Why We Love It

Bryce Canyon City gets the designation of being the closest town to Bryce Canyon National Park. The park sits within the southwest corner of Utah and is known for its spectacular views and canyon trails. Despite the name, the park is not home to canyons, but instead several horseshoe shaped amphitheaters with spires called "hoodoos" carved from wind and water erosion. On clear days, visitors can see up to 100 mi (161 km) of the red and pink rock formations.
