Today mark’s the beginning of another exciting year of travel in the Bryce Canyon Country region.   We encourage you to plan a multiple day experience in this are so you can capture the true beauty and spirit of America’s most spectacular scenic destination. People are coming to realize that there is no place in the world that looks quite like Bryce Canyon.   When you combine Bryce with nearby attractions like the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Kodachrome Basin State Park and Scenic Byway 12, you have a destination that will keep you enthralled for days and weeks.   We realize you may only have so much time for a vacation, but we invite you to make this region the focus of your vacation in 2011.

When to come: Bryce Canyon National Park is open year round, and some of the best times to hike in the Grand Staircase are in the winter.    The further you move down the Hole In The Rock road, the lower you go in elevation, and this means the temperatures become warmer.   Daytime in the Grand Staircase, even in winter, can be very temperate.   Just pay attention to the weather and conditions of any road, and you may have a wonderful winter time visit in our region.   Of course any other time of year is a good time to be in the Bryce Canyon region.

How to get here: If you are flying to Bryce Canyon in 2011, there are two gateway cities that are not too far away.   Las Vegas and Salt Lake City are equally about a four-hour drive from Bryce Canyon National Park.   Either way you come, you’ll enjoy the scenic drives to and from this region.    If you are driving, then the I-15 and I-70 corridors along with Highway 89 and Scenic Byway 12 will be the important roads for your to use.  Visit this page on our web-site to learn more about traveling to the Bryce Canyon National Park region.
