Internet/WiFi connections in Southern Utah
« on: August 03, 2012, 01:16:55 AM »

This forum has lots of good advice on what to photograph in Southern Utah, but what about Internet connections?  Is there any place to stop and get a fix when traveling in an RV?

So far, we've only decided on visiting the Grand Canyon South Rim, Zion, Bryce, and Moab.

When the magnificent landscape no longer inspires, just look for that friendly "WiFi" sign at motels, restaurants, coffee shops, McDonalds, etc.  The key is having a wireless device.

Here's Utah seen in the WiFi spectrum of light.  Yes, even donut shops!

I guess this means the Internet is not on the list of things one tries to escape on vacations.

Thanks, that's great info.

p.s. There are a few things like route planning and camp site reservations that are simpler with Internet access.

Since you are going around the bend, why not the North Rim ? Much more peaceful.

We weren't able to reserve a campsite at the North Rim, so we may make it a day trip.

If you are still interested in the North Rim, i've had reasonable luck calling in between 3-4 pm for cancellations up to the day of.

In Moab you can drive from one side of town to the other on Main St. and pretty much never lose a wi-fi signal.  Some favorites: Love Muffin, the library, McDonalds, Zions Bank.
