Beaver

Like many rural towns in central and southern Utah, Beaver often goes unnoticed as travelers whiz by along Interstate 15. But Beaver City, 200 miles south of Salt Lake City and 210 miles north of Las Vegas, sits on the northern edge of Utah's spectacular Color Country. Surrounding attractions include Minersville Reservoir State Park, as well as many locations for hiking, rock-hounding, fishing, hunting, ATV adventures, snowmobiling, backpacking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and plenty of scenic vistas.
