While we have been to the Grand Canyon a few times we had never been to the hard to get North Rim. There is a saying, go to the South Rim first, because when you go to the North Rim you will never go back to the South Rim!
That saying is true – similar fantastic views with (literally) 10% of the people. Nice and quiet.
There are minimal amenities, but that is ok, there is a place to eat and sleep (if you are lucky – which we were).
There are more views of the side canyons and they connect to the main canyon, adding interesting views.
