We’re fortunate, in Utah, to live with rich cultural and geographic diversity. There are incredible places to play in Utah, from southern Utah’s red rock to the pristine lakes and mountain vistas of northern Utah.
Utah has 44 state parks, five national parks, 15 world-class ski resorts and four-season recreation opportunities.
The state’s also home to over 35 million acres of public lands and more than 20,000 miles of trails with 550 access points. Statewide, more than 85% of Utahns live within 15 minutes of a trailhead.
There are sports and cultural events, museums and amusement parks.
At a time when travel and tourism can be challenging, Utahns have the opportunity to stay and play locally. There’s so much to do, even within a short drive from home.
If you’re looking for an activity, recreation or entertainment, look locally and plan to Play In Utah.
