If you would a day to just ride the Zion shuttle take the scenic route and you can avoid driving from location to location. You can get on and off the shuttle at designated stops to take pictures, enjoy the view, take a hike. The scenic route is quite unique in the variety off scenes that you will see. You might spot some mule deer or wild turkeys. Listen to the narration on each shuttle to discover more about the unique features of Zion. Stop at the museum to catch a movie about Zion. Stop at the gift store before you leave. Come early to avoid the crowds.

Dear friends,
You need to see it yourself. I’m so blessed that my husband is driving and taking us everywhere.
We kept stopping for taking pictures.
I wish to see it again and again.
It is so calming to the mind, I promise you.

By taking the free shuttle you can see and stop at the many places along the canyon in Zion. You'd spend hours..days here...I just was here for 2 days and just wasn't able to see it all.

Angels Landing, the Narrows, Weeping Rock..are among the famous stops...

Unless you take the bus. There is not much of a scenic route you can traverse on your own. Be prepared to sit on a crowded bus.

According to the National Parks Service website, "From March through November, access to the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive is by free shuttle bus only. Private vehicles are allowed to access the Scenic Drive only when the Shuttle System is not in operation" (if you're staying within the canyon, you are allowed to drive to the lodge/cabins, otherwise you have to park at the visitor center at the South Entrance and take the shuttle in). However, a lot of people consider the entire drive from the East Entrance through the park tunnel and to the South Entrance (which you can use your own car for) all a part of the drive instead of what is just at the bottom of the canyon.

I actually visited in March 2018 and got to see snow within the park - this just added to the already awe-inspiring views. Thank goodness I was driving out of the park (from Springdale, through the tunnel and out the East Entrance) early on a Sunday morning so I could go really slow in order to take everything in.
