Spring Break Utah Style
Many families take spring break trips to Utah destinations and many students congregate at certain spots without parents. Dates for "Spring break" vary from group to group, depending on school calendars, but Easter weekend in particular attracts plenty of travelers. You should plan ahead if you want to find lodging Easter weekend in the destinations listed below.
Three particular Utah destinations attract spring break travelers. They are:
In Moab, the annual Jeep Safari happens over Easter weekend and it always draws big crowds. The St George Arts Festival runs April 6 & 7, and it is also very popular. Those two cities will be very busy Eastern weekend.
St George hosts many school baseball and soccer tournaments during the spring, because the weather is usually nice. The community's legendary golf courses are also very busy.
The Little Sahara Sand Dunes recreation area is located in central Utah, and so temperatures are not as warm as in Moab or St George. Still, people flock to the dunes to ride ATVs, dune buggies and dirt bikes. There are no motels at the dunes and so most people camp - and the campgrounds feel up every year.
If you are heading to any of these places, be aware they will be crowded.
