We took the Grand Canyon Railroad to the park, our ticket also paid for park entrance fees. Also, the tour guides know the best spots for great pictures and will happily take you picture for you (free of charge).
With four kids ranging in age from 7 to 11, we did not hike into the canyon, but that will be one of the trips to be added for later years. Nevertheless, there are plenty of trails to explore at the South Rim with amazing vistas when you stop and rest. Keep a close eye on the edge, it is a steep drop. The kids enjoyed tossing snow balls into the canyon.
I was amazed at the temperature difference. We did not expect snow to be on the ground during spring break. Bring cool weather clothes as it is cooler on the rim.
The hotel and gift shop were nice spots to relax and browse around. The gift shop was packed with people and shelves, so be careful bumping into things while there.

One of the useful features of the shuttle system is that you can get off and on at any of the locations. A stroll along the rim trail is very pleasant, but if your feet get tired you just head to the nearest shuttle stop and catch a ride for awhile. The shuttle is an excellent way to see much of the park. It is the ONLY way to see part of the park--due to high congestions, the western most portion of the paved road on the south rim is closed to public vehicles.
This closure has a bonus that might not have been anticipated: quiet. Without the road noise the canyon is extremely peaceful.
