United States Utah
Tips from the community
Midway, Utah is a charming town tucked in the valley of the mountains that you have to visit during your stay in Salt Lake City. Less than an hour away from Salt Lake City, this cute, cozy town has an abundance of hidden gems and must-sees! During the winter months, I certainly recommend planning a trip to the Ice Castles in Midway! During the summer months, a quick hike to Cascade Springs or Homestead Crater is an adventure you won't forget! ✈ Midway, Utah is often referred to as Utah's Swiss Alps because of the snow capped peaks and lush valleys – a mountain lover's dream!

- leah (Leah Fishman) If you're a fan of soaking in warm waters surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, then Utah's hot springs should definitely be on your bucket list. With so many options to choose from, you're sure to find one that fits your style, whether you're up for an adventurous hike to a secluded hot spring or just want to relax in a geothermal pool inside a limestone dome. Grab your swimsuit, lace up your hiking boots, and let's dive in.
- chiefseeker (Jody Vandergriff) I became a hot springs hunter last summer when I stumbled upon Wild Willy's Hot Springs in Mammoth Lake - a super remote pool surrounded by nothing but nature and a handful of strangers soaking in the sunset while sipping BYO-Beer. I had a "How am I just learning by this?" moment. I'm now on a quest to discover another Wild Willy's.
- paige (Paige Mesicek) The state of Utah certainly has no shortage of scenic views, charming mountain towns, and epic must-do's. Luckily, most of the dreamy destinations of Utah are only a day's trip away from Salt Lake City! While travelling, I made a point to search for all of the hidden gems, historical wonders, and backcountry secrets while staying true to the nature of the state. As I share these must-see locations, it is important to be mindful of nature – practice safe driving, leave no trace, and plan ahead of time! Even though these destinations require some drive time, it's important to remember that the adventure is in the journey and not just the destination! Turn up the radio, roll down the windows, and enjoy your travels to and from Salt Lake City!
