Utah might not seem like the most obvious choice when thinking of places to visit in the United States, but that’d be wrong! There are so many totally epic and best places in Utah that are dotted all across the state and well worth visiting whilst on a road trip.
Yes, Utah can be overshadowed by its well-known siblings like California, Florida or New York (to name a few). Though, that doesn’t mean you should just brush past Utah without giving it a second glance. It’s one of the best states to visit in the United States if you’re a nature-lover like us!
Trust me, Utah is a gold mine of incredible places and history that you really can’t miss. Plus, it’s so diverse, too. Just be prepared for some pretty big rambles around the state… your feet will be sore!
With that in mind, take a little gander at some of the best places in Utah that we love (and hopefully you will too). Have the best time exploring.
1.) Zion National Park
Nestled within the southwest of the state, you can easily spot a heap of the best places in Utah right within this stunning national park. In fact, I’d go as far as saying it’s one of the very best national parks in the US, too!
After rocking up, head on over to explore the trails around the Narrows, or take the harder (and steeper) hikes to Angels Landing. Also, if you do love a good hike, follow the Observation Point Trail that’ll lead you to some of the best canyon views around Zion National Park. Just be prepped for a tough hike!
