Cedar City

Here, there's no excuse to have nothing to do.
There are plenty of things to experience in Cedar City, Utah thanks to nearby ski resorts, a national forest, great national parks and a superb arts scene. From festivals and cuisine, to hoodoos and wilderness, this city is sure to give you an unforgettable chapter in your book of travels.

Adventure

National Parks

Cedar City has long billed itself as "gateway to Utah's National Parks." One excellent travel itinerary is to follow the loop from Cedar City, southeast to Zion National Park, then north to Bryce Canyon National Park and then back through Cedar Breaks National Monument to Cedar City. This tour of Utah’s top parks is 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. After a full day of exploring, you will have definitely earned a stop at a nearby spa.

The terracotta-colored hoodoos made famous by Bryce Canyon creep in near Brian Head, where summer and winter 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 mountain biking and skiing, this is a resort you have to experience in the summer and winter.

National Forest & Public Lands

In the expansive Dixie National Forest there are 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.

Hiking

Of course there's hiking! Read High-elevation Dixie National Forest Trails to see a list of some of our favorite Cedar City hiking tails.

Culture

  • Shakespeare Festival - Utah's premier theatrical event each year is the Tony Award®-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival at Southern Utah University. Every summer and fall, thousands converge in 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.
  • The Neil Simon Festival - This festival celebrates the works of America's greatest comedic playwright, featuring three of Simon's 38 plays each season, which runs mid-July through mid-August.

Cuisine

Cedar City's cuisine has burst onto the scene in a big way in recent years, anchored by some of the best wood-fired pizza around, incredible BBQ, modern American restaurants, and fine Mexican dining. Here's a detailed list of recommended restaurants, bars, coffee shops and more that'll be sure to suit your fancy.

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. With much to do, and a small, local population to partake, the city enthusiastically welcomes you to enjoy its great variety of activities and amenities for an excellent basecamp to adventure!
