It's not so much the view, but you're at a higher elevation. Different environment from the south rim....more remote, less bustle, conifer forest, cooler temps, and there's even a nice lodge on the rim, but not ostentatious.

If we're talking about something everyone needs to see... The Murrah building museum in Oklahoma City.

Went there expecting to waste an hour. Came out 3 or 4 hours later completely drained.

Lived in Jersey all my life and never been to any of them.
I live 10 mins from Great Adventure and it was almost 15 years after it opened before I went there for the first time and only been there a total of three times in the 40+ years it's been open.

Never been....The Journal Record building you were in..that is where the MEPS was.

I was in Enid...60 miles as the crow flies, and it sounded like it was right down the road, that loud. I can't say the ground shook, but it felt to me like it does when lightening hits close...you feel it in your chest.

The first reports were a natural gas explosion...

I used to buy vending equipment, pool tables, and juke boxes, from a guy who had a shop in an old store front 3 blocks way....this wasn't a real nice area in OKC....anyway, I saw him several months later, at his new address..and asked him about a table he had...he said he lost it in the building collapse. A lot of the old brick store fronts for blocks around were damaged and some caved in...his was one....I asked him if he wasn't there that day? He said he was, in the front, and the roof came down and he was literally heading out to the sidewalk, away from the blast. He did say he could not hear anything except a hard ringing in his ears for weeks....
