City of Kanab

Kanab is the commercial center of a large farming, ranching and recreational community. The city of Kanab, county seat of Kane County, is often called “Little Hollywood” because of its film-making history over the years.

This town of 4,300 sits at the hub of the southwest’s national parks and offers exciting vacation opportunities year round. Kanab is located seven miles north of the Arizona border on U.S. Alternate 89, and is centrally located between Las Vegas, NV, Phoenix, AZ, Albuquerque, NM, Denver, CO and Salt Lake City, UT.

Kanab is surrounded by a variety of western geologic scenery ranging from coral pink cliffs and sand dunes, volcanic craters and lava flows to deep canyons, majestic mountains and plains. The natural beauty and consistently good weather of the Kanab area has made it a popular place to visit. Kanab is considered a popular hub location for visits to Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon National Parks, Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument and Lake Powell NRA (National Recreational Area). Other close-by national monuments and colorful state parks make Kanab a natural center with quality services for a week-end-get-away or an extended vacation to experience these exciting destinations and typical “Southwestern” recreational activities.
