Food-tripping your way around Utah
Utah's cuisine has its roots in Native American tradition. Later came the early Pioneers and settlers who farmed the land and started communities. These large and close-knit communities were the reason for giant portions of the easy-to-prepare, heavy but hearty meals Utah is known for. Fun fact: Utah residents eat more Jell-O than any other state! The sort of food you’ll be savoring here includes dishes such as casseroles and creamy soups, potatoes and gravy, and a mountain of fries dunked or dragged through a mixture of ketchup and mayonnaise. Stop at any of their many hamburger joints to bite into juicy variations — barbecued; charbroiled; laden with melted cheese.
When you book a self-catering Utah vacation rental, you will have access to a kitchen and dining options, so that you can also eat home-cooked meals, or try out a few traditional recipes during your family vacation.
Weather in Utah
Utah has various climate zones and distinct seasons. Summer is hot in the north and gets hotter the further south you go, with temperatures often exceeding 100°F. It would be ideal to experience Utah’s mountain terrains when temperatures are comfortable and there is easy access to hiking trails and paths.
In winter, temperatures run from 20°-40°F in the north and snow is common, except in the southern valleys. Late November to mid-April is a good time to visit the state's ski resorts. Rain is much less common than snow, but summer and fall can see spectacular thunderstorms, especially in the northern mountains and throughout the south.
Things to see and do in Utah
There's plenty to experience with a vacation home in Utah. Go mountain biking along the trails of America’s finest national parks. In Arches and Zion, you had better have your camera ready, as you’ll find brilliant colors punctuating your view throughout the day. The famous past of the Mormon Church is written all over Salt Lake City, but the history of Utah goes even further. Some of the earliest settlers left petroglyphs (rock engravings) and the mountains hide ancient geological secrets that tell the story of the Earth's formation.
Driving along Highway 89 is a super scenic experience. It is 502 miles of pure beauty. You’ll come across wide open spaces of the Great Salt Lake, Utah Lake, and historic sites. Blossoming orchards along the way give the country its charm, while farmers plow fields where ponies contentedly graze. Life in Utah is slow and satisfying.
Make Salt Lake City your base for your Utah vacation home, and drive to Provo River Canyon for another spectacular view. The Provo River Parkway runs for 15 miles, from Utah Lake State Park, to Vivian Park. It ends with the sensational Bridal Veil Falls. Stop here to take photographs — you won’t regret it! Then, at Bryce Canyon National Park, admire the wildlife. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot roaming elk, deer, and birds in their natural habitat.
Utah’s Art and Culture
Want to unwind with a little culture? The Natural History Museum of Utah in Salt Lake City houses more than 1.2 million artifacts and specimens. Learn about the cultures and traditions of Utah’s recognised tribes, as well as Utah's natural history.
Music and arts are also a big feature in Park City, where every August world-renowned music, arts, plays, symphony concerts and Sundance film screenings are held at the Artsravaganza. Located in the heart of Main Street, the Egyptian Theater Company also presents musicals and dramas.
