HotelTonight – Find Rooms in Green River in Minutes

I was on a long drive across Utah on my way to back from business meetings in Colorado. After hours of driving, I decided to break things up and pulled over in Green River. I made the decision to spend a day exploring Green River and see what it little town had to offer. I knew I wouldn't have any problem finding a place to stay, even on short notice, thanks to the HotelTonight app.

The Area

Green River is located in Emery County near the Colorado border. The city lies on the banks of the Green River and is near the picturesque San Rafael Swell. The city is also near the Canyonlands National Park, which makes it a great place to stay, if you're looking to experience the great scenery of Utah. Green River is full of natural beauty and history, which made it the perfect place for me to spend a day and take a break from a long drive. As I pulled into the city, I couldn't wait to get out of my car and spend a day in Green River.

Things to Do

Despite being a small town, there is a lot to see and do in Green River. I happened to be in town at the perfect time and saw signs advertising fresh Watermelon and quickly learned that Green River is famous for its melons. I decided it'd be fun to drop in on the town's Melon Days. I was able to sample some delicious locally grown melons and also got a nice taste of local life in Green River. In addition to that, I also stopped in at a museum which details the history of the area. It was really interesting and a fun way to relax.

The Food

I wanted to try the best food that Green River has to offer, so I asked around for recommendations and was led to a little cafe in town. Several people had mentioned how great the restaurant's sandwiches were, so I ordered a BLT. The sandwich was delicious and the lettuce and tomato were so fresh it could have been picked that day. After my sandwich, I finished off the meal with a piece of pie. The pie was so good and served as the perfect end to my day in Green River.

I opened up the HotelTonight app and within a few minutes had booked a nice room in Green River. The HotelTonight app took all the stress of booking a room at the last minute away and made the whole process so easy. Spending a day in Green River was just what I needed to recharge my batteries. The next day, I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to finish my drive.
