WHAT TO DO IN CEDAR CITY

We are often asked, “What is there to do in Cedar City?”…..

Let us tell you about our area…..

We are the gateway to several of the most beautiful National Parks, in the country. Zion and Bryce National Park are just a short drive, from the heart of Cedar City. Cedar Breaks National Monument is a beautiful 25 minute drive, in our own Cedar Canyon.

In Cedar Canyon, there are so many places to hike and bike. Brianhead Ski Resort has several biking trails, some of which can be accessed by their tram. The wildlife is abundant on Cedar Mountain. Camping spots are numerous. Woods Ranch and kids pond is just 12 miles, on SR-14.

We are very proud of The Frontier Homestead State Park, The Old Rock Church, Old Iron Town, and The Spanish Trail, with tributes and monuments, commemorating explorers of the past.

We have several parks, for your enjoyment. Park Discovery is a huge hit with families and children. Main Street Park has plenty of room, for picnics, with 2 pavilions and plenty of grass to relax on. Our Veterans Memorial Park is one of our parks,  that we take great pride in. It honors our Veterans from World War I & II, Korean, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraqi Wars. It has scenic walking trails with monuments, along the way. The trail winds 3 miles up to the mouth of Cedar Canyon.

Cedar City has a wonderful University.  Southern Utah University, which has provided an amazing education for thousands of students. SUU has been the hub for the Utah Summer Games and has partnered, for years, with the Tony award winning Utah Shakespeare Festival! The Museum of Natural History is adjacent to the Science Building. The museum features rich geological & biological life history of Southern Utah.

Our community and others have enjoyed Three Peaks Recreational Park, West of Cedar City. It has two pavilions for groups, and several picnic areas. ATV trails, mountain biking and unique rock formations, are there to explore.

We have two movie Theaters with 14 movie screens.

Come and visit us in mid September and have a thrill of your life, with the Cedar City SkyFest! Hot air balloons, kite flying, motorized planes and more.

So you ask, “What is there to do in Cedar City”? Come and see what awaits you! We have just begun, to show you!
