A Practical Guide to Zion: Page 1 2 3 4 5 6

Zion National Park is located in southwestern Utah in the heart of slot canyon country. If you are planning on flying in from a different region or country to visit the Grand Circle or just Zion National Park, your best bet is to fly into Las Vegas, Nevada and rent a car from the Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) consolidated rental facility. A free shuttle bus service will take you to and from the airport. Las Vegas lives off of tourism so it is usually quite easy to find affordable flights and car rentals. It is roughly a three-hour drive from Las Vegas to Zion National Park. (Note: The Harry Reid International Airport was formerly known as McCarran International Airport until 2021.)
