When's the popular times to visit Grand Canyon? Our travel advice offered the answer as below. Or you can find the right Grand Canyon bus tours from Las Vegas on the Globerouter.com website. Nearly five million people travel here each year; 90 percent first see the canyon from the South Rim with its dramatic views into the deep inner gorge of the Colorado River.

Popular Times to Visit Grand Canyon:

If you decide to visit during the summer (the park's peak season), be prepared for hordes of tourists and very limited lodging availability. You can find deals on hotels during the winter, but much of the park (including the entire North Rim) closes after the first snowfall. The South Rim is open year-round.

September-November

Autumn marks another sweet spot for Grand Canyon tourism. With the kids back in school and parents back to work, there are far fewer tourists competing for hotel rooms and trail territory. Temperatures around this time range from the mid-20s to mid-70s, so make sure to pack some warm clothes. Also, you'll find that more facilities and trails are open around September and October, but once snow begins to fall, you can count on many areas (particularly the North Rim) to be out of commission.

December-February

This is by far the most peaceful season at the Grand Canyon, so if you're looking for a calm, quiet visit, this is the time to go. However, prepare yourself for frosty temperatures ranging anywhere from the mid-40s down to the high teens. Because it can see upward of 200 inches of snow each winter, the North Rim will be closed to visitors, but many of the South Rim trails remain open. Just be sure to pack warm clothes and waterproof shoes.
