Zion National Park owes most of its popularity to this scenic highway. Connecting the park to the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, this 10-mile stretch is nothing less than a roller coaster ride, with switchbacks, slickrocks and seasonal waterfalls adding to the charm of the road. There are various places along the path where you can pull over to soak in the raw beauty of nature surrounding you. The Mt. Carmel Tunnel is one of the highlights of the highway. Constructed before cars were a part of our daily lives, this historic tunnel stretches over 1.1 miles and was built with the purpose of connecting major cities to these nature's bounties.
