Cedar City

“The Festival City”

Cedar City is a surprising cool mountain town that just happens to have world class cultural attractions in astonishing proximity to the southwest Utah’s famous Mighty Five© National Parks. At the end of the day, Cedar City is also known as “Festival City, USA” with a plethora of events taking place year-round from free music festivals, downtown parades to touring bike races.

Though free from crushing traffic and frantic city pacing, Cedar City doesn’t skip on amenities. Historic Downtown is quaint with local shops and an impressive menu of “urban-esque” cuisine and southern Utah’s only winery. Southern Utah University keeps things interesting with Division I athletics, guest lectures and concerts AND they just happen to be the “Most Outdoorsy University” in the nation. Paved trails weave the perimeter of town connecting you to the great outdoors and miles of recreational paths for mountain biking, hiking and OHV riding.
