      Zion- Page-Bryce

      by Footloose_Rimi Online Now Aug 13, 2016 at 10:48 PM

      We are planning to take a road trip from Vegas to Zion- Page- Bryce and back to Vegas in 4 days. Do you think it's doable? The itinerary is like this:
      29 Sep- from Vegas to Zion, night stay in Zion
      30 Sep- Explore Zion
      01 Oct- Drive from Zion to Page early morning, do both the upper and lower Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend and half day rafting on Colorado River. Night stay in Page.
      02 Oct- Start for Bryce early in the morning and explore Bryce. Night stay in Bryce.
      03 Oct- Back to Vegas.
      Can anybody suggest if this itinerary is being a little too much of driving and are we being over ambitious about the tour? What alternate plan can be done with these places without increasing the number of days?
      Thanks in advance for the tips/ advises/ suggestions.

      We're thinking about spending the holidays in Utah National parks. Does anyone have advice around road conditions, particularly with an RV? Are some parks more accessible than others?

    • Vegas to Bryce

      by rachelfromabroad Online Now Apr 21, 2013 at 2:27 AM

      I am planning an overnight trip from Las Vegas to Bryce Canyon in early June. I already booked the lodging in Bryce Canyon for the night. I am making the trip with my elderly mother and am the only driver. I am arriving from overseas to take her to Bryce and Zion and a couple of days in Vegas. A friend heard that I was planning to drive on my own and contacted me that she thought it wasnt a good idea. she said I could drive for hours and not see another car on the road and when she did it years ago, there was no cell reception for good parts of the way. I was planning on driving from Vegas to Bryce, sleeping over and then seeing Zion the next day on the way back from Vegas. should I re-think this and take an organized tour. I am a good driver.

      Road Conditions in March around Bryce Canyon and Southern Utah

      by Joseph69 Online Now Jan 6, 2013 at 9:08 PM

      I have booked a car (convertible, do it in "style" without the heat) and will be driving from LA, then to Las Vegas, Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP, Monument Valley NP, Grand Canyon NP and back to Las Vegas.

      I noticed to get to Monument Valley from Bryce Canyon, I can take a scenic route via the road UT-12 and Highway 95 South via Escalante and Boulder. Of course, we will stop somewhere overnight so we're not rushed.

      I cannot find any information if roads are closed during the colder months (as opposed to Yosemite NP in California, where many roads are announced closed and I adjusted my plans). It appears not much precipitation develops around southern Utah as opposed to other high country areas in the World.

      Is it safe to drive in March?

      Your assistance is appreciated.

    • North Rim Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion then on to Yosemite and SF

      by abwd1698 Online Now May 16, 2012 at 6:31 AM

      My husband and I are planning a trip in early September, starting in Vegas and taking in the Grand Canyon (probably north rim), Zion, Bryce, then on to Yosemite and ending in San Francisco. I don't want to spend all my time in the car driving past sites, so wondered what a good time frame would be to really see these 4 national parks. Also, is it advisable to make hotel reservations ahead of time for outside the park, or do we just wing it and find a place when we decide where we want to be? OR, would making reservations in a town that is within driving distance of GC, Zion and Bryce be the best way to go and then do day trips to whichever park we want to visit? I am allowing us about 2 weeks before we get to SF to take in these 4 parks.

    • Vegas, Bryce, and Zion

      by rotini Online Now Jul 25, 2010 at 8:18 AM

      Okay, I have read about Bryce and Zion National Parks. I will be home based at the Grand Chateau Marriott in Vegas. I think I can scoot back and forth to Zion. I guess the question I have is, can I go to Bryce and see enough in one day, including the sunset, and then head back to Vegas? Or should I plan on staying in Bryce overnight and then maybe hitting Zion on the way back? Also is Cedar Breaks worth a trip while heading to Zion? And would going to Zion and Bryce for a two day trip be the best bet?
      Just looking for itineraries from those of you who have made Vegas the home base. As you may know the Grand Chateau is grand; I have a three bedroom unit and will want to put stakes down there.
      Any advice is appreciated. I have read other postings from those who are more "on the road" than I might be.

      Weather in September in Vegas and Canyons? Is it very hot still?

      And, if any of you have stayed at Grand Chateau in a three bedroom, how easy would it be to rent out the one bedroom? It is separate and full functioning with kitchen. September 17-24 are dates. I have never even considered this option before and am not sure where to start.

      We will be spending 2 days in Utah, with our base in Tropic UT- nestled between Bryce & Zion parks. We will reach Tropic bet 6-7 PM & we have the whole day next day followed by few hours in the morning the day after. My wife has bad knees and cant walk for long. I want to make best use of the time to see all the good stuff.

      We will be driving down from Jackson Hole and I presume we could see some enchanting stuff on our way. What is the best route from Jackson Hole to go thru the scenic spots.

      What is the best way to see both the parks or is it better to focus on only one & if yes, which one. Can we see all the places just driving.

      I appreciate any & all tips, suggestions and links to Information sites.
