In a state with five of the country's most famous national parks, Zion is far and away the most popular -with more than 2.6 million visitors annually.
Known for its soaring sandstone walls and narrow, winding canyons, Zion has something for everyone. Whether you prefer to stick to the pavement, take a hike, shoot photos, or even rock climb, you can find plenty to do inside the park's boundaries.
This guide's 102 entries and 330+ photos cover the park inside and out: Activities, lodging and camping, dining, guide services, and gear shops.
Get outside of the park proper and check out a sampling of other attractions: nearby state and national parks, trails, dining. For those who want to check out the region's many other attractions.
If you want to expand your experience beyond visitors centers and brochures, Zion National Park Expanded lets you get really creative -even detailing opportunities for horseback riding and skydiving.
