Towering cliffs of red, white, and pink Navajo sandstone, stream-carved slot canyons, and big blue sky all characterize Zion National Park.

Atlanta to Zion National Park is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus, train, and car. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Atlanta to Zion National Park due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Atlanta in June since evenings lows in Zion National Park dip to 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Bryce Canyon National Park.
