Home Adventures Utah No. 1 in Awesome

Utah No. 1 in Awesome


If you’re like us, you’re gritting your teeth that Fodor’s, the uncool travel guide, has chosen Utah as the Top Destination in the galaxy.

That, of course, means our fantastic, somewhat unsullied outdoors will be even more overrun with tracks-leaving, generally obnoxious hominids.


Fodor’s pointed to “the newly expanded Park City, the largest single ski and snowboard resort in the U.S.”, “five outstanding national parks,” and “unforgettable experiences like viewing fossils at Dinosaur National Monument, rafting the Colorado River or staying at a working ranch.”

(Fordor’s amazingly didn’t even mention Utah’s peculiar liquor laws!)

SLmag’s recent feature on the Mighty Five national parks (which we had most of the world fooled into thinking were in Colorado or Arizona) gives you an idea of what is at stake. AFAR also put the parks in its top-ten listing worldwide for 2016.


On the other hand, maybe the incoming tsunami of tourist cash will convince the Legislature that ecotourism and hospitality, rather than mineral and oil and gas extraction is the way to grow.


By the way, if you’re lovin’ on these posters, you can order them and more from the artists themselves. Go to our digital edition, page 83, for the deets.
