I love Utah I love Utah I love Utah. & out west! I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in the east coast and I love exploring new places, or if out west is actually better than the east… but all I know is I’m in love with the beauty and adventure that Utah and the Western United States has to offer. The fact that Ryan and I will most likely be leaving Utah in the next year to year in a half is already making me sentimental! To make the most out of this year, I decided to create a Utah Bucket List of things we want to see and do before our time our West is likely over. 🙁
The Bucket List
Here’s a list of things we haven’t done out west (mostly in Utah but a few other awesome places we’ve heard about as well!). I know there’s tons and tons more to see, and I would love to hear any suggestions you have.
- See all the national parks in Utah (Canyonlands & Capitol Reef to go!
- Hike the Narrows in Zion National Park
- Go to the Grand Canyon
- Camp out at Havasupai in the Grand Canyon
- Hike the Y
- Ski Deer Valley
- Find an epic hill to go sledding
- Stargaze at Bryce Canyon
- Midway Swiss Days
- Check out Lake Powell
- Glacier National Park
- Chase & see the Northern Lights!
Epic Things We Have Done In Utah, that should go on everyone’s bucket list
Here’s some amazing things we’ve done over our past year in Utah, that we believe should be on everyone’s bucket list!
1.Hike Mt. Timpanogas
It’s a killer hike, but a must-do! I felt so hard-core, climbing my way to the top and making it to the pillbox. We camped out near the top and then hiked the rest of the way, which was a tiring, amazing, and unforgettable experience we still speak about today.
2. Skiing at Park City
Go big or big home, right 😉 We think so. We’ve had season passes to Park City for 2 years now, and this place can’t be beaten. It’s the snow is awesome, and there’s so much terrain you’ll never get bored.
3. Sandboarding at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park
This hidden gem is such an epic spot. Check out the blog post to learn more!
4. Hike Angel’s Landing
Not for those who are scared of heights- but a thrilling hike nonetheless.
5. Visit Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Arches National Park
6. Went to LA
7. Stargazed out in the middle of nowhere
8. Bridal Veil Falls/Provo Canyon
9. Temple Square
This place is beautiful throughout the entire year, but especially at Christmas!
10. GoKarting at K1 Speed
It’s gokarting, but the extreme version with a booster that’ll bring you above 40 mph in seconds!
11. A full day of fun at Utah Olympic State Park
12. Historic Park City
13. Fifth Water Hot Springs
Utah is a great place, and I’m happy to call it home, even if it’s not for much longer. Comment below anything you’d like to do in Utah or anything we should add to the Bucket List!
