Park
“Truly amazing and extra-ordinary rock formations, sculpted by eons of wind and water into narrow canyons and hoodoos. There is no place like it anywhere else on earth. If your time is short, visit the four view points around the main canyon amphitheater: Bryce Point, Inspiration Point, Sunset Point, and Sunrise Point. If you have time, hike the Navajo Loop trail, Queens Garden trail, and Peekaboo trail. For a longer visit, see all the view points along the highway, to where it ends at Rainbow Point. See the park map for all the trails and viewpoints. ”

“Can anyone say ambience? The Hell’s Backbone Grill is a great location for a special occasion. It’s the place to see and be seen for travelers and locals and offers comfort food with a twist at a slightly higher price point. They grow much of their food on their local farm and offer a cookbook of recipes and local history. This restaurant has a full liquor license and also serves brunch Saturday and Sunday.”
