GC Hiking: From the top

So let me begin my three part apology for possibly posting in the wrong forum, not asking a directly river related question, and running over that one yellow speed bump in the middle of the river last summer by saying that I just think you all are the greatest and I love what you've done with the place.

Other two parts to follow.

QUESTION: Life-changing rim hikes? I will be making a breif foray into the southwest, specifically the region of the Grand Canyon in March. I will not be boating. I am too broke for that this year. I do have a 'car,' however, and can access either rim.

I was really hoping to find out from all you experts about some possible 'top down' hikes that get me off the beaten path. This will be my first trip to that corner of the world, so any mind-blowing suggestions would be hugely appreciated.
Overnights may be a possibility, but if there are cool hikes that don't go all the way to the bottom, I would love to hear about those as well.

Also- if there is a thread directly related to this question already, please include that faux pas in the above apology and link me.

I was looking into this b/c I had a friend who wanted to hike down into the canyon and hang out with my crew on a layover day on our trip. I found this website to be pretty helpful- you can check out some of the rapids (Hance, Hermit, Lava) if you're interested in doing an overnight and going all the way down to the river:
