This park has been rated by Trip Advisor users as the number one National Park in America, beating out the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and other great attractions.
Zion is just 45 minutes from St. George and makes a perfect day-trip experience while staying with The INN at St. George. You can make this a half-day for full-day adventure, with opportunities to catch entertainment at the Cinemax theater in Springdale.
The park is 30 miles in length and over 15 miles wide, at its widest point. Elevations range from 4,000 to 8,700 feet, but visitors can experience the park on easy to walk trails, or get more adventurous and hike to the top of some of the well known formations with the park.
How to experience:
From March to October you are required to park you car in Springdale and catch one of the regular shuttles into the park. The shuttle will drop you off at scenic points and other shuttles will come by very regularly, so you can hop on board, and venture to another spot. Pick the trails you'd like to walk (many are paved), and accessible by wheelchair, or by those who do not wish to travel a rougher path. There are restaurants, a grocery store, and other resources available in the town of Springdale.
