Bryce Canyon National Park is ready to celebrate its 2023 centennial, kicking off June 8 with a centennial ceremony and live concert on the exact date President Harding established Bryce Canyon as a national monument 100 years ago. After the ceremony, Utah’s The Piano Guys perform a free concert on the canyon’s rim.
Here are some other top activities in Bryce Canyon Country to help you celebrate the 100th all year long:
Wild West Adventures
Travel the way locals did 100 years ago by horseback riding various trails in the area through outfitters like Ruby’s Inn. At Widtsoe Ghost Town, an early 1900s mill town, recall the early days of Bryce Canyon’s settlement.
Bryce Canyon Country overflows with lakes and reservoirs, so take on a variety of water-based activities. Lake Powell makes for a fantastic daytrip. Rent private boats, fish, sit by the water and more. A See-Doo fishing tour thrills with a high-speed jet-ski watercraft ride to excellent fishing spots. Wide Hollow Reservoir is also a favorite fishing and boating spot among locals.
