A comfortable visitor center that was welcoming and warm during our very cold stay. We were there every day to watch artist demonstrations and so enjoyed the atmosphere and amenities.

The visitors center is basically a place to walk around the bookstore/gift shop, use the restrooms and catch the shuttle. Not much else there.

As always before visiting a national park, I visit the visitor center. In Zion a must when you are going to walk the river gorge because of he latest information about the weather and possibility of flash floods. Good and clear information provided!

A great start to an amazing place. Had a great little gift shop with tons of options. You could get a sweatshirt for a very reasonable price as it is a little chilly this time of year.

I only remember one shuttle bus ride that took you up and down the different stops for hiking etc. The drivers normally talk about the different exits or the have a recording playing during the ride. No Ranger led tours.
