Why I Love Kanab

I was born and raised in Kanab, Utah. I have a strong pioneer heritage, being a fourth generation of the original settlers who founded the Kanab Township in 1870. When you wake up in the morning and walk outside, you are looking at the beautiful red hills and cliffs that surround us. So full of adventure, there is hiking, camping, and fishing, to name a few activities that are available in the area. Kanab is located near the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, the Pink Coral Sand Dunes state park, Lake Powell, Peek-a-boo Canyon, Bryce Canyon National Park, the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and the Dixie and Kaibab National Forests. All of these sightseeing, hiking, and outdoor adventures are within an hour or two from our front yards.

There is a strong sense of community here. Kanab has a wonderful city park located beneath the red cliffs with a skate park, public swimming pool, and splash pad, just to name a few. We are very service-oriented here in Kanab, being that people from all over the world come and stay here to visit the surrounding natural attractions in the area. I love living here. We enjoy all four seasons and all they have to offer.
