The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is open all year, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The summer months are the busy time. Fall and winter show a different side of Grand Canyon and you are more likely to be able to get reservations for trips, campgrounds, etc. and encounter much less traffic. Visitor services are available year round. If you decide to go in the summer months, call our Complementary Concierge Services - 800-923-2282 - and we will give you suggestions for the best visitor tours or check out our Adventure page and find ways you can fly over the canyon in a plane, helicopter or balloon; ride a mule to the bottom of the canyon, etc.
A free shuttle bus system operates in the Grand Canyon Village area. Make your visit easier by parking your car at the Visitor Center and using the free shuttle buses to get around the village.
