Northern and Southern Utah
The state of Utah is usually divided into two regions: northern and southern.
Utah’s biggest cities (like Salt Lake City and Park City) are in Northern Utah. These cities provide vibrant main streets and downtown centers with night life, festivals, historic buildings and performing arts.
You’ll also find mountains, forests, lakes and reservoirs where you can hike, boat, stargaze or camp in the North.
As you head toward Southern Utah, keep in mind this area is made up of small towns with limited services.
It’s important to note where the various Utah vacation spots are located around the state. A drive from Salt Lake City in the north to any of the National Parks in the south can take 4 to 5 hours.
You’ll find all 5 Utah National Parks in Southern Utah. These parks feature red rocks, arches, hoodoos, river-carved canyons, and more!
There’s an equally stunning list of Utah State Parks and National Monuments around the state where you can enjoy hiking, biking, off-roading, canyoneering, river rafting, and more!
