Kanab Utah

Kanab

Known as "Little Hollywood," more than 100 movies have been filmed in Kanab. The town is centrally located between southern Utah's national parks and Lake Powell.

Kanab, Utah

Kanab derives its name from a Paiute word meaning, "willow." The town is like a Hollywood portrayal of the classic American West - towering Navajo sandstone cliffs and vistas of sagebrush. This scenery has lured filmmakers to Kanab for nearly 80 years. Abandoned film sets near town have become tourist attractions. The buildings all over town have plenty of movie posters and autographed photos to support Kanab's self-proclaimed title, "Little Hollywood."

Situated near the southern boundary of the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area, Kanab is a prime stop for major driving routes heading off in four directions accessing three national parks, three national monuments, several state parks, and a number of historic sites.

The Western Legends Roundup each summer draws people who enjoy the cowboy culture of the past and present, www.westernlegendsroundup.com. Best Friends Animal Society, five miles from Kanab in Angel Canyon, is the largest sanctuary for homeless animals in the country. Tours are available daily by calling (435) 644-2001, www.bestfriends.org

The Crescent Moon Theater features classic cowboy music and comedy in a Branson-style setting from mid-April through mid-December, (435) 644-2350, www.crescentmoontheater.com.

Family Fun Adventures
Best Friends Animal Society, the nation's largest sanctuary for homeless animals offers daily tours, (435) 644-2001, www.bestfriends.org.
