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:
- Zion National Park – 30 miles northwest
- Grand Staircase National Monument – 15 miles east
- Bryce Canyon National Park – 75 miles north
- Lake Powell – 70 miles east
- The Grand Canyon (North Rim) – 80 miles southeast
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.
