A Bit About Us
Davis County is home to a rich history, diverse activities and unique scenery. It might be the smallest county in landmass, but we are the third most populated county in Utah. We got our name from the early pioneer lelmader, Daniel C. Davis, and were established as a territory in 1850. Just two short years later, we officially became a county in this great state.
We’re only 20 minutes, depending on traffic, north of Salt Lake County International Airport, making Utah’s amusement capital super convenient because it’s like we’re just down the road!
You might be saying, “Amusement Capital, what does that mean?” Well, this area has been filled with fun and amusement from the beginning. The famous, family-owned Lagoon Amusement Park has been thrilling visitors since it opened in 1886.
But that’s not all! Davis is filled with other popular spots, including Antelope Island State Park, where you can see over 500 wild bison freely roaming and catch the best sunsets in Northern Utah. We’re also home to 10 gorgeous golf courses, several shopping centers, over 400 dining options, and the most amusement parks in Utah. With all of that, you might consider us a summer destination, but Davis County is just a short drive to nine world-class ski resorts!
We are the destination for families because we are budget-friendly while providing adventure and opportunities not offered elsewhere in Utah. Located minutes from other popular areas in Utah and just a short drive from surrounding states, Davis County is the perfect location for your next day of fun or weekend getaway. So come visit — we know you’ll love it here!
