Our Neighborhood: Kanab

Kanab is a pleasant, mid-sized town on Highway 89 that serves as a popular traveler’s stop. 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.

Kanab is surrounded by a unsurpassed collection of western scenery, lava flows, deep canyons, and desert mountains.

Kanab is conveniently and centrally situated among several major attractions in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona:

Kanab has also gained some fame for being the site of many western movies. It’s locally known a bit boastfully as “Little Hollywood.” 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.

Kanab is a good place to sleep and eat between National Park adventures and has plenty of accommodations and casual restaurants.
