5. Zion National Park
Apparently, Utah got the long end of the stick, showcasing not one but two National Parks on our list.
Zion National Park regularly attracts thrill-seekers. Visitors love The Narrows, a trail that takes them through the thinnest section of the Zion Canyon. Along the 10-mile hike, you’ll also have to travel upstream through the Virgin River, so you do have to be in top shape before you even think of giving it a try.
Then there’s Hike Angel’s Landing with its nearly 1,500 foot natural staircase- not for the faint of heart, but just as beautiful as the rest of the National Park.
Of course, those who are less excited about seeking thrills can always drive along the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive, a 57-mile long path that allows you to visit most of the park’s iconic landmarks from the comfort of your motor vehicle.
