For many, living in Utah is the dream due to its cheaper cost of living than in other major cities. There is also a growing number of housing projects and affordable condos in the region. The city is expanding and welcoming diverse races, cultures, and religions, as opposed to its past being a very conservative and religious place. A growing city, it’s also home to shopping centers for the modernized locals such as the City Creek Center, Trolley Square, and The Gateway, among others. Lastly, a major plus to living in the city is also the fact that it is a paradise for a lot of nature and outdoor lovers, which makes camping in Utah also a dream for many. If you are thinking of moving to Utah or simply booking a camping trip, here are some of the worthy sights you might want to add to your itinerary.
The Instagrammable Views of Moab and More
Utah is home to the Instagram-worthy Canyonlands National Park and the Arches National Park in Moab. To further immortalize your trip and to get the perfect shot, you can hike up to the iconic Delicate Arch of the Arches. If you are a big fan of waiting for the sunrise, a morning drive to the Dead Horse Point State Park is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you should try.
The Colorado River, with its low waters during the fall, is also the best choice for a run for beginners. The Capitol Reef National Park, a less-traveled terrain, may also be a good choice for those who want something different. The park offers majestic views of cliffs, domes, and canyons in the 100-mile long geologic monocline called the Waterpocket Fold.
The #NoFilter Needed Views of Northern Utah
If you’ve always wanted to try skiing and snowboarding in the Winter, Northern Utah should be added to your list of go-to’s during the season. However, this place also has its own beauty during the summer, where beautiful trees and flowers grow in the land. You also get to witness the luscious green mountains and take in the fresh air. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest also preserves many unspoiled beauties in the area, making it the best place for outdoor activities such as mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, and more.
You will also find the majestic Bear Lake at the intersection of Utah and Idaho. The 250,000-year-old lake is also home to unique fishes that are native only to the waters of the Bear Lake.
The Jaw-Dropping Sand Dunes and More
From St. George to Utah’s center are jaw-dropping sand dunes, hoodoos, and red rocks that are sure to keep your phone gallery full and your memory astounded.
At the Snow Canyon State Park, you can enjoy hiking, climbing, and even horseback riding in the sand dunes and the underground lava tubes. On the east side, you’ll find the Zion National Park, which looks much better in person than in photos. Hike up a little further, and you may find yourself at Angel’s Landing. You can also take a drive to the Zion-Mount-Carmel Highway. An hour away and northeast of Zion, you can see for yourself the hoodoos, which also make up the Amphitheater of the Bryce Canyon Park.
