Utah Overview

Temple Square Salt Lake City UT US Hotels

 

To describe all there is to do and see in Utah is a difficult task! Its primary cities line up and down I-15 which stretches vertically through the middle of the state. Capital Salt Lake City rests on the southeast edge of The Great Salt Lake, and its Mormon heritage is on display at Temple Square. Professional basketball and soccer are popular pastimes in this metro area of close to a million, including suburb West Valley City. Plenty of Utah hotels are available in every price range in this area. Provo, about an hour south of SLC, is home to Brigham Young University. Park City, known for spectacular winter skiing and world-famous Sundance Film Festival, is roughly an hour east of SLC or Provo.

The cities offer great nightlife and attractions, but rural Utah is what really shines!  Set aside enough time to explore the Grand Circle, which takes in all 5 Utah national parks. These parks are located in southern Utah: Arches National Park, where you will see over 2,000 natural sandstone formations; Bryce Canyon National Park, an astronomer’s delight with dark sky and lack of pollution; the Colorado River and its tributaries flow through Canyonlands National Park, where you can see the famous colorful spires called “Needles”; Capitol Reef National Park protects the unique 100-mile Waterpocket Fold in the earth’s crust; and Zion National Park, which is adorned by pink and cream sandstone cliffs.

Along with these parks you will find numerous National Monuments - here are three favorites: Natural Bridges National Monument, created when flowing rivers formed three natural bridges, and considered to be sacred by Native Americans; Rainbow Bridge National Monument, presenting the world’s largest natural bridge to her visitors; and Dinosaur National Monument, showcasing Jurassic dinosaur bones embedded in rock (this monument is more north, directly east of SLC).

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area covers over 1.2 million acres, near the Arizona state line; the Orange Cliffs lie in Utah, and visitors enjoy miles of trails which vary from two-wheel drive, high clearance to difficult four-wheel drive paths. Lake Powell, also in Glen Canyon, is a popular houseboating locale with over 186 lake miles amid exceptional scenery. Anasazi State Park Museum allows you to explore 100 excavated structures at an over 800 year old Pueblo community known as Coombs Site. Ahhhh, Utah.
