North Rim, Grand Canyon

The North Rim is a quieter way to see the Grand Canyon. Smaller crowds and more of a natural experience welcome you. While the facilities are closed from mid-October to mid-May, the Cliff Dwellers Lodge is open year-round. In the summer, be sure to reserve your lodging at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge early.

There is a fee to enter the North Rim. You may use a Grand Canyon National Park Pass or a National Parks Pass.

South Rim, Grand Canyon

The most developed area of Grand Canyon National Park, the South Rim offers amenities such as bus service, hotels and water stations, but is also more crowded than the North Rim. Scenic highlights include Pipe Creek Vista and Yavapai Point.

Use a Grand Canyon National Park Pass or a National Parks Pass.

Zion National Park

With beautiful canyons and geological structures, there are plentiful places to experience firsthand. Take a scenic drive through the park in your own vehicle or on a free shuttle. If you are looking for solitude and a quiet place to contemplate nature, take a day to visit Zion.

You may purchase a pass at the gate or use a National Parks Pass.

Bryce Canyon

Hoodoos are a tall, thin spire of rock that protrude from the bottom of an arid drainage basin or badland. They generally form the within sedimentary rock and volcanic rock formations that dot Bryce Canyon, a great place to hike, bike or camp. There are several programs geared to star gazing at night. Because there is so much diversity in the landscape, sunrises and sunsets are beautiful.

What people are saying


Great service and local boat captains. Troy was great! They can take you up to 15 miles up river to kayak back down and any distance in between. It’s a very unique experience.
