Cedar City Environs Biking Image

Gateway to Adventure
Cedar City has long billed itself as "gateway to Utah's National Parks." One excellent itinerary is to follow the loop from Cedar City, southeast to Zion National Park, then north to Bryce Canyon National Park and back through Cedar Breaks National Monument to Cedar City. It's not a trip that you should schedule for one day, however: two is doable, three is ideal, and four is a bonus.

Brian Head Resort
It's just 40 minutes from Cedar City to Brian Head Resort where you'll have access to outdoor adventure on premier downhill slopes no matter the season and you will definitely have earned a stop at the spa at Brian Head.

The terracotta-colored hoodoos made famous by Bryce Canyon creep in near Brian Head, where summer adventure at elevation is as varied as Southern Utah's singular geology. From disc golf and scenic lift rides or hikes to heart-pumping downhill singletrack mountain biking, this is a resort you have to experience in the summer, but also to also get a taste of the slopes, we hope not literally, that await in the winter. The latest addition is the Brian Head Free Fall: an adrenaline-charged-35-foot drop into a giant inflatable bag. When in Brian Head ... (866) 930-1010

National Forest and Public Lands
The expansive Dixie National Forest encompassees all of these national places and resorts, and there's plenty of public lands and designated wilderness areas to help get you off the beaten path. Three Peaks is a recently developed recreation area encompassing BLM lands for picnicking, camping, mountain biking and off-road fun. Cedar City is an ideal basecamp to experience it all.

Cultural & Heritage Attractions
Utah's premier theatrical event each year is the Tony Award®-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival at Southern Utah University, (435) 586-7878. Each summer and fall thousands converge on Cedar City to participate in renaissance festivities and see three Shakespearean productions rotating nightly. Modern plays are also presented. The Festival's free "Green Show" includes puppet shows, strolling vendors, and musicians. Performances are nightly.

The Neil Simon Festival celebrates the works of America's greatest comedian playwright, featuring three of his 38 plays each season, which runs mid-July through mid-August, (866) 35-SIMON.

Cedar City's cuisine has burst onto the scene in a big way in recent years, anchored by some of the best woodfired pizza around, incredible BBQ, modern American, and fine Mexican dining. Cedar City's population is fewer than 30,000 people, which is a relatively small town by most standards, but large for a national park gateway town in Southern Utah. That simply means great variety and amenities for an excellent basecamp to adventure.

Business is Good 
Utah is one of the nation's fastest-growing states and has one of the lowest unemployment rates thanks to sensible regulation and a business friendly environment. Cedar City is flourishing in several industry sectors thanks to a young, energetic workforce, low cost of business and top quality-of-life assets like outdoor access and cost of living.
