United States of America Tourist Traps: 44 reviews and 24 photos
solitude at the Grand Canyon? yup
Everyone has their own style of traveling and certainly everyone has different expectations about what they want to see and do in a particular place. One person just has to do that carriage ride around Central Park in NYC and another snickers at the absurdity of paying so much when a walk would accomplish "the same thing." I've certainly spent my life in the latter category but if everyone did the same thing, we'd all be traveling in a very crowded place with the result that we would all be subjected to a huge tourist trap.
Unique Suggestions: As with most things in life, the earlier you get somewhere, the less crowded it is. Plain and simple: most people want to sleep in when on vacation so if you get up early, you'll have even the most crowded places sometimes all to yourself.
Fun Alternatives: Look for a spot perhaps a little bit away from the "main" viewing area. Even in the Grand Canyon, just a few hundred yards can mean the difference between a scrum and a relatively peaceful sunset.
