  • The east entrance of the Grand Canyon is beautiful and less busy then the main south rim center. The watchtower has some great views and history to enjoy. Take your time and don't rush to the popular areas of the canyon. You'll enjoy it even more.
  • One of the best views to behold in the general area! This is a very serene place but could get busy with tourists. But an amazing place to be nonetheless. Has shops, ice cream and food options but nobody really comes there for that. A must visit if in the area!
