Your Summertime Suggestions On Monday's Access Utah

  It’s Summertime! The kids are out of school and life slows down for some of us and speeds up for others. Trips to favorite vacation spots and into the backcountry ramp up. On Monday’s Access Utah, we’ll come together as a UPR community to share ideas for summertime trips, activities, traditions and stories.

Julie Hollist Terrill, director of the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau, will join us to talk about arts venues, hikes, campsites, vacations, staycations, fun and adventure.

We’d love to know your fun plans and suggestions for great summertime activities or your favorite summertime traditions or stories. Email us right now to

We’ll also talk with Tom Adams, Director of the Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation; Emily Moench, Public Relations Manager for the Utah Office of Tourism; and David Wicai, folk arts specialist from the Utah Division of Arts & Museums.
