Today, I’m very excited to announce that Utah is officially orange on the Trekaroo map!  In celebration, we’re having a whole week of fun features and giveaways centered around Utah. We’re also offering a limited time Utah Rewards offer to kick things off. So help us get the word out about all the launch festivities by sharing with your friends on Facebook.

There are several reasons why this launch is particularly exciting for Trekaroo.  First, Utah is truly a beautiful state boasting some of our nation’s most beautiful National Parks including Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Arches.  With a varied terrain of stunning mountains, stately plateaus, and unique geological formations, Utah is the outdoor family’s playground.  Utah’s other iconic attractions for families also include Temple Square, Thanksgiving Point, and Dinosaur National Monument.  Oh, and have I not mentioned that winter time brings some of the best powdery snow to Utah? Park CityCanyonsAltaSnowbirdBrightonSolitude are all ski resorts where the best kind of family memories are made.  The list of kid friendly adventures seem quite endless, but a good place to start your bucket list is right here: Utah’s Top 10 Things to Do for Families.

Second, what’s got me really excited about this launch are the families who represent Utah on Trekaroo.  This launch was a 100% grassroots effort of families who love to explore and share all the wonderful kid-friendly things to do in Utah.  Who benefits from the inside scoop on of the best activities, hotels and restaurants this state has to offer?  All of us travel happy families looking for new destinations to discover with our kids!

Leading the charge is Ann Anderson (akeisel), Utah’s Destination Guroo extraordinaire.  Born and raised in Utah and a mom to 3 kids, she is a wealth of knowledge with great advice on everything kid friendly in Utah.  However, since Trekaroo isn’t about one person’s advice, I’d like to acknowledge the 160 founding families who have contributed through their reviews to making Utah launch ready.

    Congrats on going orange, Utah! There are so many incredible places to visit all across the state. Thanks to the advice posted on Trekaroo, I’ll be able to explore new areas with confidence.

    Yes! Utah is amazing. I live in southern Utah, right by Zion National Park and I love when people discover our spectacular state.
