August 25th marks the Centennial of the Park Service, and since National Parks are known as America’s Great Invention, that’s certainly reason to celebrate 100 years!
When it comes to Utah, we know how to do National Parks in style.
Utah’s first national park was Zion National Park, created in 1919. But like many of Utah’s National Parks, it was first designated as a National Monument. Since then, Utah has 13 designated breathtaking national parks. Some of the favorites? Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef. From Bluff, it’s only a short 2 hours to Canyonlands and Arches National Parks. And don’t forget Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, also managed by the Park Service, where you can play on Lake Powell.
