My husband and I and our two kids spent the last year traveling around the state doing various things, visiting National and State parks, and eating at fun places. I am surprised that after a year, there is still so much we have on our list to do!
I’ve grown up in Utah most all of my life and I never knew how much our beautiful state has to offer. So whether you have lived in Utah and are looking for some great Utah “Staycation” Ideas, or whether you are traveling to Utah from somewhere else, here are some great ideas to include in your planning! We focused most of our ideas around things to do in Utah in the spring and summer, but many of these you can do in the winter as well.
To start, it wouldn’t be Utah travel without our National Parks. We must talk about our National Parks very first! Did you know that Utah is the national park capital of the USA?! Why? Because we have FIVE! There are only 58 total and we have 5 of them! Pretty incredible!
