This Might-y Be Your Next Favorite Place 🏜️

We were looking for adventures, breathtaking views and Instagram-worthy stays… and Utah did not disappoint! Here’s why and what we did.

We planned out the big things like parks, routes and stays in advance, and we recommend you do the same to make the most out of your time at The Beehive State. Believe us, there is a lot to see — home to The Mighty Five, Utah ranks third of states with the most national parks. We had an amazing time exploring the city, The Mighty Five, and a few additional gems we found along the way. With one full week of vacation, here’s how we managed to fit a LOT of fun stuff (and around 1,300 miles) into our schedule.
