Why Now is the Best time to Visit Zion National Park

Zion National Park has long been considered one of the most stunning parks in the United States, featuring breathtaking vistas and colorful canyons that can't be found anywhere else. It's a favorite summer vacation destination, but now the peak tourist season is coming to an end. Fall in Zion National Park is a quieter, more peaceful time of year — and it's also more colorful and alive.

At Parry Lodge, we believe that now is the best time to book a trip to Zion. Here's why:

There's fun and inviting events that take place in the fall.

National parks visitors will always be able to find a new trail to hike or a beautiful photo stop, but there are events that only come to Zion National Park once a year. In September, visitors can enjoy the Zion Music Festival. The lineup has not been released for this year's festival, but an announcement is expected soon. It will take place on September 28 and 29. During the first week of November, the 10th Annual Zion National Park Plein Air Art Event will take place.

Lighter crowds and invigorating colors improve the experience.

As families with children get ready for another school year, the crowds die down significantly during the fall season. Travelers who want to enjoy a more intimate experience in this gorgeous park will love the fall. In addition, the fall season ushers in an array of colorful leaves. The autumn display is unlike anything else, and makes for beautiful photographs.

The weather is near perfect this time of year.

The cool breezes of fall temper the stifling temperatures that plague Zion in the summer season. Visitors can expect temperatures to range from 40 degrees to 70 degrees. It is also the dry season in Zion National Park, which is ideal for exploring the trails and discovering the canyons.
