length of stay in bryce

hi, have most of my trip planned and booked, driving from sfc to lv with stops on the way .í have 4 nights to book, and was thinking 2 in bryce 2 in page before we go onto mv. but is it worth staying for 4 nights in bryce and missing page or do both for 2 nights each.

thanks

Two in Bryce and two in Page is sufficient. Bryce is very efficient and, actually, one night is meaningful there. What's your planned route? While you can take I-80 and I-15, the route across the Nevada desert on US50 is quite fascinating.

Have fun.

Give Bryce one night and divide the other 3 between Page and Zion. If you want to do any water activity at Page you'll need 2 nights there. One is OK at Zion, two is better.

definitely will go to zion after looking into it, can we do the scenic drive in may, i see cars are excluded from the park during summer months. we particularly want to see horeshoe bend nr page, not bothered about water sports.

so if we leave beatty, to bryce 1 night , zion 2 nights would we need to stay over in page to see the scenery or could we see it just as well driving to mv. ?also if i am going to go to yosemite, bryce canyon, dv, bryce canyon, zion np, mv, gc , are they all national parks that require passes, ? while we were in canada we bougt one pass that covered us for all the parks ?

thanks

You can buy the America the Beautiful pass at $ 80,-- at the entrance of your first NP. It also covers many more places like Glen Canyon in Page and many National Monuments. Beatty to Zion will be an 4.5 hours drive and you'll lose one hour for timedifference. To get into Zion's main canyon you'll have to take the shuttle from the visitor center in may but a drive through via ut9 already is very scenic. Do Zion before Bryce. Monument Valley is not included in the pass. You'll have to pay $ 5,-- pppd.

The shuttle tour up and back down the canyon at Zion will take about 2 hours. Don't skip it. Then drive RT 9 up through East Zion and on to Bryce.

If you only are doing Antelope Canyon (there are 2, Upper and Lower) and Horseshoe bend in Page, one night will be enough. You'll gain one hour between Bryce and Page (lose one hour between Page and MV and gain one hour to GC, complicated? Yes!
