An upscale, comfort-camping experience is what Conestoga Ranch at Utah’s Bear Lake in Garden City is all about. Officially opened on July 1, the 18-acre resort can host up to 160 guests in eight high-end glamping tents with en suite bathrooms featuring hot showers and 16 custom- crafted conestogas, more commonly known as covered wagons. Resort ameni- ties include a main lodge with a restaurant and bar, game tent, bath house, Shake Shack and activities field. Live entertain- ment, rodeos and equipment rentals such as paddleboards and other water recre- ation equipment promise to keep everyone having fun.

Conestoga Ranch is a collaborative effort between five partners, who also established Canvas & Company just south of Garden City to manufacture and sell tents and wagons like those at the resort. 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
