One of America's most popular national parks lies in the southwestern corner of Utah. Zion National Park attracts more than four million visitors a year who come to hike, view the beauty of colorful canyons, wade through the park's Virgin River and camp out beneath a luminous night sky, full of stars. There are many natural wonders to experience within the park's 229 square miles of wonder you won't want to miss.
For a full dose of dramatic nature, drive along this road that runs along the canyon floor. You'll be cutting through tall cliff walls on both sides of the road and have fantastic views of some of the park's most famous sites. If you prefer, you can opt to take a shuttle bus run by park employees. Hop off the bus at any scenic site or trailhead and explore on your own. You can also bring a bike along, as there are racks on the bus for storage.
