Welcome to Adventure ...

So far, we have found very little information about Adventure. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Adventure to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Adventure, please Contact Us.


Adventure would have been located within present day Washington County<2>.

We aren't confident of the location of Adventure, so consider the above location as an estimate.<3>

Adventure was founded in 1860.

Time Zone: The area where Adventure was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you leave Adventure and travel south, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Mountain Standard Time Zone (MST). In addition, you will be moving from an area that observes daylight saving time to one that does not.

If Adventure still existed, it would have been in the (435) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Adventure, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Washington, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Adventure) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Adventure. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from AdventureOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Adventure. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.1615, Longitude: -113.0734
