Utah Travel Guide

For a grand tour, make the 18-mile drive to the point, stopping at the park’s 13 spectacular viewpoints along the way back. Take the 23-mile Under-the-Rim Trail between Bryce and Rainbow Point, with eight backcountry campsites (you’ll need a permit).

During late spring and summer, crowds are a fact of life here, but these guides can steer you through the lesser-known hikes.

Pack a picnic (sans alcohol) for an alfresco concert at this 2,000-seat amphitheater, surrounded by the cliffs of Zion National Park.

Red Mountain Spa has added 12 residential villas (from $540,000) to its 55-acre crimson desert setting for those who find a week of pampering is just not enough.

In the off season at Deer Valley, mountain biking on the slopes is a popular summertime sport. An all-day lift pass goes for less than one-third of the ski-season price.

Visit the gorgeous 2,000-foot-deep gorge.
