You can see the spectacular Lower Falls from overlooks on either the North or South Rims. The view from Artist's Point is especially fine.
The Lower Falls plunge over 300 feet. (The Upper Falls, with a drop of 109 feet, are beautiful but less spectacular.) Be sure to allow time to hike along the South Rim and get a view of the Falls.
It's also fun to hike down Uncle Tom's trail (named for "Uncle Tom" Richardson, who took visitors on a rough trail back in 1898). The trail descends nearly to the bottom of the Falls: it has over 300 stairs, but the view is worth the climb. You may find that your kids beat you on the way back up!
