I love Kanab Utah, everyone here knows each other and are kind to one another. Since our town is so small we know all our teachers on a more personal level, its nice to know they care about you and your education. Basically, you can call everybody your neighbor since we all live so close. Kanab Utah is the place to be!

Grew up in Kanab. It's a beautiful area, but I wouldn't live there again if you paid me. Unless you're extremely conservative, you'll find it difficult. VERY conservative Mormon population.
Kanab is a small town that is fueled by tourism. It is a central location to several National Parks, including; Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, The North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and Lake Powell. Kanab is a gem hidden among the red cliffs of Utah.
