Do you love national parks? (Who doesn’t!) Zion is the area’s biggest draw for hikers, bikers, campers and red-rock-gawkers — and for good reason. (see: Kolob Canyon, The Narrows, Angels Landing, etc.). But St. George is also the perfect hub for national park multitasking. It’s 2 hours to Bryce Canyon, 2:30 to Grand Canyon, 3:20 to Great Basin and 3:30 to Capitol Reef, so if you’re trekking from one of these to the next, block out a few days in St. George to recharge.
