Honeymoon Idea: Southern Utah


Sometimes, I forget the vast and varying beauty that we have right here in Utah.  From the mountains to the red rock and everything in between, we are truly blessed to live in a place with such epic natural beauty - whether it be a short jaunt away or right out our back door.  Because of this, I felt like it was high time to suggest an AMAZING honeymoon option for our many couples that we at Culinary Crafts are so lucky to work with that is close to home, yet a world away.  Where am I thinking, you may ask?  Well, Southern Utah of course!  It is such a GORGEOUS place to visit with so many places to go, that it is truly a wonderful place for a honeymoon - or even a romantic retreat for your anniversary or just a relaxing getaway.  In fact, our very own Mary Crafts-Homer and her hubby, Rick, recently celebrated their 2nd anniversary at The Lodge at Red River Ranch in Torrey, Utah!  Check it out!
