To Do and See in Utah

Utah’s the #3-rank on U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best States list for good reason. The Beehive State is an outdoor paradise and has some pretty great cities too.

 

The number of incredible state and national parks (and other beautiful natural phenoms) in Utah is a major draw to outdoorsy types or even those who aren’t super active but love a scenic drive. We’re talking some real stunners, including Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Arches National, plus Monument Valley, Dead Horse Point State Park, Capitol Reef State Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument, and Dinosaur National Monument.

 

Additional otherworldly Utah places like the Great Salt Lake, Bonneville Salt Flats, and Coral Pink Sand Dunes are must-sees when you’re on assignment in the state. Set your compass to Moab too, as it’s one of the great outdoor meccas for mountain bikers, hikers, and rafters.

 

Mormon history is also on display here, especially in St. George and Salt Lake City. Park City is famously home to the Sundance Film Festival each January and it also boasts several top ski resorts, with even more close nearby. The Utah Olympic Park, which was the venue for the 2002 Winter Olympics, is not far from Park City. Nowadays you can go there and enjoy activities like bobsledding, hiking, and ziplining, depending on the season.

 

Hungry from all that outdoorsy-ness? Utah’s got you covered with state food favorites like pastrami burgers, Utah scones, green jello, Dutch oven dinner, honey, melons, fry sauce, funeral potatoes, ice cream shakes, and raspberries.
