Bryce Canyon National Park is famed for being home to "hoodoos" – those funky, otherworldly-looking wind-carved spires of red rock. Multi-hued natural stone amphitheaters and some of the best star-gazing in the United States also make this destination a jaw-dropping feast for the eyes. Visitors can explore the canyon on foot, horseback, or mountain bike.
