  • Bryce Canyon National Park 800-444-6689 |

    Unlike Zion, where you look up at the cliffs, at Bryce Canyon National Park you look down on miles of exquisitely carved pinnacles and spires. The red, pink and orange colors of the intricately eroded limestone known as “hoodoos” constantly change with the sun making the magical landscape come alive. There is a $25 private vehicle fee to enter

    national parks.

    Zion National Park is one of the most scenic destinations in Southern Utah. Zion is towering sandstone walls and monoliths. It is also rivers, riparian areas, pine forests, sandstone deserts, natural arches, and habitat for an amazing variety of plants and animals. With excellent accommodations, restaurants and shopping facilities are available in the nearby town of Springdale. The park is open all year. There is a

    park entry fee.

    Shuttle service operates from early April through October both in the park and in Springdale. Private vehicles are not allowed on the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive when the shuttle is in operation.

  • Arches National Park 800-635-6622 |

    This red rock wonder is sure to fill you with shock and awe. Arches National Park contains the world’s largest concentration of natural arches— sublime spans of stone that seem to defy gravity and nature. Some are delicate ribbons curving skyward and then twisting back to the earth. Arches aren’t the only attractions here. This is a playground of stone with massive balanced rock, sandstone fins, spires, Marching Men, and other

    geological wonders.
