There may be sexier-sounding travel destinations — Istanbul? Cinque Terre? — but few can boast Kanab’s outdoor access and return on investment. (And if you got that red-rock fever, you’ll take Zion over the Blue Mosque at any price.)
Sitting on the southern border halfway between St. George and Lake Powell, Kanab is home base to a dozen Utah adventures. Easy access to Bryce Canyon’s evergreens & hoodoos or to Zion’s desert washes & bright blue skies.
Whether you’re visiting Utah or you’ve lived here for years and feel guilty about sights unseen, Kanab is the perfect place to set up shop and tick items off your bucket list. This Kanab scenery has lured filmmakers to Utah for nearly 80 years. The buildings all over town have plenty of movie posters and autographed photos to support Kanab’s self-proclaimed title, “Little Hollywood,” while abandoned film sets near town have become tourist attractions without becoming tourist traps.
