Visiting Kanab? Check this out.

We live in one of the coolest areas in the United States.  During your visit to Best Friends it would be worth it to take an afternoon to one of the national parks.  Click here to get great information about things to see and do in and around Kanab, Utah.  There were many movies filmed here in Kanab and you can visit the old Gunsmoke movie set. If you are flying into Las Vegas you can take a shuttle to St. George, rent a car and drive the hour and a half to Kanab or just rent a car in Las Vegas and drive the 3.5 hours to Kanab.  I've taken the shuttle many times but I have not rented a car in St. George.  I have also flown from Houston, Texas to Page, Arizona and had someone pick me up in Page.  It is only an hour and fifteen minutes from Kanab and there is a car rental right at the airport.  The code for Page airport is PGA.  There is no bus service or taxi service in Kanab but there is a car rental.  If you are coming for a workshop at Best Friends it might be possible to car pool to Kanab and rent additional cars when you arrive.
If you are like me and need to workout every day to be...nice...we have a great fitness center called Adobe Fitness.

Zion National Park is one of my favorite parks and it is 30 miles from Kanab.  It is beautiful and has many hikes.
Toroweap/Grand Canyon

Bryce Canyon is about 79 miles from Kanab. It is amazing and has crazy rock formations.  It is usually a bit cooler than Kanab so it is a nice summer day trip.

Hiking in Kanab at Best Friends.

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is also 79 miles from Kanab.  It is spectacular and has a nice lodge to eat at.  Toroweap is also a great way to see the Grand Canyon.

The Coral Pink Sand Dunes are really close to Best Friends and are worth a visit. There is also the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument as well as the following nearby. 

Lake Powell is in Page Arizona which is 75 miles from Kanab and it is beautiful.  The blue water against the red rocks is stunning.  You can swim at Lone Rock or take a half or full day river ride.  Antelope Point is also a really neat slot canyon tour.

Kannaraville Falls is a bit off the beaten path but is AMAZING!
