...........the road out!

During my 3 month trip to the US most of the highlights of my travels have been small towns. I particularly enjoy finding the local bars and having a few beers, chatting with the locals and just generally getting a feel of the place.

Well, try this link then: http://www.southeastutah.worldweb.com/Monticello/RestaurantsBars/

See what I mean?

Not only are there no bars, the restaurant we ate in which advertised itself as having a state liquor license turned out not to - great place Monticello.

Try this link as well which explains the Utah licensing laws:

OK pick up a few beers from a liquor store - only between the hours of 12am and 7pm, closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays. The local convenience store which is allowed to sell only 3.2% beer was closed and the hotel was dry, well goodbye Monticello.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Reasonable location for access to the National Parks.
  • Cons:No Bars!
  • In a nutshell:Definitely a "Drive-thru" Town!

    Hilarious. Don't you love Utah drinking laws?? Just about every state in the US has a Monticello - I'm from the one in Iowa but there's no problem locating suds there!
