HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE TO SPEND AT THE GRAND CANYON?A HALF-DAY OR 1-2+FULL DAYS?
Because the entire Grand Canyon-regardless of South or North Rim-is in a remote part of Northern Arizona,half-day driving trips to the Grand Canyon are nearly impossible unless you're already starting from Williams or Flagstaff,located 60-90 miles respectively,from the South Rim.Half-day Grand Canyon trips are do-able from Las Vegas,Williams,Flagstaff,Sedona and Phoenix when you book a driving-plus-helicopter or airplane tour combination.
Again,your origination point will influence whether you'll see the South Rim or the North Rim.If you're coming from Las Vegas and you have just a half-day to see the Grand Canyon,definitely plan on taking a helicopter or airplane tour and seeing the South Rim.There are several Las Vegas helicopter and air tours that land at the Grand Canyon Airport in Tusayan near the South Rim.If you're coming from Sedona or Phoenix,you can take a helicopter tour straight to the South Rim.If you're coming from Flagstaff or any other Arizona departure point,plan on driving 2 hours or more to the South Rim,then taking a 30-45 minute helicopter tour from Grand Canyon Airport,located in the village of Tusayan.
If you have one full day to see the Grand Canyon,those driving from Las Vegas will still likely choose the South Rim(a 16 hour day,including drive time)although the North Rim takes the same amount of time(a 16 hour day.)Folks coming from all points Arizona will likely want to visit the South Rim(about a 12 hour day)versus the North Rim(an 16-20 hour day.)
Needless to say,if you have multiple days to see the Grand Canyon,either Rim-or even both-is do-able as long as you plan nearby overnight accommodations.The vast majority of visitors choose to stay overnight in or around the South Rim since there are significantly more lodging choices and room availability at the South Rim than the very-remote North Rim.
