As you have mentioned, there is plenty to do in Zion but if you fancy seeing the Grand canyon from a different viewpoint then here's some news for you from the National parks !
I am sure you will have an amazing and memorable trip and we would love to hear all about it when it's done. Enjoy !The entrance gate to the North Rim is Closed. It will reopen 6:30 am on May 15, 2021.
One tip we've learned over the years: never prepay for overnights unless you absolutely HAVE to. You may save a couple of bucks, but then you are stuck. Many prepaid's come with "non-refundable" on it. If you decide to go another direction, your car needs a repair, you have a family emergency, or you just find something and want to stay extra time, you lose the money. Such a shame!
We look for places where you can cancel up to 4pm of the day of arrival. Sometimes we have to take a place that requires 24 hours notice, which can be tricky. It's usually in a resort area, or a weekend in a college town or something like that.
Oscar's Cafe. I've eaten a couple of meals there in the last month. The food and service is excellent and unlike many places in Springdale, there is plenty of parking!
And if your plans change, I really liked staying at the Driftwood Lodge. Nice restaurant here too. Best room: #515 for the view.
We are back from our trip and I wanted to thank you for your help in planning this. It turns out that we loved Kanab, visited Best Friends and Coral Pink Sand Dunes. We had a wonderful meal at Rocking V's for lunch. I am so thankful for your guidance and knowledge about the area.
When we were diving from Monument Valley to the S Rim of the Grand Canyon we took a turn and went to Page, visited Horseshoe Bend and then went to Lake Powell to kayak and got to hike part of Antelope Canyon. The entrance through the Native Park was closed but if you Kayak to the other side you can hike there. It was an awesome detour.
Hi. Thanks for dropping by with an update, it sounds like you had a great time. Its such a beautiful area with som much to do and see, you could back time after time !
