Utah has the best outdoor playground in the world!

We've been lucky throughout the pandemic that we had access to such amazing places in all areas of the state.

That includes year-round golf courses, 15 ski resorts that also offer summer activities and 44 state parks.

We talked with Steven Lisonbee, Senior Adviser for Rural Affairs in the Governor's Office. He serves as the point person for the administration's rural outreach.

Lisonbee reminded us to not forget about everything rural counties have to offer, including dining, entertainment or even ways to connect with the agriculture industry.

That's what the #InUtah campaign is all about! Lisonbee says it builds on Life Elevated and is really about Utahns connecting with Utahns.

As we see the light at the end of the pandemic trouble, let's be aware of some of those rural businesses that could use our support when we're planning day trips or other types of staycations.
