Zion National Park attracts over three million tourists from all over the world ever year wishing to see and experience this spectacular park. However, there is much more here than just the scenery – albeit the main attraction – here that beckons people to come. They also come to play. Zion National Park is so great that simply stopping on the side of the road to take in the view is not sufficient – action is required.
For instance, many people enjoy hiking the narrows to explore slot canyons in the park. Some go a step further by actually climbing in these canyons – an activity called canyoneering. The park is home to many different species of fauna. Large predator cats – like cougars – live in the park but are seldom seen.
Some of the more commonly seen animals are desert cottontail rabbits, squirrels, lizards, frogs, and members of 250 species of birds like the American dipper and black-headed grosbeak. Other attractions here include Ghost towns, Museums, Scenic drives (expertly guided tours are easily arranged allowing you to fully experience this fascinating place), skiing, snowmobiling and a wealth of family activities, all this coupled with the fantastic accommodation and cuisine that is to be found here makes for a truly memorable holiday that will be fun for all the family.
