Utah is a big state and there is so much to see. At nearly 85,000 square miles, Utah is the 13-largest state in the United States by area. For travelers that means lots of open space, breezy and well-maintained interstate highways around the state and a vibrant metropolitan corridor with great public transportation.
The best way to explore the state is to rent a car, though there are private shuttle and tour options. In the Wasatch Front urban corridor of Northern Utah there is great public transportation, including TRAX light rail, FrontRunner commuter rail and the UTA bus system.
The Utah Department of Transportation provides a free official state map. All vehicles should be equipped with this map and a Utah Travel Guide, provided by the Utah Office of Tourism. Request your Utah Travel Guide and maps here.
