Cheap flights to Utah

Utah is a landlocked American state located in the west of the United States, bordered by Neva-da, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho. The Beehive State is characterised by rough, rugged terrains that bear a wild, untamed sort of beauty - expect majestic canyons, golden deserts, gaping gorges, sand dunes, the Rocky Mountains and more natural formations over Utah’s 85,000 square miles of space. Besides its unconventional rugged beauty, Utah is also known as a Mormon state due to its status as the centre of the Christian religious movement - the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS). Of the state’s population of about 2 million, more than 50% subscribe to the LDS’ beliefs and are considered Mormons.

The state’s cute nickname (Beehive state) is also largely due to its Mormon history - led to Utah’s arid, desert lands by LDS leader Brigham Young in the 1800s, the first Mormon settlers in Utah had to work hard to survive in the harsh terrain and named it the ‘Deseret State’, ‘Deseret’ being a beehive in the Book of Mormon. The beehive was subsequently adopted as a state symbol re-presenting hard work and industry as Utahn characteristic traits.

Getting around

As with most US states, the best way to get around Utah is by car; the entire region is road-trip-friendly, with an extensive network of well-developed scenic highways and roads and plenty of amazing scenery along the way. For those who’d prefer not to helm their own vehicle, light rails are available for speedy inter-city transport between the state’s major urban areas.

Otherwise, the ubiquitous long-distance Greyhound buses are also readily available.

What to see and do

Utah is an outdoor lover’s wet dream come true - the state has a grand total of 5 beautiful na-tional parks (making it the state with the 3rd most number of national parks in the United States), 7 national monuments, 8 national forests and 2 national recreation areas.

If you’ve only got time to explore 1 of this impressive number of attractions, Zion National Park might possibly be most worth your while. A snapshot of the park could double as an artist’s im-pression of paradise, complete with cascading waterfalls, dramatic striated rock cliffs, fertile val-leys, gaping canyons, lush greenery, rushing rivers and much, much more. The Park is an impres-sive 590 square kilometres in area, and is covered with hiking trails, bike paths, tubing rivers, and climbing walls to satisfy an outdoor enthusiast’s every whim and fancy.
