I'm hoping to get a great view of the sunrise at the Grand Canyon. I'll be staying in Williams, and will be there the first weekend of September. Where is generally (on the South Rim) considered to a great view of sunrise and / or sunset? I understand the park is open 24 hours a day at the South Rim.
A few years ago I stayed the night at Tusayan, about 5-10 miles south of the South Rim of the canyon. There are several standard motel chains and a few restaurants there. I then got up early to drive up to Grand Canyon Village. I can't say if that's the best view, but you can see the photo I captured here and judge for yourself. I can certainly say that it was an impressive experience in person. It looks like the National Park Service list sunrise/sunset times.
