Getting Around

At nearly 85,000 square miles, Utah is the 13-largest state in America by area but only the 35th largest in population. Most of Utah's population is found along the Wasatch Front, in Northern Utah. 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.
