The weather is warming up quickly here in Kanab, Utah. Now through the end of May the weather is just about perfect for hiking, mountain biking, and riding ATVs. The warm afternoons are great for swimming in the pool and the cool evenings are great for soaking in the hot tub. We absolutely love this time of year in southern Utah.
This is a great time for families to escape for a weekend getaway or a spring break and explore all the magical canyons and rock formations that the Kanab area has to offer. Just north of Kanab is Zion and Bryce Canyon National Park that are perfect for families looking to hike and explore some of the most beautiful red rock areas in the world. Also, north of Kanab is Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park which is one of the best sand dunes in the western United States to drive ATVs and explore some amazing dunes.
