Top LGBTQIA+ Things to Do

Whether your chosen venue for experiencing Utah is solitude among the mountains and red rocks or dining and drinks among friends — here, there is a place and countless venues for everyone. It’s a daunting task to count the spaces to hike, bike, shop, ski, eat — or with all-things-Utah in mind, to be inspired.
 
And of course, don’t miss Salt Lake City. You might be surprised to learn that a larger percentage of Salt Lake City’s population self-identifies as gay than Los Angeles. Utah's capital is indeed one of the 10 gayest cities in the country, according to a recent Gallup poll. It ranked No. 7 with 4.7 percent of its people identifying as gay. If you’re surprised, you haven’t spent enough time in this gay-friendly town, known for both a hip urban atmosphere and easy access to the great outdoors.

Away from it All

Many stop by Cedar Breaks National Monument to peer into its colorful amphitheater. Separate yourself from the crowd by arriving early and racing the sunrise to the Ramparts. Later, drop deep into the backcountry of Bryce Canyon’s spire-filled basin, where few tourists ever venture — an amphitheater of peace. Then, at night, admire the stars in the pristine darkness of Bryce Canyon’s 9,000-foot elevation.
