By Alyssa Ochs,  Trips to Discover -- Weekend getaways in Utah introduce you to otherworldly landscapes, maximize your time in the great outdoors, and embody a sense of adventure. This Mountain West destination is a favorite playground for people all across the region and a wonderful place to disconnect from the stresses of life and soak up the beauty that surrounds you. To see for yourself what we mean, plan to take some of these weekend getaways in Utah this year.

Salt Lake City 
Utah’s capital city of Salt Lake City is a hub for adventure with skiing, arts and culture, and family-friendly entertainment on offer. The city is always busy with lots going on, yet not too crowded or stressful to navigate. Spend your weekend here touring Temple Square, watching a Broadway show at the Eccles Theater, or watching a football game of the Utah Utes. Come here to learn about local Mormon history, study your own genealogy, and enjoy the nature of all four seasons. The nearby Wasatch Mountains are an ideal place for weekend recreation via hiking, boating, and fishing.
