Facts

When to visit:

Outdoor adventure is the name of the game in Utah, and there’s something for everyone all year round. Summer is the biggest tourist season, with the height of the season falling from June to September, with an extended fall season lasting to October when hunting season begins. Global warming has extended the so-called “shoulder” seasons, so that spring and fall stays warmer longer. Winter is almost as popular thanks to the excellent winter sports opportunities, like skiing.
