With beautiful skies, the solemn silence of nature, and gorgeous desert vistas with snow-capped mountains here and there, Southern Utah is a year-round beauty to visit, and a place where family unity is well appreciated. So, if you’re looking for good places for family reunions, this can be exactly what you’re looking for.
Here are 4 reasons that will convince you:
Lots of State Parks
Throughout Southern Utah, you’ll find Zion National Park and a lot of other State Parks that go all the way to the southeastern border, ready for you and your family to see, enjoy, and explore. Good places for family reunions must have good sights to see, and nothing says “beauty” like the unspoiled nature these parks have to offer.
Some of the most beautiful sights to be had in the United States are present in these parks, including Angel’s Landing and the Emerald Pools at Zion National Park, The trails south of the town of Kanab at Bryce Canyon, Escalante, Monument Valley, and many more locations waiting to be explored by your loved ones.
You won’t mind the winter as much when visiting Southern Utah with your family. Now, it can still be chilly, but nowhere near some other parts of the US you might be considering. While desert weather and the heat/chill variance is something to take seriously, plenty of people travel to Southern Utah in part to get away from the cold winter snow, no matter how iconic a snowy holiday can be.
If you really want to get away from the cold, you can go to Southwestern Utah and the areas around St George. There, you’ll be in the same weather system as Nevada, so your winter family reunion and thanksgiving can be a warm one done even during winter.
And, speaking of being near Nevada…
The thing about good places for family reunions is that they’re not only pleasant but also easy to get to for all members of an extended family. In this regard, Southwestern Utah has a privileged position as it is tucked right up next to Nevada, Arizona, and even has easy access to California.
On top of that, it’s a beautiful trip, especially if you’re visiting St George from Colorado, or traveling through the state from Idaho or Salt Lake City.
Lots of Outdoor Activities
Being a place so prolific in parks and natural recreation, outdoor family activities are a staple of southern Utah. Visiting the Lava Tubes at Snow Canyon State Park or hiking at Zion National parks are some of the most common, but you can also do so much more: Riding ATVs on Sand Hollow State Park and its miles of dunes, fishing and swimming at Quail Creek State Park, take an equestrian tour (riding horses, that is) at Snow Canyon State Park, and much more!
