Moran Point, Grand Canyon
For more information:

or the National Park Service web page.
The National Park Service collects a $25 per vehicle entrance fee that is good for seven days on both the South and North Rims.
Moran Point is one of just a few locations on th South Rim where you can see the Colorado River deep in the canyon below. From here you can just catch a glimpse of the green-brown water through a gap in the rock.
During our visit, this was one of the more quiet spots (other than some of the small road-side pull offs) where we weren't overwhelmed by other visitors and there was adequate parking.
