With the growing popularity of Death Valley National Park, a new destination marketing organization known as Destination: Death Valley Junction has been created. Ironically, Death Valley Junction, just east of the national park, has a population of fewer than four people but features both natural and man-made places to become immersed in the landscape, 19 bookable lodging properties and various tour options.

Stargazing, photography, hiking, exploring and wildflower viewing are among the most popular activities, and The Oasis at Death Valley, the region’s largest resort, and the National Park Service have taken measures to greatly minimize area light pollution. Because of this, Death Valley National Park is designated as a Gold Tier Dark Sky Park, the highest level awarded by the International Dark Sky Association. 

San Antonio wholesale grocer Edward Franz Melcher opened Hotel Havana in 1914 as a guest house for his customers. Melcher infused the building with a tropical allure through the use of Mediterranean Revival architecture. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is located on the River Walk. In 2010, it came under the ownership of the hospitality organization Bunkhouse.

 

Highline, a 116-room modern mountain resort, opened its doors in west Vail just in time for the 2019/2020 ski season. An elevated cabin-in-the woods aesthetic flows throughout the property, from the A-frame communal lobby and restaurant to cozy guest rooms and spacious loft suites. The interior features weathered woods, slate and leather accents in a palette of soothing neutrals and region- ally inspired art and fixtures.

 

Getting to Utah’s capital city will be even faster, easier and sleeker with the opening of the first phase of the new Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) in September, the first new hub airport to be built in the United States in the 21st century. The $3.6 billion project has two phases, with the South Concourse opening in 2020 and the North Concourse set to launch in 2024.
