A Complete Guide to a Utahn Spring Break for Non-Skiiers

While vacationing in Utah is typically associated with skiing, snowboarding, or mountain biking, the state has numerous tourist hotspots worth exploring, especially in the spring. At the tail end of the skiing season, there is usually still enough snow in the mountains to get a solid day or two in the snow, and the heat of summer hasn't taken hold over the arid desert areas of the state.  The compromise of a spring visit ensures that a seven day trip to the state will have plenty for everyone.

When my sister visited us in Las Vegas, we made sure that she got the best that Nevada - and California - had to offer her within that one week, and we wanted to make her trip to Utah just as amazing.  Flying in Friday night, and leaving the following Saturday evening gave us roughly seven days to explore as much of the state as possible without completely losing the relaxation that should accompany every vacation.  Our itinerary focused a little more heavily on the domestic and cultural aspects of the state than the rugged outdoors, but can serve as a starting point for anyone unsure of what they want to do when they visit.

So, here are ten must-do items for every new Las Vegas resident.
