    Light Crowds?

    Short Lines?

    Was there Sunday, May 7, 2017. Crowds were at about medium. Moderately heavy car traffic in Grand Canyon Village and in Tusayan. Overlooks were somewhat crowded. Certainly not a “ghost town” by any stretch.

    Get there as early as you can (before sunrise). It gets crowded by noon.
