Scenic, Kanab Utah is central to all of Southern Utah’s parks, monuments and natural wonders such as Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon North Rim, Lake Powell and many other local attractions such as,Western Legends Round-Up, Greyhound Gathering, Moqui Cave, Coral Pink Sand Dunes and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.
The Grand Canyon National Park (North Rim) is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World; the Grand Canyon shows an impressive display of erosion and mother earth’s natural beauty. Stretching for 277 miles, the Grand Canyon ranges from 2,400 feet to over 7,000 feet above sea level. The breathtaking beauty of the Grand Canyon is enjoyable for all who visit.
Zion National Park with its myriad of sandstone hues is a world class destination. Monoliths rising thousands of feet above the valley floor make Zion National Park a must see. Walking trails take visitors to hidden recesses, thick foliage grottos and waterfalls.
Bryce Canyon National Park is named for just one of many canyons which form a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters on the edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Erosion has carved colorful Claron limestones into thousands of spires, fins, arches and mazes. Collectively called “hoodoos,” these unique formations are whimsically arranged and tinted with colors too numerous and subtle to name
Lake Powell offers nearly 2000 miles of coastline to be explored by boat. Guided tours of Lake Powell are offered or you may rent your own boat or houseboat and explore the winding canyons filled with the clear waters of the Colorado River. The recreation area stretches hundreds of miles from Lees Ferry in Arizona to the Orange Cliffs of southern Utah, encompassing scenic vistas, geologic wonders, and a panorama of human history.
Coral Pink Sand Dunes just 30 miles from Kanab is a wide-sweeping expanse of coral colored sand, drifted into dunes. You can hike, camp, or ride ATV and dune buggies.
Best Friends Animal Sanctuary located five miles north of Kanab in Angel’s Canyon resides the home of thousands of rescued animals at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. This no-kill clinic is one of the biggest in the country and well-known throughout the world. Volunteers travel thousands of miles for the opportunity to contribute to the mission of the great non-profit organization. One of its latest rescues included all of the abandoned and injured dogs and cats victimized by Hurricane Katrina.
