Utah is the ultimate getaway destination. It is home to multiple national parks, state parks, charming small towns, and so much more. However, many of these popular getaway destinations draw in a crowd and can become quite busy. Layton is an unassuming town in Davis County that has been named one of America’s best hidden gems for a weekend getaway and we have to agree. With family-friendly attractions, outdoor opportunities galore, delicious places to eat, and cozy accommodations, it’s one place that is definitely worth exploring.
