Popular Destinations For Summer Travel In Utah

If you have not yet made summer travel plans, now's the time to do it. Right now there is still plenty of availability for summer dates at most of our popular destinations, including places in Salt Lake City and our national parks.

The Deseret News has this article to help people make plans. Below is the headline and then excerpts.

Ideas and popular destinations for summer travel in Utah

If you’re interested in visiting the most popular places in Utah, historic Temple Square in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City would be the first place to start.

“We recommend visitors to Temple Square take time to see the Christus statue located in the North Visitors Center and the scale model replica of the Salt Lake Temple in the South Visitors Center. The Thursday evening Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsals and the Sunday morning Music and the Spoken Word broadcast are always highlights for visitors. All of these suggested opportunities are available at no charge.”

Also high on the list of most visited places in the state are its national parks.

Utah’s five parks include BryceCanyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Zion and Arches National Park. Arches National Park is home to one of Utah’s popular symbols, the Delicate Arch.

“I can’t even tell you how many people I know up in Salt Lake who have never been to Delicate Arch or seen it,” says (Marian) DeLay. “It’s branded on their license plate and it’s right here in their own backyard.”

World-class skiing attracts visitors to Utah’s slopes in the winter, but many of Utah’s resorts also offer activities during the summertime. Check out places like Snowbird or Park City Mountain Resort for things like their alpine slides, ziplines or horseback riding.
