My wife and I are planning to visit Utah. We will absolutely be there February 27 Through March 2nd. My wife has a conference she is attending. We will be driving from Tallahassee, Florida (32 hours) and would like to turn this into an amazing trip. So what can we do in Utah? What about the surrounding states? Colorado, Wyoming, Montana? Ideally we will have around 19-10 days of exploring, this includes the convention days.
We enjoy authentic experiences and truly hate tourist traps. We lived in Japan for two years and not once visited Tokyo. To us the Tokyo experience is far removed from the Japan experience in the sense that it is an outlier of Japan and not the norm, but that is just our personal opinion. So on our trip we would like to experience local culture, enjoy unique or beautiful architecture, and explore nature. Our number one goal is to always be safe. As far as budget goes $2,000 to $3,000 for the entire trip. This has already taken into account gas for the car so no need to deduct that.
We can't wait to hear all the suggestions!
