Zion National Park Vacation: 3 Things to Consider Before Booking
The year 2017 is practically halfway over and we know that a lot of you forgot that one of your new year’s resolutions was to visit Zion. You still have time! A Zion National Park vacation is a great choice for lots of different reasons. We want to help you plan your vacation so let us impart to you a few things to remember when you are making your plans to stay near Zion.
Different seasons, different experiences
If you come in the summer, you will be coming during the time of the year that is the busiest. But you probably already knew that. Honestly, it’s not really that big of a deal because there are enough shuttles, hotels, and restaurants to accommodate everyone, but yes, you may have some wait time during your adventures. We want to remind you that coming to the Park during the winter months and shoulder season – November through February, give or take – can be a great alternative if you are one of those people who don’t want throngs of people all around you and crowded restaurants and hotel hot tubs full of people. We have learned that there a lot of people out there who think that there’s snow all over the ground in Zion during the winter be- cause, well, it’s Utah, right? Wrong! This is just not the case. Every once in a while it will snow, but it almost never sticks. The winter months are much less busy and allow for a crowd-less vacation experience if that’s what you’re after.
Stay for at least two nights
Let’s be honest. Any vacation that lasts only one day leaves you longing and wish- ing for more. One day is just never enough no matter where you go on a vacation. Zion is no exception to that rule. Do everything that you can to arrange a multiple night stay in Zion when planning your trip here. Only one day will be amazing, don’t get me wrong, but the last thing we want is for you to leave feeling unfulfilled and unsatisfied. There are so many experiences to be had in Springdale and we want you to get a real taste of what the area has to offer.
Hour-by-hour itinerary or relax?
The world knows Zion as a place for the outdoor enthusiasts, the hikers, the bikers, the climbers, etc. Don’t forget that Zion is also a place for true relaxation, peace and quiet, and just peaceful unwinding amidst grandiose red cliffs and lush vegetation. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the everyday grind and want to just get away to somewhere “away from it all” and reset, this is the place to do that. You don’t have to be an adrenaline junkie to enjoy Zion.
We know that remembering these three bits of information will help you to organize the best and most fulfilling Zion National Park and Springdale vacation possible. Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall, Zion has something for everyone and anyone seeking virtually any kind of vacation or trip. If you’ve never been here before, boy are you in for a treat! And if you have been here before, we’ve got seconds and thirds ready and waiting for you! Let Zion National Park be the place you make some of your most cherished memories this new year. We can’t wait to see you!
