$99 for a Zion National Park Bus Tour ($209.99 Value)
The Joshua trees of the Mojave Desert give way to the red cliffs of St. George, Utah, as tourists watch the landscape unravel from the comfort of luxurious buses. The 10-hour journey to Zion National Park begins in Vegas with a morning snack and refreshments. A tour narrator doles out regional tidbits and gossip about tectonic plates as buses pass along the Virgin River Gorge. From the gorges of northwestern Arizona, Utah's clay-red stones rise to announce the arrival at Zion. Visitors can explore the national park's jutting cliffs on foot or from a shuttle that makes frequent stops for picture taking and group sneezing.
