Best time to visit Grand Canyon

When is the best time to visit Grand Canyon?

Spring (March-May)

Spring and fall (the “shoulder seasons”) are often considered the best times of year to visit the Grand Canyon because daytime temperatures are typically lower and crowds are generally thinner

Summer (May-August)

Summer is the most well-liked season to visit the Grand Canyon because school is out. As a result, it's also the hottest and busiest time of year.

Autumn (September-November)

Autumn, like spring, ushers in fewer people and more comfortable temperatures

Winter (December-February)

Winter weather can cause delays and obstruct views, but with the fewest visitors and the possibility of a snow-covered Canyon, winter can be one of the most peaceful and picturesque times to visit.
