What Utah Offers to Tourists - Utah Real Estate -

In 1896, Utah was admitted as the 45th state to join the United States. Since that time the Utah Real Estate market has seen much growth. With a blend of tourism and beautiful landscapes, the state has become a great tourist destination. In Layton Utah, Homes are within perfect distance to many of the greatest attractions the state has to offer. However, any discussion of tourism in this area must start with the national parks.

Bryce Canyon National Park is a huge divot carved out of the Earth by nature in the southwest corner of the state. Also, in the southwest, Zion National Park offers wonderful hiking trails and spellbinding rock formations. Canyonlands National park in the southeast corner offers immense canyons with white water rafting fueled by the Colorado and Green rivers. One of the most photographed areas is Arches National Park in the eastern portion of Utah. This park is populated by massive sandstone arches that have been formed over thousands of years. Then, finally, in the center to the south of the state is Capitol Reef National Park. This park is home to a bevy of hiking trails and natural bridges and arches.

It would seem that Utah Real Estate would revolve around canyons and rock formations. That is, however, a misnomer. Layton Utah homes are also close to the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. With this draw come some of the best ski resorts the United States can offer including Park City, the home of the United States Ski Team and the highly acclaimed Deer Valley Resort. These resorts are close enough to Salt Lake City to allow access but far enough to feel like you are on vacation.

If you like cultural attractions the Sundance Film Festival and the Shakespearean Festival are excellent bets. Sundance is held at the Sundance resort in Provo, Utah. This festival has gained worldwide recognition for its concentration on independent films and their craftsmen. The Shakespearean Festival is held in Cedar City in the south and offers dramas by the Bard of Avon and others. Either festival is sure to fit the bill for any artistic flair.

The final two pieces of Utah Real Estate that tourists should visit are opposites. The Bonneville Salt Flats are vast open 'plains' of salt. This area is famous for the testing of the speed barrier that occurs here whenever brave souls want to test their mettle. Speeds in excess of 600 mph have been recorded here. Just to the east of the salt flats, is the Great Salt Lake. This natural wonder is more than likely a living remnant of what once occurred at the flats. The Great Salt Lake is home to wildlife and its high salt concentration will buoy even the most helpless floater.

Layton Utah Homes are close to some of the greatest attractions in the Western United States. The only thing a tourist has to do explore these wonders is take the time to come to Utah.
