What to do and what to see:

The Grand Canyon’s East Rim Drive is a beautiful sightseeing driving destination located geographically at the Grand Canyon’s South Rim in Arizona, between Grand Canyon Village and the Desert View overlook at the National Park’s eastern gate. This 26-mile stretch of Highway 64 located within the Grand Canyon National Park continues on through the state’s raw, unspoiled Navajo Reservation desert, and several scenic overlooks are scattered along the National Park portion of the route. A visitors’ center is located at Mather Point, and several impressive look-out points and walking paths are located off the main road. Take plenty of water and sun-block for this desert trek, and be prepared to be impressed with all that Mother Nature has to offer on East Rim Drive.
