Do not miss a trip to Escalante and the Shooting Star Drive-In where guests bunk in luxe Airstreams and watch outdoor movies under the stars.
Nestled in Southern Utah’s red rock canyon country alongside the Escalante River, you’ll discover a one-of-a-kind getaway where kitsch, comfort and style meet in an airstream park.
That’s right! The Shooting Star Drive-In, just west of Escalante in Utah, is an airstream resort with a classic 1960s drive-in movie theater that recently made its debut on May 6th, 2011. Opt from eight custom-designed Airstreams, each of which bears resemblance to an old Hollywood Star’s dressing room where you can look through your “star’s” personal shooting script or try on wardrobe pieces. There’s Ann-Margaret’s cabana styled after her trailer on VIVA Las Vegas with Elvis or a version of Robert Redford’s digs when was filming Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Think Western décor with Native American flair mixed with modern amenities like a flatscreen HDTV and stellar barbecue out front.
Every evening at sunset, guests can hop into a ’64 Caddy, ’61 Rambler or a ’66 Olds 98 and put the top down to enjoy a drive-in movie with pizza, popcorn and shakes.
During the day, enjoy the gorgeous red rock setting on ATVs, hiking through the oak trees along the meandering river or sign up for a guided excursion. The resort borders Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument where you can explore the 1.9 million-acre wilderness and travel through hidden rock canyons. East of the town of Escalante you’ll find remarkable views at Peak-A-Boo and Spooky Slot Canyons. Not to mention, the Dinosaur Track Site, for a Jurassic adventure.
Hooked yet? Well, here’s the scoop. The Shooting Star Drive-In is celebrating the end of its inaugural season with a flaming deal. Book one night and get the second night free. No limits! Pay for two nights, get two nights free. Book three, then get three free. You get the picture. Hurry and reserve today while the tops are still coming down on the convertibles at the drive-in.
