I am in the beginning stages of planning a somewhat last-minute trip to Bryce Canyon at the end of August. We will be flying from Chicago and renting a car, and I'm trying to figure out whether to fly to Las Vegas or Salt Lake City. Looks like the mileage is about thes same for both, but which route would give us more to see on the way to Bryce?
We would love to catch another National Park as well. If we drive from Las Vegas, looks like it would be easy to stop at Zion. What if we drive from Salt Lake City (which offers cheaper fares)?
Our trip will be about a week total (including our flights to/from).
Thanks for your help!
