The Shooting Star Saloon in Huntsville, Utah, is the oldest continuously operating bar in the state, and a quirky stop to enjoy a delicious burger and a cold beer.

When visiting Moab, Utah, near Arches National Park, Jeffrey’s Steakhouse offers premium American Wagyu beef, fantastic service, and ghostly tales.
