A great day at Grand Canyon starts with a walk along the Rim at sunrise with your camera in tow. Ranger Programs are held throughout the day on various park-related topics (see your copy of The Guide, provided at the entrance station, for details).

After the concert you’ll want to walk along the Rim. While the Canyon is out of view at night, the stars are in their glory! Bring your telescope or binoculars and celebrate the night sky. If you plan to camp, be sure to reserve your campsite in advance). Should you prefer the luxury of civilization, you’ll want to make reservations at one of our fine local hotels. Several hotels have restaurants where you can indulge in a post-concert dinner, drink, or dessert.
