Southwestern Utah


Southwestern Utah is a playground for those who love the great outdoors. The biggest draw is the Mighty Five national parks: Zion, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon and Arches. Ranking among America’s best national parks, the Mighty Five offers stunning landscapes filled with red-rock hoodoos, plunging canyons, breathtaking arches and jagged peaks.

But there’s more to see beyond the Mighty Five. Cedar Breaks National Monument wows with layers of muted red, orange, yellow and purple in its rock amphitheater made of eroding limestone, sandstone and shale. Drive through the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to admire colorful sandstone cliffs towering above slot canyons in the backcountry. Walk through the orange-red dunes at 3,730-acre Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. Or a take a jaunt to Lake Powell, the second-largest human-made lake in the United States (behind Lake Mead).

Whichever adventure you choose, the natural beauty will not disappoint.
