The state of Utah attracts a diverse lot. It welcomes skiers to the slopes of Deer Valley, and film lovers to Park City for the annual Sundance Film Festival. Utah has been home to Native Americans of the Anasazi, Ute, Navaho and Fremont tribes, early explorers from Spain, England and Mexico, and of course modern day Mormons. Now all it’s missing is you. Utah has stunning geological features and rock hounding is a popular pursuit here, with gemstones and mineral specimens in abundance throughout central Utah. At Arches National Park, attractions such as the Devil’s Garden, Delicate Arch and the Fiery Furnace dot the red desert. Monument Valley’s vast sandstone formations have attained iconic status as symbols of the rugged west. But Utah has attractions to suit less outdoorsy types as well, with an annual Shakespeare festival in Cedar City, and ballet, opera and symphony orchestras in Salt Lake City. Those with a desire to be pampered can take advantage of spas and resorts in Utah’s serene mountain settings. In Salt Lake City, the University of Utah Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence is one of 9 centers in the U.S. dedicated to producing leaders in field of geriatric nursing.
