Best time to visit
March through May and September through November are the best times to visit the Grand Canyon as the temperature is mild, the days are cool, and the crowds are less. Summer is peak tourist season, so if you are planning to visit during that time, be prepared for lots of crowds and limited accommodation availability.
At nearly 280 miles in length and up to nearly 80 miles in width, the Grand Canyon is difficult to miss. Most people drive to the Grand Canyon. From Las Vegas, you can hit the West Rim in just over two hours. And, a 4-hour drive will get you from Phoenix to the South Rim. What’s more important is how you will get around the park. Driving everywhere can be a hassle because parking is limited, especially at popular spots. We suggest you take the shuttles. Its hassle-free and will take you almost everywhere you’d want to go.
Short on cash? No problem! Not many people know that you can enter the Grand Canyon National Park for free on certain days of the year, including some national holidays. In 2018, you can save the cost of admission fees for the whole gang on April 21st, September 22nd, and November 11th! Although, you should expect crowds.
