This is a great place to stop and learn a little about the Canyon. We stayed here for a fair amount of time as the heavens had opened. The staff in here are always on hand to explain things and seem enthusiastic in what they are saying.

My husband and I didn't see all there is to offer here, just the gift shop and, of course, the canyon itself. I think there was some sort of quick-service food stand (hotdogs and snacks,... More

This is located by the South side of the Canyon. The centre has interactive trip planners, maps of the area and lots of interesting facts. You can hire a bicycle.

Very helpful staffs. They have four different hop on tours that are absolutely free for the tourists. Note that you have to pay 30 dollar per car when you enter the national park.
