The amount of outdoor activities that Utah has to offer is unparalleled, and the best time to experience most of them is during the summer.
Try these 3 activities while the weather is still hot, before it gets cold enough to bust out your skis.
Hang out with Bison at Antelope Island
The largest island in the Great Salt Lake, Antelope Island is home to a large population of bison and bighorn sheep, as well as millions of migrating birds that fly through at different points throughout the year. With plenty of hiking and camping opportunities, this is the best way to view the largest salt water lake in North America.
Ride the Historic Heber Valley Railroad
Step back in time to when the railroad ruled the land at Heber Valley Railroad. Take a ride on this historic train as it winds through stunning Provo Canyon and past Deer Creek Reservoir in the shadow of Mount Timpanogos.
Take in the Delicate Arch at Arches National Park
You see Delicate Arch all over the place on license plates, but when was the last time you saw it in person?
After a 40 minute hike through a gorgeous red rock landscape, as you round a bend you’re finally greeted with a spectacular view of the truly gigantic Delicate Arch. It really needs to be seen to be truly appreciated. Arches National Park has much more to offer than Delicate Arch (with over 2000 natural arches in the park). There’s plenty to see from the comfort of your car, but if you set out on foot, you’ll be rewarded ten times over.
