Presidents’ Day Weekend is here, and there is plenty to see in Southeastern Utah! As an added bonus, this weekend is also fee free for National Parks. Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, as well as Hovenweep and Natural Bridges National Monument are all stunning testaments to the abundant beauty and landscapes in the area. If you happen to be making your way down to the Grand Canyon, Hovenweep and Natural Bridges are great stops along the way, and lasting tributes to past cultures that have made this desert home.

Ever wondered what it’s like on Mars? Then take a hike through the red-rock country of Arches National Park. Care to experience how a teeny-tiny ant feels? Then visit the vast network of geology in Canyonlands National Park. Dying to know what inspired tribes of the past to build dwellings and art of ? Hovenweep and Natural Bridges are the places for you. The fee free days are being offered as initiative to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty of America’s National Parks this year. Get out and see what makes this area so special, for free!
