Likely a traveler's first stop in Zion National Park, the visitor center contains a large bookstore, a miniature model of the entire park and knowledgeable park staff who are more than happy to answer questions. Plus, it's also a "green building," complete with solar panels, cooling towers and outdoor shade structures, among other eco-friendly elements. In fact, visitors can go for an "ecohunt" inside the visitor center to find out more about its green features.
One traveler describes the visitor center as an invaluable place to pick up maps and information about the park on your way in. On the way out, it's a great place to purchase mementos and books for further reading.
The Zion Canyon Visitor Center is open daily, starting at 8 a.m. In the winter, it closes at 5 p.m.; in the spring and fall, it closes at 6 p.m.; and in the summertime, it remains open until 7 p.m. You'll find it right inside the park's south entrance. For more information, visit the National Park Service's website.
