A gateway to Utah's west desert. Once the delta of ancient Lake Bonneville, today the aptly-named city of Delta is known as a base camp for exploring the Little Sahara Sand Dunes and the West Desert. With a little imagination, you might even imagine the massive seas covering the wide-open expanses in the area.

Delta is an excellent home base for rockhounding in the Great Basin and riding off-highway vehicles (OHVs). Others use Delta as a stopping point on the way to Great Basin National Park, visiting town to see the Great Basin and Topaz Museums, Fort Deseret and the old Van’s Dance Hall. But Delta’s most outlandish claim to fame might be its 2007 Guinness World Record: a 3,841-person bunny hop.
