How To Experience Utah Virtually
A round-up of virtual experiences so travellers can stay home, yet stay inspired.
During this season of social distancing and staying safe at home, the Utah Office of Tourism has created a round-up of virtual experiences to bring the outdoors, arts and culture, and more to travellers at home. Whether with kids, pets or solo, future visitors to Utah can experience the state virtually, feeling that jolt of Utah-inspiration run wild inside.
What’s even better is these places, spaces and people are real and are ready – when the world is ready – for visitors to come and really see. Until then, armchair travellers can browse this collection of ongoing virtual experiences and discover that an adventure (or two) is not limited to walking out the door, but is attainable by pressing play.
