Tips for Visiting the Grand Canyon in the Spring
By Jessica F, March 2013
Spring is a great time to visit the Grand Canyon.You’ll get to avoid the heavy crowds and intense heat that exist during the summer months, as well as the risks involved with visiting in winter, like road closures, bitter cold and storms. During spring, visitors enjoy average daytime highs between 55-65º F, with nighttime lows getting down to 25-35º F. In the lower canyons, temperatures are often 20º F higher. Just remember to bring some warm clothes and layer so you’re always prepared for unpredictable weather.
