Road tripped to these incredible spots in one weekend! They are all amazing, but I cannot wait to get back to Zion National Park. This is easy to do in three days, but more time would allow more time at Zion and to see Bryce Canyon. Map of our route:
TOP TRAVEL TIPS:
*For the drive, we stayed one night at the North Rim West Cabins, then one night in Kanab, which has several hotel options.
GRAND CANYON NORTH RIM:
*Stay in the Western Cabins, they are worth it and are close to the Bright Angel Trail.
*There are far fewer view points to drive to on the North Rim than the South Rim, but give yourself time because they are very spread out.
*It was almost too hot here, and there is over 1 mile hiking.
*There’s not too much to do here other than pictures.
Go To: Navajonationparks.org to see every Antelope Canyon Tour
*There are several options for Antelope Canyon, but I HIGHLY RECOMMEND: Antelope Canyon X Taadidiin Tours (Hiking Tour). It is the cheapest ($38) and they do not rush you. The experience was amazing! For online reservations (were not needed for us):
ZION NATIONAL PARK:
*Stay at the lodge- it makes it so you don’t have to wait in the long bus line in the morning.
*I would stay for at least 3 nights. You wont want to leave.
*Angel’s Landing is not that strenuous or difficult, or even extreme, or scary. It’s all pretty over hyped, but the view from the top is incredible.
