The urban heart of the Beehive State beats in Salt Lake City. The capital on the Great Salt Lake impresses with the imposing Salt Lake Temple on Temple Square, a vibrant microbrewery scene and more than 80 murals (street art murals). From here, a detour to Antelope Island State Park with its more than 700 free-roaming bison is definitely worthwhile. Further west, travellers encounter another scenic extreme - the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Olympic-size ski resorts in the north, with the scientifically proven "Greatest Snow on Earth®", alternate with rugged, desert-like landscapes and bizarre rock formations that seem to be from another planet in the south. An unrivalled feast for the eyes are undoubtedly the iconic "The Mighty 5®" national parks Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion, which are strung like a string of pearls between Moab and St. George.
Wild West & Nature Logan is also located in Utah's idyllic Cache Valley, known for its outdoor activities, historic sites and even worldwide musical, opera, theatre and Broadway shows. The town's affordable accommodations and delicious restaurants are just a ten-minute drive from the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, which offers hiking, biking, canoeing, fishing, and bird watching.
If you are a film lover, Utah should be on your bucket list: More than 1,000 films and TV series have been shot here, such as "Forrest Gump", "Thelma & Louise", "Mission Impossible II" or "Transformers". And how about stargazing? A night outdoors with a view of Utah's starry sky is definitely part of a holiday in Utah. Because almost nowhere else in the world can travellers see the Milky Way and stars within reach like here in the southwest of the USA. All 5 national parks are certified Dark Sky Parks & Places. Whether you are a nature lover, amateur photographer, outdoor enthusiast, with a rental car or in a camper van: everyone gets their money's worth in the Beehive State. At any time of year. The road trip of a lifetime awaits!
