Happy Birthday to the National Park service!! America has over 400 National Parks with a little over 100 of them charging entrance fees. On August 25th the gift is for the guests and you can get out and see a National Park for free!! Bryce Canyon National Park is a great park to visit for this day. Bryce is located only 90 mins from Cedar City, just over 2 hours from St. George, and about an hour from Beaver and Richfield. The relatively close location makes it a great day trip and you can get an overview of the park during your day adventure. Take a drive through the entire park or take a hike!
