Best Summer Vacation Spots: Southern Utah

During a southern Utah summer, the sun is almost always shining, and there's always an adventure to be had. If you want to make the most out of your summer break, then consider booking a summer vacation at one of these top spots in southern Utah:

Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Parks is situated in the heart of southern Utah, but once you step inside the park's boundaries, you will feel as if you have been transported to a different planet. This national park is known for its incredible hoodoos, which jut into the sky and define the landscape of the park. These red rock hoodoos seem to defy gravity, and most visitors cannot get enough of them. In order to enjoy the endless hiking trails in the park, consider staying on location at The Lodge at Bryce Canyon.


Kanab is the perfect city to visit in southern Utah if you are looking for a vacation destination that offers a mix of history and adventure. Kanab was once known as Little Hollywood because it was the filming location for many of the most famous Hollywood western films. Attractions such as Little Hollywood Land are perfect for families, and those who truly want to immerse themselves in the history of the community can stay at Parry Lodge. Parry Lodge is a historic hotel that has had many famous actors and actresses stay there as they filmed their movies.

Lake Powell

Southern Utah may be known for its desert landscape and dry, arid climate, but that doesn't mean you can't have a waterfront vacation there. Lake Powell is a favorite destination among Utah locals and visitors alike. One unique way to enjoy Lake Powell is to rent a houseboat from Antelope Point Marina for the week so you can enjoy 360-degree waterfront views throughout your entire summer vacation in Utah. 

Whether you are looking for a trip that allows you take a step back in time or you are hoping to step forward into a thrilling adventure, you will find the getaway you are searching for in southern Utah.
