Have you ever dreamed of driving across the country? We have!
Many years ago when we were younger, our parents drove across this beautiful country in a stationwagon with an RV attached. This trip was so educational as well as fun. So, we are planning to do it again. But, not with an RV attached this time.
Maybe you’ve even started planning it a few times, mapping out your route and picking cities to stop in along the way. Before you pack your bags and drive off, make sure Utah is a stop along the way. This all-American state offers a diverse landscape that provides the most scenic drives. Stop in a town along the way for a bite to eat, or stay the night and explore.
Utah is a photographer’s dream. The diverse landscape welcomes everyone from amateurs to professionals. The natural rock formations and canyons that are unique to the state create a picturesque backdrop that makes taking a bad photo almost impossible.
Capture the light at Monument Valley at sunset, navigate the tight shots of Slot Canyon, or explore the Bonneville Salt Flats during your next trip.
When you think of the USA’s best BBQ joints, you might not imagine them to be in the south. A little known secret about Utah is that they are the west coast capital of BBQ.
Utah has a long-standing history of being home to good BBQ that dates back to the days of the wild west and cooking over an open fire under the night sky. The BBQ culture in Utah has since grown and developed with legendary BBQ joints all over the state.
The Great Salt Lake is one of the most asked-about tourist destinations in Utah. A remnant of the massive ancient Lake Bonneville, it is the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere and the largest lake between the Great Lakes and the Pacific Ocean.
The Great Salt Lake and its islands provide outstanding scenery and recreational opportunities in northern Utah. Sunsets over the lake can be breathtaking, attracting everyone from sailors to photographers.
There’s just something about fresh mountain air. Leaving a crowded city and spending time surrounded by nature does a body good. You feel reinvigorated, you sleep better, and it simply just smells better! Escaping the hustle and bustle of daily life to reconnect with nature is easy to do in Utah.
The Rockies run through the state, allowing you to spend time in the mountains. Go in the summer and spend time hiking or visit in the winter and check out the world-class skiing. Either way, the mountains are calling!
The best time of year to visit Utah is any time of year. You’ll find the landscapes and cities of Utah to be picture perfect in any season, from the Rocky Mountains down to the Colorado Plateau. See the iconic red rock formations gently covered in bright white snow or miles of wildflowers stretching through the valleys. Discover what makes Utah beautiful all year round.
