Cant wait to return, as the view was breathtaking!!! Do a little homework so you know how this place was found and the amazing process of the National Park designation.

This spot is very good for astrophotography. The arm of the milky way is easily visible and there is almost no light pollution. I am a beginner though so didn't really get good pics. I don't even the proper equipments, but I can tell it will be a feast for pro astrophotographers.

One of the busiest spots in Bryce Canyon, but well worth waiting for parking. The views are spectacular. If you want to see the sunset be sure to get there well before the actual sunset time as you are looking east and not at the setting sun.

We took the rim walk whilst some of our party did the Navajo loop walk. Beautiful views at this point and worth the short walk to get there

Whilst it may be busy there is plenty of room at Sunset Point to watch the changing shadows of the Hoodoos as the sun descends. The Hoodoos are spectacular as they are ever changing.

This in one of the best view points in the park. Parking is close. It is also one of the longest view points and visitors should walk the entire length because the view changes so much in such a short distance.

Very enjoyable, must see scenery. I recommend visiting it during the sunlight; and spend sunset time at Inspiration Point or Bryce Point.

If you cannot hike at this elevation, this overlook gives you at least 180 degrees of awesome views.

There are a few gorgeous lookout points, but Sunset point has beautiful hoodoos and good trails, such as Navajo Loop that start there. It's a good starting point to walk along the rim from Sunset to Sunrise Points too.
