Travel to Utah, USA
Salt Lake City
Utah’s capital and most diverse city, Salt Lake lies in a scenic mountain valley 4,330 feet above sea level. With an interactive children’s museum and the world’s largest dinosaur exhibit, Salt Lake is an exciting destination for families, but is equally fun for couples and friends with its vibrant nightlife. The world-renowned Tabernacle Choir completes any visit.
The Mighty 5
Utah is home to a variety of stunning national parks – The Mighty 5 refers to Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. Every park offers river rafting, biking, hiking, mule riding and camping along with unique attractions and views. If you have the time, you won’t regret visiting all five, but plan to explore at least a couple.
Located in the eastern portion of the state, Moab is Utah’s ultimate gateway for outdoor adventure. Arches and Canyonlands National Park are both located here along with some of the most captivating red rock formations in the Southwest. Go white-water rafting or choose to hike, bike and kayak or simply enjoy Moab’s surprising array of fine dining.
Home of the Sundance Film Festival, world-renowned outdoor sports and historic charm, Park City knows how to please. Located just a half hour’s drive from Salt Lake, Park City has a decidedly small-town feel, but its diversions are endless. On Main Street you’ll discover a variety of local restaurants and coffee houses along with independent boutiques and wine bars. The International Mountain Bicycling Association considers Park City as the world’s best mountain biking destination.
Rent a houseboat, set up camp or simply jump in – there’s no wrong way to enjoy picturesque Lake Powell. A magnificent reservoir located along the Utah-Arizona border, Lake Powell was actually manmade by the flooding of Glen Canyon.
