Bryce Canyon City, sometimes shown as Bryce on maps, is a town in Garfield County, Utah, United States, adjacent to Bryce Canyon National Park. The town, formerly known as "Ruby's Inn", was officially incorporated on July 23, 2007 under a short-lived state law. The population was 198 at the 2010 census.GeographyBryce Canyon City is located some east of Panguitch, just outside the park entrance at the northwest corner of Bryce Canyon National Park, about north of the park's visitor center. The town lies alongside Utah State Route 63, near the park's popular Sunset Point. The town limits extend north to Utah State Route 12 at the north end of Route 63.ClimateThe climate in this area has mild differences between highs and lows, and there is adequate rainfall year-round. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Bryce has a marine west coast climate, abbreviated "Cfb" on climate maps.HistoryReuben C. "Ruby" Syrett built a lodge and cabins at this location in 1916, when the promotion of Bryce Canyon for tourism was just beginning. Syrett's business grew along with the park's popularity, particularly once it was made a National Park in 1928. Ruby's Inn became an important junction; its travelers' services developed into a small community. Syrett donated land to the state for construction of a road (now Utah State Route 63), strategically placing Ruby's Inn right at the entrance to the park.
