The rock formations and the sheer magnitude of the area is inspiring. What a day trip out of vegas. About 2.3 hour drive but it's worth it.

Luckily, we were in the Canyon mid-week in November so we were free to drive our own car in the canyon. There were plenty of parking places. However, it was less crowded in the early morning hours than in the afternoon. All the special viewpoints are well-marked.

It was absolutely beautiful. Great weather and easy driving. I also hiked the Narrows which was totally worth it. I am so glad that I went.

I wish we had more time than just an afternoon. We didn't have time to do any hiking, but still had a fabulous time on the scenic drive. I wish some of the other drivers wouldn't be so impatient. It is a tourist attraction and a curvy road - people drive slow to take pictures and the RV's can't take... More

Of all the parks, Yellowstone is #1, of course, but Zion is a close 2nd. This fall we saw a dozen bighorn and a variety of other wildlife. Loved my second visit to Zion. Looking forward to coming back again some day!

All we had time to do in Zion was take the scenic drive, as we only had an afternoon and we were staying in Kanab. It was beautiful; we stopped many times to take photos. The tunnels were interesting. We found out how they know when to let cars from the other side start through; we were given a baton... More

Our family spent 4 days there with our daughters, then 14 and 12. We stayed in one of the quaint cabins inside the park and breakfasted at the main lodge. It was perfect. Our cabin was homey and comfey with a small gas fire and porch complete with rocker. The surroundings were stunning and the breakfasts delicious. WIth no TV... More

Very scenic, well worth the time and if you can, try the Overlook Trail. I was on it twice and both times I got to see big horn sheep.

This was a pleasant drive and much better being able to drive it yourself, however it was rather busy even for November on a weekday so we only stopped a few places and decided not to hike with that many people around. We did go down to the water and walk all in the open field and enjoyed the fall... More
