The best family vacations are the ones that result in lifelong memories. Those memories are formed during unexpected bursts of laughter and the rush that comes after the thrill of an adventure. At Parry Lodge, we welcome families with children and we encourage parents to bring their kids to the natural playground of Southern Utah.
We believe that these are the best places to visit in Southern Utah with kids:
Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park
Your children will feel like they have been transported to another planet when you arrive at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. The pink sand mountains are unlike anything else that can be found in the world, and they make for the perfect place to play, run and jump. There's plenty of other activities to enjoy at the park as well, such as hiking, sandboarding, ATV rides and more. Children of all ages — as well as adults — will love spending the day at this park.
For young kids, cowboys and cowgirls are the stuff of dreams. Make their dreams come true by taking them to Little Hollywoodland in Kanab, where they can enjoy the Little Hollywood Museum. The museum features artifacts and information about the western movies that were filmed in Kanab. In addition, there's a chuckwagon restaurant on-site where children can dine like a real cowboy or cowgirl. Of course, you can't forget to head to the gift shop, where kids can find the perfect Native American souvenir to bring home from their vacation.
Zion National Park
Zion National Park has long been a family favorite, as it features many easy trails that are ideal for novice hikers. The Emerald Pools Trail is a network of trails that wind around the beautiful Emerald Pools, and the Weeping Rock Trail is a half-mile long paved path that leads to some of the most iconic sights in this park. There's plenty of photo opportunities for families who want to commemorate their trip to Utah!
