4 Day Grand Canyon Travel Itinerary with Kids – 2024 Guide

    The Grand Canyon is one of the most iconic places in the entire United States and receives visitors from all around the globe. The canyon is 227 miles long, an average of 10 miles wide, and over a mile deep. The Grand Canyon is on many people’s bucket lists and a dream road trip destination.

    Many people visit the Grand Canyon as a day trip, driving from Las Vegas, Flagstaff, Pheonix, or Sedona or by taking the train from Williams, Arizona. For these people, their 1 day Grand Canyon travel itinerary likely includes stopping at a few overlooks, checking out the visitor center and gift shop, and taking a bunch of pictures before leaving again just a few hours later. If you are planning to spend 1 day in Grand Canyon, know that you’ll miss out on a whole lot. We’ll give you a couple of ideas below on how you can spend that limited time, but if you have the option to add some additional time, we’d recommend it. After all, how could you only spend a couple hours at one of the seven natural wonders of the world?

    When we visit a National Park, we plan time to really explore a park and having multiple days in Grand Canyon will give you opportunities to enjoy the park before the majority of the crowds arrive. The tour at sunrise and sunset technique we recommended for Yellowstone National Park will come in handy again here. Additionally, spending 3 or 4 days in Grand Canyon National Park will give us the opportunity to hike down into the canyon (at least a little bit).

    The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is much colder and is only open for the summer season, so it receives much less visitation than the iconic South Rim. Visiting both North and South Rim requires quite a long drive around (it is a large canyon after all!). Most visitors only explore the South Rim of Grand Canyon, so for the purposes of this blog post that is the area we will focus on.

    Where to Stay in Grand Canyon National Park

    If you’re planning a 3 or 4 day Grand Canyon travel itinerary, you’ll probably want to stay inside the park so you can enjoy early mornings or late evenings inside the park and still be close to your lodgings. But as this is a very popular destination, many Grand Canyon hotels and campgrounds are located not far from the remote national park.

    Lodging in Grand Canyon National Park

    If you’d like to stay inside the park, there are a handful of hotels and lodges in Grand Canyon Village. Bright Angel Lodge, Maswik Lodge, El Tovar Hotel, Thunderbird Lodge, and Kachina Lodge are all run by Xanterra Parks and Resorts. Yavapai Lodge and Trailer Village RV Park are both run by Delaware North.

    As with all very popular destinations, you’ll need to book Grand Canyon lodging well in advance. Make sure you’re familiar with what amenities and food options will be available at the time of your trip.

    Camping in Grand Canyon National Park

    The south rim of Grand Canyon has 2 rustic campgrounds and an RV park. Mather Campground in Canyon Village is open year round and offers dry camping sites. Trailer Village RV Park is the only option for camping inside the national park with full hookup sites. Desert View Campground at the east entrance is open seasonally and offers dry camping. Since it’s on the far end of the park, I wouldn’t recommend camping here every night of your visit. Paid shower and laundry are available at Camper Services near Mather Campground.

    Lodging Outside of Grand Canyon National Park

    The gateway village of Tusayan near the south entrance to Grand Canyon has several options for accommodations, including Grand Canyon Plaza Hotel, Best Western Premier Grand Canyon, Red Feather Lodge, and The Grand Hotel at the Grand Canyon. If you don’t mind driving 30-45 minutes into Grand Canyon, the towns of Valle and Red Lake, Arizona are also nearby.

    Camping Outside of Grand Canyon National Park

    There are only a few campground options close to the south entrance of Grand Canyon. Long Jim Loop Camping and Grand Canyon Camper Village are the two closest. Additional options are available in Williams and Flagstaff for those willing to take on a longer drive. If you enjoy boondocking, you can find some dispersed camping areas not too far from the south park entrance.

    Best Time for a Grand Canyon Family Vacation

    The Grand Canyon is impressive year-round, but visiting in winter and summer are very different experiences. Much of the Grand Canyon’s South Rim is open all year round and lots of people visit Grand Canyon in the winter. The North Rim will be closed and some South Rim amenities, facilities, or programs might not be available. The Grand Canyon shuttle bus schedule changes during the spring, summer, and fall seasons, so that might be something to research before scheduling your trip. If you visit Grand Canyon in winter and spring (especially early spring), you should come prepared for icy terrain. Traction devices are highly recommended for any hiking during this time.

    In contrast, visiting in the summer means very high temperatures. Even a day with mild temperatures feels very warm in the sun, and the summer temperatures can be stifling. And remember that temperatures will increase as you hike down into the canyon. You’ll want to complete all your summer hikes by mid-morning and carry plenty of extra water. Any Grand Canyon vacation between April and October could have hot desert days. Be prepared with sun protection as well as plenty of water to stay hydrated.

    Like any place where you’re admiring a vast landscape, bad weather in Grand Canyon will negatively impact your visit. Poor visibility is often caused by winds from the south-west blowing in smog and pollutants from more urban and industrial areas. Winter days tend to have wind from the north, leading to clearer views. If you’re visiting in the summer, staying for a few days will give you more opportunity for a high visibility day.

    Tips for a Grand Canyon Family Vacation

    Take advantage of the Grand Canyon’s shuttle system. Parking lots fill up quickly every morning, so riding the free park shuttles around the park is easy and flexible alternative. The Blue shuttle services the main Grand Canyon Village areas of the park with additional shuttles offering access to trailheads and overlooks on either end.

    Plan more time than you think you need. This goes for the number of days you want to be in the park as well as how long you think a hike or scenic drive will take. We road the Hermit’s Rest shuttle one day, thinking we’d spend about 2 hours on the 80 minute shuttle ride, after accounting for all our stops. But it took us 3.5 hours instead! If we’d been rushed for time or unprepared with lunch, snacks, and food, we would have ended up very cranky instead of having a wonderful day! The Grand Canyon sees a LOT of visitors each day, so there’s a lot of infrastructure in place to handle that, which means everything will take a little bit longer than you expect it to.

    Take snacks and plenty of water with you everywhere, especially if you’re visiting during hot weather. Nothing will ruin a hike or even a long scenic drive like running out of food and water sooner than expected. Water bottle refill stations are available, but they are spread throughout a pretty large park.

    With the high visitation numbers that Grand Canyon National Park sees, the park’s food services can easily be overrun during meal times. If possible, we recommend packing a picnic lunch instead of heading to a grab and go or cafeteria style location mid-day. If not, bring a cooler and purchase your grab and go items well before lunch time. If you’d like a sit-down dinner in the evening, be sure to make reservations for those in advance.

    Visit multiple overlooks and enjoy the way the light changes throughout the day. For me personally, I like the way the canyon looks in the mid-day light. I feel like I can see and appreciate it better without some of it falling into shadow like you’d see in the evenings. But of course, watching the sunrise or sunset is always a beautiful experience too.

    Cell signal in the main Canyon Village area was decent, but don’t expect to have signal on the east and west ends of the park.

    Top 10 Must Do Activities in Grand Canyon National Park:

    1. Enjoy the overlooks along the rim from Hermit’s Rest to Navajo Point – Portions of these roads may only be accessible via the shuttle bus during certain seasons.

    2. Learn more about the canyon – Explore the visitor centers and the Yavapai Geology Museum and attend a ranger program.

    3. Walk part of the Rim Trail – While the viewpoints can get a little crowded, it’s easy to find some space for yourself along the Rim Trail.

    4. Hike down into the canyon, at least a little bit – Ooh Ahh Point on the South Kaibab Trail is a popular choice for an easy to moderate hike into the canyon.

    5. Learn about the first people who lived here – Visit the Hopi House to see Native art pieces and attend one of the cultural demonstrations in the park.

    6. Explore the canyon in alternative ways – There are so many amazing Grand Canyon tours available!

    7. Look for wildlife in the park – You’ll probably see lots of elk and mule deer, but don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the California Condor!

    8. Watch a sunrise or sunset in the park – Rangers recommend Hopi Point, Mohave Point, and Pima Point for sunset. Yaki Point, Navajo Point, and Desert View all have wide views both east and west. Mather Point is a great choice for sunrise.

    9. Check out the view from the Desert Watchtower – Go early to get a free timed ticket. Space is limited.

    10. Check out the various historic buildings in the Grand Canyon Village

    What To Do in Grand Canyon National Park

    Visitor Centers & Yavapai Museum

    Grand Canyon has 2 visitors centers in addition to the Yavapai Geology Museum. You’ll find different exhibits and displays at each, as well as great viewpoints of the canyon.

    Scenic Drives and Overlook Areas

    The scenic overlooks in Grand Canyon National Park are split into a couple of different sections, which you’ll probably want to explore on different days.

    Hermit’s Rest & Hermit Road – For most of the year, this road is accessible only by the Red Line shuttle or by biking or walking. The shuttle loop is an 80 minute ride without counting your stops and you’ll need to wait 10-15 minutes for the next shuttle to arrive every time you disembark. But the overlooks are what you’re here to see, so it’s worth it! Go ahead and plan 3-4 hours (we took 3.5 hours and visited all but 1 stop) and enjoy yourself. Each of the shuttle bus stops is along the Rim Trail, so you also have the option of walking between the overlooks if you’d like. In fact, we’d highly recommend doing that! You can map out stops that are pretty close to each other if you’d like, or plan on walking several miles along the Rim Trail if you have more time. Then you can hop back on the shuttle and ride the rest of the way. Our favorite overlooks on this road were Trailview Overlook (where you can see the Village and Bright Angel Trailhead winding down into the canyon), Mohave Point, and The Abyss.

    Desert View Drive – This road covers the east side of the park with overlooks like Navajo Point and Desert Watchtower. This 22 mile road is not covered by any shuttle buses and is not as highly visited as the other portions of the park, although by the afternoon it can still be quite crowded at the small overlooks. If you’d like to climb the Watchtower for a viewpoint overlooking the canyon, check the hours and plan to arrive early to get a free timed ticket to enter and climb the tower.

    South Kaibab and the Orange Shuttle Line – While this section of the park doesn’t have as many rim overlooks, it is not to be skipped. Riding this entire loop will take 50 minutes with no stops, but since it stops twice at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, it is easy to ride in separate portions. We explored the Geology Museum at Yavapai Point by car one evening, and I rode the Orange Line to Yaki Point on a different day. The South Kaibab Trailhead is also on this loop and we’ll talk more about that in the hiking section below.

    Take a Tour of Grand Canyon

    The two companies that run the lodges and restaurants inside Grand Canyon also offer a variety of Grand Canyon Tours. You can book a guided bus or jeep tour, a scenic train tour, a mule ride into the canyon, a flight-seeing tour, a guided hike, and a multi-day rafting trip on the Colorado River. If you’re looking for a creationist perspective on the Grand Canyon, check out A Different View tours. You can also take a self-guided walking tour of the historic buildings in Grand Canyon Village. Make sure to read up on all your options and what is included in each before choosing a tour.

    Biking Grand Canyon

    Grand Canyon Village has a web of multi-use paths that allow visitors to get around on foot or bicycle. You can also take bikes on Hermit Road in the shuttle bus areas. I’d recommend an ebike to help with the incline. Shuttle buses have a rack on the front that can hold 2 bikes, so you can also take the shuttle to Hermit’s Rest and then return on your bike for a mostly downhill ride. When biking in the shuttle area, be aware that you’ll need to pull over and yield to shuttle buses. Visit the NPS site for more guidance on biking in Grand Canyon.

    The Skywalk At Eagle Point

    While it’s not located inside the boundaries of Grand Canyon National Park, the Skywalk is a popular tourist activity at the Grand Canyon. Walking out on a horseshoe shaped bridge made of glass and getting a clear view straight down into the canyon is likely something you’ll never forget. All personal belongings including cameras and phones must be stored in lockers and booties are required to cover your shoes out on the Skywalk. Professional photographers are on hand to capture memories and these photos can be purchased in addition to your Skywalk ticket. Located on the Hualapai Reservation, the Skywalk is about a 4 hour drive from the south entrance to Grand Canyon National Park and offers its own lodging and RV parking options.

    Cultural Demonstrations

    Check the park’s schedule in the Visitor Center for what time Native cultural demonstrations are taking place at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and Desert View Watchtower.

    Hiking in the Grand Canyon

    Families with small kids might see the list of long and strenuous trails at the Grand Canyon and decide there’s not much accessible to them. But even hiking just a portion of a trail down into the canyon and back up can give you beautiful views and a unique perspective. It’s important to remember that descending into the canyon is faster and less strenuous than climbing back out. As the national park rangers say, ‘Down is optional. Up is mandatory.’

    Bright Angel Trail – 9 miles round trip and over 3000 feet of elevation for those going to Havasupai Gardens. (And that’s not even all the way to the bottom!) Many visitors hike only to the 1.5 mile or 3 mile rest-houses before returning. Hiking to and from the 1.5 mile rest-house is a trail with 1,100 of total ascent. Shaded areas in the upper portion of the trail are often icy into the spring. There’s also a cool tunnel towards the top of this trail, which is a fun trail feature about 1 mile into the trail with an ascent of about 600 feet.

    South Kaibab Trail – This trail has a couple of different stopping points but even the first destination has a big payoff. Many park visitors hike to Ooh Ahh Point for a 1.8 mile hike with about 800 total feet of climbing. The upper portion of the trail is often still icy in the spring. There’s no parking at this trailhead, so this hike is best accessed via shuttle bus. Ryan and our 7 year old did this one morning and really enjoyed it.

    Rim Trail – Enjoy peaceful views of the canyon along this easy (mostly paved) walkway that stretches from Grand Canyon Visitor Center to Hermits Rest. This trail has many access points along the way, so visitors can easily walk just a portion of this trail and utilize the shuttle bus to return. Portions of the trail are accessible.

    Trail of Time – This portion of the Rim Trail features geology information and stretches from Yavapai Point to the Verkamp Visitor Center.

    Since most of Grand Canyon’s hikes descend steeply into the canyon, it’s important to remember that you can turn around at any time, making the hike the length that works best for you. While any trail descending into Grand Canyon is going to be challenging, Bright Angel and South Kaibab are more maintained than other more difficult trail options, so those are the ones that rangers recommend for most visitors. If you have any doubts about your hiking abilities or want information on additional hiking, please talk with the rangers directly.

    What to Bring to Grand Canyon National Park:

    When you buy something using the links in our posts, we may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.

    Water bottles – Water refill stations are available at the Visitor Centers, but you’ll want to bring enough water to get you through most of the day. We like these insulated metal Yeti and Camelbak water bottles. We also carry a Platypus water bladder while hiking to refill our water bottles and we have this hiking backpack for the kids. We also saw many bikers and hikers wearing hydration backpacks as well.

    Groceries – I say this on every national park post. Bring as much food as you can into the national park. If you’re camping or have lodgings that include a fridge and microwave, I would recommend you have everything you expect to need and do all your own meals. If you’d like, make a dinner reservation at one of the park’s restaurants, but remember that no one is coming to the Grand Canyon for the food. We prefer to cook our own meals in the national parks and enjoy restaurants and takeout elsewhere. Like I mentioned above, the Grand Canyon sees a huge amount of visitors every day, so food services are very busy, especially in the middle of the day.

    Hats and sunscreen – Don’t be like me and forget to put on sunscreen for your hike! Having a nice hiking hat with a strap would be really nice to give more shade than a ball cap would. I wish we had all packed long sleeve hiking shirts (or this women’s one), so I didn’t have to worry as much about sun exposure.

    Water-resistant hiking shoes – If you visit in spring like we did, you might find ice or mud on the trails, so sturdy hiking shoes and even traction devices can be helpful. We purchased these small hiking spikes for our shoes and our kids shoes.

    Trekking poles – If you’re planning to hike down into the canyon, trekking poles will help a lot with balance on steep descents and ascents.

    Jackets – The temperature is much lower in the mornings and evenings, so you’ll want to pack layers.

    Your camera – Did you really visit Grand Canyon if you didn’t take a photo at every overlook? After looking back at my photos, my DSLR camera did a MUCH better job capturing the peaks and valleys across the vast expanse of the canyon than my phone did. Here’s a good starter level Canon camera and kit.

    Binoculars – If you’re on the lookout for California Condors or want to get a closer look down into the canyon, binoculars will come in handy.

    Junior Ranger Program

    We love the fun hands on education that comes with the Junior Ranger booklets. You’ll want to pick these up at the beginning of your visit, so you can work on the various pages as you move around the park. Activities include studying the architecture of the buildings around the park, drawing a picture of the canyon, choosing a rock to study, tracking wildlife sightings, and writing poetry about the canyon. My kids especially loved doing the fun Grand Canyon mad lib at the end of the book.

    Grand Canyon Activities Kids Will Love

    Families with Younger Kids:

    Riding the shuttle buses – Why is this my kids’ favorite thing to do everywhere? Something about riding a shuttle bus and looking out the giant windows is way more fun for them than going on a scenic drive in our truck. So not only will the shuttle save you a headache looking for parking, but it will be fun for your little kiddos too!

    The Watchtower – Unfortunately the Watchtower was closed the day we drove down to Desert View, so we were all bummed to miss out on this one. We soothed our disappointment with ice cream from the gift shop nearby.

    Watch the train come in – The train from Williams comes in daily (check their schedule to find out what time). Hang out near the train station shuttle stop to watch it arrive or depart.

    Seeing the mule barn – You’ll find a mule barn located right next to the road in Grand Canyon Village, so a loop on the blue line shuttle will take you right past them. They’ll be out the left side window if your kids want to give them a wave.

    Climbing on rocks – No matter where we are, my kids are always trying to climb on rocks. Obviously at the Grand Canyon, you’ll often be close to the steep drop-off of the canyon, so we were very clear with our children where and when they were NOT allowed to climb on rocks.

    Families with Older Kids and Teens:

    If our kids were in upper elementary or teens, I’d be looking into the overnight mule rides into the canyon or a helicopter ride over the canyon. If we had teens who loved to hike, we’d be researching a 4-5 day rim to rim hike. Obviously, that’s a bit more than many families will be wanting for their Grand Canyon vacation, but it would be a very memorable trip!

    How to Plan Your 4 Day Grand Canyon Family Vacation

    Many people plan only 1 day to visit the Grand Canyon, but as I said above, weather can have a huge impact on visibility across the canyon (and your photos!), so we recommend planning a long weekend at Grand Canyon National Park.

    4 Day Grand Canyon Travel Itinerary

    On day 1 of your 4 day Grand Canyon family vacation, you’ll want to start at the visitor center. Look through the maps, talk to the rangers, pick up Junior Ranger books, and see how you need to adjust your game plan based on what is open in the park at the time. Choose a cultural demonstration and ranger talk to attend and mark those on your schedule. Spend the rest of the morning checking out the Visitor Center exhibits and looking at the overlooks in the main park areas, from Mather Point to Bright Angel Lodge. If you have time, this is a great area to walk part of the Rim Trail. In the afternoon, drive out to Desert Watchtower. There are several overlooks along this road. Moran Point and Desert View were two of my favorites. Finish the day watching the sunset at an overlook of your choice.

    On day 2 of your Grand Canyon travel itinerary, bike or ride the shuttle on Hermit’s Road. You’ll want to get an early start for this as the shuttle starts to get crowded. We recommend planning 3-4 hours and taking a picnic lunch. If you’re biking, you’ll want to plan additional time. In the afternoon, check out the historic buildings in the Grand Canyon Village or ride the Orange Shuttle line to Yaki point and the other viewpoints on that route.

    For the 3rd day of your Grand Canyon family vacation, consider booking a tour. You’ll want to plan well in advance as tours book up quickly. You’ve spent a couple of days enjoying the viewpoints. Taking a tour is a great way to hear more about the history of the people who’ve lived here over the centuries.

    On your final day in Grand Canyon, spend the morning doing a little hiking. Hike to Ooh Ahh Point on the South Kaibab Trail or the 1.5 mile rest house on the Bright Angel Trail, which requires more of an ascent. Bonus points enjoying the sunrise at the viewpoint before starting the trail. Hiking first thing in the morning will give you cooler temperatures and less crowded trails and make it easier to finish before lunch. Celebrate your hard work with a restaurant reservation to enjoy a leisurely meal.

    1 Day Grand Canyon Travel Itinerary

    If you’re making a stop at the Grand Canyon as part of a longer Arizona road trip or you’re visiting Grand Canyon via the train, you might find yourself with only a few hours to hit the highlights of the park. Here’s what to do in Grand Canyon to make the most of your limited time:

    If you have an entire day in Grand Canyon, take a few hours of that to see the overlooks on Hermit Road. Even if you only have time to go halfway, it’s still worth it! Take the shuttle to Mohave Point, stopping at Trailview Overlook, Hopi Point, and Mohave Point if that’s all you have time for.

    With your remaining time, prioritize one activity from the following: Visitor Center exhibits, Junior Ranger books, Yaki Point on the Orange shuttle line, historic Grand Canyon Village, or walking the Rim Trail.

    If it works with the rest of your Arizona road trip, we’d highly recommend either entering or exiting Grand Canyon from the east entrance. The views out this way are gorgeous, as you pass by Lee Canyon and the Little Colorado River. And while at Grand Canyon, you’ll have the option to stop at Desert Watchtower on your way in or out of the park. (We’d recommend stopping at Moran too if you can only pick 1 other stop!)

    Our #1 tip for only spending a couple of hours at the Grand Canyon is to get to as many overlooks as possible. Seeing it from multiple perspectives and viewpoints is the best way to give yourself a sense of how vast the canyon truly is.

    2 Day Grand Canyon Travel Itinerary

    With two days in Grand Canyon National Park, I would follow days 1 and 2 in our 4 day Grand Canyon Itinerary to cover all 3 main areas of the park. If you want to do some hiking on just a 2 day visit, plan to spend less time getting your bearings in the park on day 1. I’d recommend switching things around and exploring Hermit Road on day 1. Then on day 2, start with your hike and spend the afternoon driving out to Desert View.

    5+ Day Grand Canyon Travel Itinerary

    If you have 5 days in Grand Canyon, you should book at least 1 special tour, maybe even 2. Or plan to commit a full day to a longer hike.

    What Else To Do on your Arizona Road Trip?

    If you have the time, there are lots of other amazing spots within a day’s drive of the Grand Canyon. Consider building an Arizona road trip with some of these stops:

    Petrified Forest National Park – Take a detour on your way across Arizona’s Route 40 to drive past Painted Desert viewpoints and stop for a walk among colorful petrified tree trunks.

    Route 66 – Historic Route 66 follows Route 40 across Arizona. Along the way, you can make stops at Petrified Forest National Park, the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook, Canyon Diablo ghost town, and Meteor Crater Natural Landmark. The route also goes through Flagstaff and Williams, which both have several historic stops.

    Meteor Crater Natural Landmark – This ancient impact crater spans 3,900 feet across and is 560 feet deep. On site, visitors can enjoy an interpretive center, a film about the crater, and a gift shop in addition to viewing the giant crater from a platform.

    Sedona – Visit Cathedral Rock, Airport Mesa, Devil’s Bridge, or Red Rock State Park. Enjoy the scenic drive through Oak Creek Canyon between Flagstaff and Sedona.

    Flagstaff – Check out the Arizona Snowbowl, Wupatki National Monument, or Riordan Mansion.

    Tucson – If you don’t mind driving a few hours south, add on a visit to Tucson and Saguaro National Park.

    Lee’s Ferry – This former homesteading site now offers rafting trips on the Colorado River. Check out the Historic Navajo pedestrian bridge too.

    Horseshoe Bend – A famous viewpoint of the Colorado River.

    Antelope Canyon – Book a slot canyon tour with a Navajo guide and marvel at the way the light plays on the sandstone canyon walls.

    Lake Powell – Take a scenic boat ride on Lake Powell to Rainbow Bridge National Monument.

    Zion National Park – Enjoy Antelope Canyon or Lee’s Ferry and then continue north into Utah to visit this stunning national park.

    Monument Valley – This Navajo Tribal Park has a 17 mile scenic drive loop with views of buttes and other rock formations.

    Four Corners Monument – Standing in four states at once makes for a fun pit stop for your Arizona family road trip!
