Greetings, explorers! I’m about to embark on an unforgettable tour through Utah’s breathtaking scenery. Due to the travel restrictions, I made the decision to explore my home state once more. The Beehive State, sometimes known as Utah, is home to many unusual places. Utah is home to a variety of attractions, from well-known national parks to less well-known gems. So grab a seat as I take you on a virtual tour of my top 10 favorite locations in Utah.
1. Bonneville Salt Flats: A World of White
Just two hours west of Salt Lake City, at the renowned Bonneville Salt Flats, our journey officially begins. Just picture 30,000 acres of pure, white salt. Films like Pirates of the Caribbean have made use of this bizarre setting. It’s ideal for pursuits like land speed records attempts or even trampolining. Just be careful if it rains since the salt turns into a huge mirror and your automobile could become stuck!
2. Arches National Park: Nature’s Sculpture Garden
Our next visit is Arches National Park, where nature displays its artistry via innumerable unique rock formations. Delicate Arch, one of Utah’s most famous attractions, calls with its splendor. The three-mile hike to get there is well worth it. But keep in mind that Arches has more to offer than Delicate Arch; explore and be delighted.
3. Causey Reservoir: Summer Vibes by the Water
For those seeking summer adventures, Causey Reservoir is your paradise. Just an hour’s drive from Salt Lake City, it offers a tranquil escape. With no motor boats to disturb, you can enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, or even cliff jumping. Causey Reservoir is all about sun-soaked memories.
