Utah, also known as the Beehive State, abounds with sights that should be on the top of everyone’s “must see” lists. From countless national and state parks, to the myriad of museums, campgrounds, and culture, it would be hard to run out of things to do and see in Utah. Major activities include camping, skiing, snowboarding, river rafting, golfing and more. Some of the most admired cities among visitors to Utah are Cedar City, Logan, Moab, Park City, Salt Lake City and more.
With five national parks, Utah is the national parks capital of America. Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef National Park and Zion National Park are all worth exploring. Finally, the Northern Rim of Grand Canyon National Park belongs to Utah because it is best accessed through southern Utah. Because all of these national parks are located close together, visitors can experience them all in one trip!
