The Best Utah Family Vacation Destinations

It may seem like the days of the wild American West are long gone, but much of that same adventurous spirit lives on in Utah. Families who need a bit of fresh air and who are craving a thrilling trip amid the backdrop of some of the most stunning canyons in the country should spend their next vacation in the great state of Utah.

These are the best Utah family vacation destinations:

Lake Powell

Stretching along the border between Utah and Arizona, Lake Powell is a favorite among families who want to vacation in Utah. This Colorado River reservoir provides more than fresh water to the region, it also provides people with an opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves on the water. To live lake life to the fullest, consider booking a houseboat for your Utah family vacation. Antelope Point Marina is located on Lake Powell and can help you find a houseboat that will meet all of your needs.

Arches National Park

Families who love to spend time outdoors will find that Arches National Park is the ideal Utah family vacation destination. This park contains rock formations that cannot be discovered anywhere else in the world. It is home to more than 2,000 natural arches that have formed in the rocks over thousands upon thousands of years. It’s a great place to hike, wander and get lost in the beauty of Utah.


Kanab is located in the heart of Southern Utah and provides families with unique opportunities to enjoy nearby national parks as well as experience the history of the town itself. Not far from Kanab are two famous national parks in Utah — Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. In addition, families can learn more about the western films that were shot in Kanab by visiting the Frontier Town and Little Hollywood Movie Museum.  

The possibilities for your Utah family vacation are endless. From red rock canyons to hoodoos that reach toward the sky and lakes that stretch as far as the way can see, there’s something for everyone here.
