Zion National Park

Close to Paradise Village, Zion National Park makes for some of the most beautiful hikes you will ever experience. Although, if you're planning a winter vacation, you should be prepared for Zion in winter. Although most hiking trails remain open, there have been cases of winter weather making them impassable. So, if you want to go on a hike here during winter, make sure you're prepared. With that out of the way, however, Zion National Park is a truly unique experience everyone should have at least once.


Tuacahn Outdoor Amphitheater

The Tuacahn Outdoor Amphitheater is home to a non-profit organization called the Tuacahn Center for the Arts. This organization aims to bring some of the best Broadway musicals to the canyons of Utah. The amphitheater is a sight to see, but the shows the organization puts on are entirely different. In order to make the experience as best as possible, they bring in some of Utah's best actors. All in all, if you pay a visit to the Tuacahn Outdoor Amphitheater, which we can warmly recommend, you can expect an overall unforgettable experience. If you don't want the outdoor experience, nearby you can find the Hafen Theatre House, which offers a much more intimate understanding of the arts.
