When? I would choose 89A except in the dead of winter. There is no wrong answer though. Both routes are scenic and unique.

How much time do you have?

If you want to see Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam, take Hwy89.

If you want to see Navajo Bridge, Lees Ferry and the Colorado River up close, Jacob Lake and the Fevre Overlook of the Grand Staircase, take 89alt.

You also have the option of taking Hwy9 thru Zion, or taking 59/389 thru the AZ strip on into Hurricane and St George.
