Things to do within 250 miles of UT

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm putting together a book of family-friendly things to do within a reasonable drive (say a day's drive or so - 14 hrs?) of UT or within UT. I know stuff to the west, but not much to the east.

So far I have:
Bean Museum - BYU
Great Salt Lake
Thanksgiving Point
Hogle Zoo
This is the Place
Arches NP
Capital Reef NP
Zion's NP
Lake Powell
Utah Lake
Temple Square and other LDS sites
ski sites

Disneyland
Sea World
San Diego Zoo

even small places would help! And inexpensive places would be great, too. Please list for me! Thanks!

Grand Canyon
4 Corners
Lake Powell
Valley of Fire
Big Rock Candy Mountain
Moab
Timpanogas
Great Salt Lake
Flaming Gorge
Dinosaur Ntl. Monument
Coral Pink Sand Dunes

If you go to www thingstodo (dot) com and search by State, there are some ideas there too.

Hope that helps a little!

Bryce Canyon NP
Tracy Aviary in SLC
Red Rock Canyon (by Las Vegas)
the Salt Flats (just don't go in the heat of summer, it smells too much)

I'll post more when I have a bit more time to think, but those were the ones we've enjoyed that I didn't see posted yet.
