By utilizing Utah’s public holidays in 2018, you will afford yourself maximum time to explore the “Beehive State” during a weekend getaway.
Utah will have as many as seven extended weekends due to holidays in 2018, including national holidays like New Year’s Day and Christmas Day and Eve. And Utah also has a unique holiday called “Pioneer Day” on July 24th. Pioneer Day commemorates the arrival of the first Mormon settlers in Utah in 1847 and is observed with reenactments, fireworks, and rodeos.
Things to see and do in Utah in 2018
Here are some popular destinations to consider visiting during your holiday weekend spent in Utah in 2018:
Arches National Park, where over a million people come annually to see over 2,000 rock arches in the Utah desert. The arches are highly varied, and you can climb on some of them. Additionally, you will encounter interesting desert plant and animal life.
Bryce Canyon National Park, where again you can see numerous rock formations, this time set in the midst of a large, bowl-shaped depression. Especially look for the “hoodoos,” and climb Navajo mountain for a 100-mile look into the distance.
Monument Valley Park, where you can see the very same stark, rugged rock formations you likely have already seen in old Western films. The scenic drive, the Navajo cuisine and crafts, and the old Goulding trading post are the main attractions.
