Things to see

Bryce Canyon National Park has miles of unspoiled wilderness, including the famous red rocks, and it's best seen by slipping on some hiking boots and following one of the many trails. The red pillars of rock, technically known as hoodoos, are surrounded by lush greenery in the warmer months, and have a sprinkle of snow in the winter which just adds to their unique look. Sunrise Point is a popular place for tourists and coaches to stop, and from here you can get some breathtaking photos across the northeast of the park over the most dramatic features.

If you need a rest after your travels, head to Ebenezer's Barn and Grill which has traditional cowboy dinner shows in a rustic wooden barn. You can enjoy some traditional American cuisine while you are entertained by different varieties of country music and skills from the lasso to line dancing.
