Top Attractions in Grand County - According to AI

I am doing a project in which I ask AI questions about Utah. This provides an interesting summary of the way that AI and the Internet view the local community.

Top Attractions in Grand County by ChatGPT

I asked ChatGPT about the top attractions in "Grand County." The AI produced a list of scenic areas and not not well marketed attractions. It made one mistake. Newspaper Rock is in San Juan County and not Grand County.

  1. Arches National Park: Known for its iconic Delicate Arch and over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, Arches National Park offers breathtaking hiking trails and scenic viewpoints.
  2. Canyonlands National Park: This vast park is characterized by its dramatic canyons, towering mesas, and the confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers. It offers stunning vistas and hiking opportunities.
  3. Dead Horse Point State Park: Situated on a mesa, Dead Horse Point State Park provides panoramic views of the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park. It's particularly famous for its overlook point.
  4. Moab: The town of Moab serves as a gateway to several national parks and outdoor adventures. It offers a variety of recreational activities, restaurants, shops, and a vibrant atmosphere.
  5. Fisher Towers: These unique red rock formations are a popular spot for hiking and rock climbing. The towers offer spectacular views of the surrounding desert landscape.
  6. Colorado River: The Colorado River offers opportunities for rafting, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Guided river tours are available, allowing visitors to experience the stunning canyons from a different perspective.
  7. Corona Arch: Located just outside of Moab, Corona Arch is a massive sandstone arch that has become a popular hiking destination. The hike to the arch provides scenic views and a chance to witness the impressive natural formation up close.
  8. Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument: This petroglyph site features ancient rock art created by Native Americans. It's an intriguing glimpse into the region's rich cultural history.
  9. Castle Valley: Situated northeast of Moab, Castle Valley is known for its picturesque landscapes, including stunning red rock formations, towering cliffs, and the iconic Castleton Tower.
  10. Professor Valley: A scenic area with beautiful rock formations, Professor Valley offers opportunities for hiking, photography, and enjoying the serene desert scenery.

Top Grand County Attractions According to Google Bard

The response from Google Bard was surprising similar to chatGPT.

  1. Arches National Park is home to over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including Delicate Arch and Double Arch.
  2. Canyonlands National Park is made up of three districts: The Needles, The Maze, and Island in the Sky. Each district offers its own unique landscape and hiking trails.
  3. Dead Horse Point State Park is located on a cliff overlooking the Colorado River. The park offers stunning views of the canyon and is a popular spot for hiking, camping, and rock climbing.
  4. Moab is a small town located near Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. The town is a popular basecamp for outdoor recreation and offers a variety of restaurants, shops, and hotels.
  5. Slickrock Trail is a challenging 10-mile off-road trail that winds through the Colorado River Canyon. The trail is popular with mountain bikers and jeep tours.
  6. The Colorado River is a major river that flows through Grand County. The river is popular for rafting, kayaking, and fishing.
  7. Fisher Towers are a group of 12 sandstone towers that rise over 1,000 feet above the Colorado River. The towers are a popular spot for hiking and rock climbing.
  8. The Needles is a district of Canyonlands National Park. The district is known for its towering sandstone spires and canyons.
  9. Mesa Arch is a natural arch that spans 30 feet across. The arch is located in Arches National Park and is a popular spot for photography.
  10. Landscape Arch is the longest arch in Arches National Park. The arch spans 290 feet across and is a popular spot for hiking and photography.


The two AIs are doing a good job providing an introduction to an area. I guess it shows that a program can be a decent guide without ever having visited a place.
