People often ask me, 'What To Do In Grand Canyon?'.

The answer depends on how much time that you have. 

I would suggest you drive to the closest visitor center and start from there. 

Keep in mind that 90% of the 5 million annual visitors go to the South Rim but if you have an extra 5 hours to drive around to the North Rim you won't be disappointed.
