The Zion National Park Area

The Zion National Park Area Travel Guide

Pack a picnic (sans alcohol) for an alfresco concert at this 2,000-seat amphitheater, surrounded by the cliffs of Zion National Park.

During late spring and summer, crowds are a fact of life here, but these guides can steer you through the lesser-known hikes.

Red Mountain Spa has added 12 residential villas (from $540,000) to its 55-acre crimson desert setting for those who find a week of pampering is just not enough.

Between July and October, the city hosts the Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival; check out a production in the town’s authentic replica of the Globe Theatre (among other venues).

Visit the gorgeous 2,000-foot-deep gorge.

Head to Zion National Park’s Visitor Center at the Zion Canyons entrance, where you can get oriented, and board the shuttle that goes into the stunning sandstone rock canyons.
