We don’t generally encourage (just) doing it for the ‘Gram, but these pretty-as-a-picture Utah hotspots make it so damn easy. Get hash-tagging with one of the beautiful Beehive State’s must-sees. Because if you didn’t share it on Insta, did you even go?

1. Deer Valley Resort, Park City

Park City’s Deer Valley Resort offers all kinds of lodging options for chilling out, service that’s consistently ranked North America’s best and amazing skiing conditions (300 annual days of sunshine and an average of 30 centimetres of powder every five days) – making it perfect for both snow bunnies and social-media users alike.

2. Belly of the Dragon. Kanab

If you miss out on lottery tickets to The Wave consider visiting Kanab’s Belly of the Dragon. Hidden beneath Highway 89, this man-made cave was originally carved out to divert water. Today, however, the tunnel serves as an interesting spot to both hike and hashtag – the lighting helping create beautiful pics bound to give you butterflies in your stomach.

3. Zion National Park, Zion

It’s hard to take a bad picture at Utah’s first national park, but some of the best angles can be found at one of Zion’s many lookouts such as Observation Point and Angels Landing. And although the huge blood-red rock formations are stunning, it’s the small details are (such as the cave-like canyons) that are really worth a closeup.

4. Bryce Canyon National Park, Bryce

The dusty coloured hoodoos (rock spires) that fill the Bryce Amphitheatre in the national park by the same name, make BCNP an obvious photographer’s delight by day. However, away from the glare of the sun (and crowds!), it is an equally spectacular spot for sunrise and sunset snaps, or a long exposure shot at night.

5. The UP House, Herriman

The Real UP House sits just south of Salt Lake City. This colourful construction was designed in collaboration with Disney’s Pixar, and built as a replica to reflect the whimsical and eclectic residence in the popular animated movie by the same name. Balloons to transport you to Paradise Island may not be included, but this spot will certainly get your Insta likes, UP! .
