Did you that Southern Utah has its very own art village? It’s called Coyote Gulch and it’s one of the area’s hidden gems. There are a number of galleries, a half-dozen studios, and gift and coffee shops that together form this little village. There’s even a couple of spas. Coyote Gulch is tucked away in [...]

If you’re a mountain biker, then you know there’s nothing like riding through the rough terrain of some unspoiled landscape. And if you know Southern Utah, then you know that the wide expanse of desert scenery is that unspoiled landscape.

Winter is fast arriving in Southern Utah. Which as we may have mentioned before, shouldn’t spoil your fun. But maybe you’re not up for skiing at Brian Head, or snowmobiling at Fish Lake, maybe you just want to hang out in the sun for a week. If that’s the case, we suggest a golf vacation [...]

Summer is officially over. And that’s good news for all you travelers, because autumn is the best time to vacation in Southern Utah. That’s our opinion, anyway. But we’ve got some pretty good reasons to back that claim up. First, there are fewer people in the national parks. Which means that you can explore in [...]

You know about Goblin Valley - we’ve mentioned it once or twice on this blog - but did you know that Goblin Valley State Park is actually part of a larger geological area called the San Rafael Swell?
