away from the crowds. The North Rim is at a higher altitude that the other Rims and is inaccessible during the winter due to heavy snowfall.
