"wide, open spaces" are a patchwork of scenic,
recreational, and historic venues. Nearly 80 percent of
the state is contained in blocks of land administered
for public use by federal and state agencies. These Utah
"parks" and "playgrounds" are enormous;
sprawling; unforgettable. With five national parks, seven
national monuments, two national recreation areas, a national
historic site, 45 state parks, and millions of acres of
forests, deserts and grasslands, Utah abundantly contains
some of the most beautiful creations under the skies.
Within this varied landscape are hidden treasures and
experiences that appeal to everyone-form the rugged, solitude-seeking
explorer to the family wanting a relaxing getaway. Utah
has something for everyone.
