Towering cliffs of red, white, and pink Navajo sandstone, stream-carved slot canyons, and big blue sky all characterize Zion National Park.
Take a break from the city and head to Brian Head Resort and Wolf Creek Golf Club. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Queen's Garden Trail and Temple of Sinawava Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Bryce Canyon National Park (Rim Trail & Farview Point) and Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery (in Mesquite). And it doesn't end there: explore the stunning scenery at Hidden Canyon, hike along Angel's Landing, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Timber Creek Overlook Trail.
