9 Places In Utah That Are Better Than Anywhere Else In The Country
Utah is full of spots that are uniquely beautiful, and much better than anything you’d find elsewhere in the country. Here are nine of our favorites.
1. Zion National Park
There's a reason that millions of people come from all over the world to see Zion National Park. Its stunning beauty and vast canyons are simply beyond compare.
2. Bryce Canyon National Park
The amphitheaters in Bryce Canyon National Park are filled with strange, beautiful hoodoos that Mother Nature spent thousands of years carving. The views here are breathtaking and vast.
3. The Great Salt Lake
Utahns tend to under-appreciate The Great Salt Lake. After all, it can be stinky and swarming with bugs throughout much of the year. Sometimes you need an excellent photographer to remind you just how stunning this place is.
4. Dead Horse Point State Park
It's impossible to capture the true majesty of this place on film; it's much bigger in real life that you can imagine. If you want to feel like you're a tiny speck on the planet, stand at this overlook and gaze across the landscape.
5. Wasatch Mountains
Have you ever visited a place that doesn't have mountains? If so, then you know just how lucky we are to have the Wasatch Mountain Range in our backyards. From hiking in the summer to skiing in the winter, you won't find a better outdoor playground anywhere.
6. Arches National Park
There's a reason that Delicate Arch is on our license plates; it's downright jaw-dropping. Again, you can't begin to get a feel for the scale of this gem until you're standing under it. And the best part? It's just one of more than 2,000 arches in the park.
7. Mirror Lake Scenic Byway
This 54-mile-long scenic byway takes you from Kamas, Utah to Evanston, Wyoming. Along the way, you'll soak in some of Utah's most gorgeous scenery and travel along its highest paved road, reaching an elevation of 10,715 feet.
8. Goblin Valley State Park
Goblin Valley State Park is so unusual that it's been featured in many sci-fi movies over the years. Where else can you go to feel like you've just landed on Mars? The rich, red hoodoos here are otherworldly.
9. Capitol Reef National Park
Capitol Reef's soaring cliffs and massive sandstone formations cover 378 square miles. You can see why this park draws just over 1 million visitors every year.
