Utah is known for its incredibly diverse landscape, from sandstone deserts to snow-capped peaks. Formerly a mormon territory, 65% of the state’s land is public, with 12 national parks to choose from, while the progressive and vibrant cities, such as Salt Lake City and Park City, offer enticing food scenes and thriving night life.
Being such a perfect natural playground, many people come to Utah seeking outdoor adventure in a dramatic setting. The 12 national parks each offer something a little different, such as the Arches National Park with over 2000 stone arches and gorgeous red rock vistas, or Bryce Canyon National Park with its natural amphitheatre, or even the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which has over a million acres of water and land activities. Those that are looking for some history intermingled with nature should take a walk through the Dinosaur National Monument, another national park with plenty of activities, including exploring the spectacular cliffs that contain many dinosaur fossils.
The opportunities for sports enthusiasts are simply endless in Utah, with one of the most popular activities being to hike one of the many different trails through the national parks. Rafting, snow boarding and skiing are also popular sports, especially around Park City, and just exploring the landscape in your own time is a journey of pure beauty; a dream for any photographer.
Salt Lake City, the state capital of Utah, is a modern and friendly city with world-class ski resorts, an array of innovative restaurants, and plenty of shops, museums and other attractions to keep you busy and entertained. Since downtown Salt Lake City is quite compact, one of the best ways to explore the area is by a walking tour, where you will be taken through several historical sites, urban parks, cultural venues, and even to the planetarium. The Mormon temple is also an important monument in the city, but visitors are not allowed inside unless they are Mormon. Just a half hour drive from Salt Lake City is the Great Salt Lake, the largest inland lake west of the Mississippi. The south side of the lake are where the bathing beaches and recreation areas are, and, just like in the Dead Sea of Israel, the Great Salt Lake is salty enough for bathers to be able to float without sinking.
The cities of Utah have plenty of great dining options, with many gourmet and fine dining restaurants, run by innovative and talented chefs. However, you will also find many local dishes, created from culinary traditions that have been passed down generations. From huckleberry flavored honey to the Utah scone to the candy-sweet Bear Lake raspberries to the sweetest Green River melons, the varied landscape makes for some delicious fresh produce.
With its red-rock cliffs and sandstone deserts in the south, to the powdery slopes and dense pine forests of the north, Utah’s diverse landscape is one that everyone can truly appreciate. The quiet Mormon towns contrasting with the thriving cities offer a range of places to visit, but it has to be said that Utah’s star attractions are its national parks, and the natural wonders that they each hold within them.
