Kanab is in a great location with access to three National Parks. Kanab is about 90 miles to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, about 40 miles to Zion National Park, and about 80 miles to Bryce Canyon National Park. In town there is the Frontier Movie Town Movie Set Museum and within 20 miles there is the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, and the Pipe Spring National Monument. So Kanab is a sightseers paradise but now for the rest of the story.
Kanab is a small town of about 3500 so there are no Wal-Mart locations or any stores you might recognize. When we started out this years journey that was appealing but it has kind of worn out its welcome. What made the other remote locations better was the local dining options. If we could not get to a cheap grocery store like Wal-Mart then we could eat out. Both of us searched multiple times for a good dining option but came up empty. The place most mentioned by other park residents and online was Houston's Trails' End Restaurant and we tried it for lunch and got below average food with above average surliness from the wait staff. Our best dining was the lunch buffet at Lotsa Motsa Pizza and that should tell you all you need to know about Kanab dining.
To be fair probably the two best places to eat in town were open at 5p but you know us full-timers don't like to be out after dark.
So Kanab is a great location just bring your food with you.
Till next time,
