Summer, in Utah, starts in June. During this time, you can say goodbye to the cold breeze that makes your hand shiver. It’s also an ideal time to engage in fun outdoor activities. You can embark on activities, such as joining Zion natural park tours. If you are thinking of other things to do during this season (on top of joining these wonderful tours), keep these things in mind.
Hiking or Mountaineering
Utah has so many mountain ranges. A few of them are the Wasatch Mountains, Uinta Mountains, and Wellsville Mountains.
The world is nothing short of beautiful mountains to conquer. If you are one of those individuals that want to enjoy a day out with Mother Nature, you can enjoy hiking or a mountaineering trip to a local destination or out-of-town adventure.
Swimming at or Going to the Beach
Thinking of hitting the water during the summer? Utah has a few beaches that you can visit. A couple of them are Rendezvous Beach at Bear Lake and Bridger Bay Beach at Antelope Island State Park.
Undeniably, these activities will always be the first thing that’ll pop in your mind when you think of summer. There’s nothing more that says relaxation than being submerged in a fresh body of water and staring up at the blue sky.
Have Fun at an Amusement Park
If you want to have a blast visiting theme parks, Utah has a few of them, including Evermore Park, Lagoon Amusement Park, and Cherry Hill. This summer, you can look forward to riding the roller coaster (or doing other theme park-related stuff). After checking out all the attractions, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy ice cream on a hot, sunny day.
Fishing in a nearby Lake
Utah has great fishing spots. Logan River, Fish Lake, Green River, and Provo River are just some of the great bodies of water that are ideal for both fly fishing and spinning.
Some of the best bonding moments happen during an intimate conversation with friends and family members over a bottle of beer while waiting for a fish to take a bite out of the bait. Remember, patience is the key in fishing, much like how life is.
Picnics, Barbecues, and Camping
Who wouldn’t want to watch the night sky fill up with stars while you are with the presence of your friends and family? You can always tour a camping site and set-up for a picnic, enjoy barbecues with other families in the area, and sleep while nature embraces you in its authenticity.
Watch the Sunrise or the Sunset
This may come out straight from a movie scene, but nothing gets better than being able to stargaze, witness the golden hour, and watch the gradient colors of a sunrise while the sea breeze envelopes you in gladness.
If you are an adrenaline junkie and you really want to experience nature at its rawest form, take an adventure of your life and try kayaking through the rapids.
These are the outdoor activities you can do during the summer. Remember, summer only happens once a year, so make the most of it.
