Utah is a kid-centric state. terren in Virginia/flickr Look in your driveway this afternoon, and you’ll surely see a couple minivans and SUVs. Bring on the cousins! 2. Southern Utahns are surrounded by natural beauty. Carl Berger/flickr Our national parks are simply stunning. 3. Northern Utahns are also surrounded by natural beauty.
