      Approaching the Grand Canyon National Park's south rim from the east on Arizona State Highway 64, the Watchtower offers the first opportunity to view the canyon with wide open views of the Colorado river. The tower is a National Historic Landmark.

      If you go:
      Visit the store in the tower and admire the murals by local Hopi artists. Climb the stairs to the observation decks and enjoy the magnificent views of the canyon.
