Utah's been blessed with seven national monuments and several areas we define as landmarks (super cool places that you should visit). These are like National Parks Express. Not quite as extensive, but still briefly intensive. And they’re packed tightly enough between national parks and lots of other Utah attractions that it’s not an either/or situation.
Sneak Peek of a few of Utah's National Monuments
Bears Ears National Monument
See the House on Fire ruins in Bears Ears National Monument and so much more.
Cedar Breaks National Monument
Situated at an elevation of 10,000 feet, Cedar Breaks is shaped like a giant coliseum dropping 2,000 feet to its floor.
Zebra slot canyon in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
Don’t have the energy for the politically divisive national monuments? Stick with this uncontroversially beautiful one, with its extraordinary red rock buttes, blue sky and golden sunsets.

Rainbow Bridge National Monument
Rainbow Bridge, on the edge of Lake Powell, is the largest natural bridge in the world at 290 feet/88 meters tall and 270 feet/83 meters across. Rainbow Bridge is considered sacred by the Navajo culture as a symbol of deities responsible for creating clouds, rainbows and rain - the essence of life in the desert.
