There is so much to do and see, you can overwhelm yourself. You can hike the canyon if you are stout of heart. There is plenty of shopping for art, crafts, native American jewelry, books, photographs and more.
But spending time on the rim of the canyon is the main priority. Viewing it’s grandeur from several view points can take all day. Bring as much digital memory as you can for your camera because you will always be seeing another fantastic shot. See the canyon at different times of the day for incredible differences in light. Allow time to sit quietly and just look at it.
You can also learn much about the it’s geological history through Grand canyon tours, museums, books and by asking questions to Park Rangers.
