    Utah is made up of vibrant and historic cities and towns, all surrounded by natural beauty. The natural landscapes in Utah are made up of (5) national parks, (9) national monuments, (5) national forests, (44) state parks, (15) ski resorts and millions of additional acres of open spaces with no official designation save for “Utah.”

    Utah is known for its national parks and outdoors, but what makes a Utah vacation truly unique is the proximity of natural wonder to all the attractions and destinations a major metropolitan hub offers. From art and cultural museums to historic sites and resorts spas, your Utah vacation doesn’t have to be about getting off the grid.

    Utah’s world-famous scenery and recreation are accompanied by a host of lodging options to fit your travel style. This includes five star luxury hotels and resorts, inexpensive motels, privately owned RV parks, working ranches, ski lodges, Airbnbs, 300+ public campgrounds and even glamping sites.

    TRANSPORTATION Air Travel Utah is accessible to the world via Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Salt Lake City is an excellent place to begin your trip to understand Utah’s culture, history and local flavors – and see the towering mountains overlooking the city. Travelers can also fly into Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport for slightly closer access to Southern Utah sites, including a 2.5-hour drive from Zion National Park.

    Flights from SLC or other regional airports serve Ogden (OGD) and Provo (PVU) on the Wasatch Front in the Northern Utah, whereas Southern Utah has St. George (SGU) and Moab/Canyonlands (CNY).

    Bus & Rail Travel Amtrak’s California Zephyr is one of the most beautiful train trips in North America. Daily Utah stops include a staffed station in Salt Lake City and unstaffed stops in Provo, Helper and Green River. Amtrak bus service connects to Ogden.

    If you prefer traveling by bus, Greyhound Bus Lines offer frequent service to and throughout Utah on its transcontinental routes along all interstates (I-15, I-84, I-80 and I-70) as well as to Denver along U.S. 40 and Moab along U.S. 191.

    Traveling Around Utah The best way to explore the state is to rent a car, though there are private shuttle and tour options. In the Wasatch Front urban corridor of Northern Utah we suggest you use our easy to use and accessible public transportation, including TRAX light rail, FrontRunner commuter rail and the UTA bus system. For statewide travel, it takes time to travel between major locations. Take advantage of the many scenic byways to enjoy the local scenery, small towns and off the beaten track attractions.

    CLIMATE Utah is a land of four distinct seasons. Summer temperatures sometimes linger into traditional autumn months and winter snows often coming early or linger late into spring. However, regardless of the season Utah’s climate is temperate, but you should come prepared for extremes – especially if you plan on spending time in the outdoors. Daytime temperatures for Utah’s northern metropolitan areas range from 3°C in January to 34°C in July. In Southwestern Utah, St George’s temperatures are usually at least 2-3°C warmer year-round.
