Where to go in Utah
List of regions
From twisted spires and arching rocks to mighty rivers and red-rock deserts framed by snow-capped peaks, Moab's Arches and Canyonlands national parks are Utah's adventure capital. Explore it all on activities that range from hikes and bike rides to river rafting and rock climbing.
Reshaped over millenia by wind, rain and ice, Zion Canyon lies at the very heart of its national park namesake. A six-mile scenic road will introduce you to its red-and-white cliffs framed by wild meadows and hanging gardens, while guided hikes bring you to spectacular overlooks.
The famous buttes and mesas of Monument Valley rise up along scenic Highway 163. These ancient rocks, famed for their starring role in countless Hollywood Westerns, are a stunning backdrop to ancient trails, horseback routes and the home of the Navajo – America's largest tribe.
