Book a three-day stay at Parry Lodge, where you will be close to the best attractions. Parry Lodge is only 34 minutes from Zion National Park and just under 90 minutes from Bryce Canyon National Park.

Spend Two Days in Moab

Moab is a quaint Utah town, where you can experience the authentic atmosphere of the American West.

At these two spots, you'll find plenty of hiking opportunities and photo stops.

Spend Two Days in Fruita

Finish off your week in Utah by staying in Fruita, which is located just outside the borders of Capitol Reef National Park.
