Local Attractions

Cedar Breaks National Monument

This national monument is located in the south western corner of Utah, near Cedar City. The monument's natural amphitheater is about 3 miles in length and reaches a depth of over 2000 feet.  Though more eroded, the rock formations resemble those at Bryce Canyon National Park, as well as Red Canyon and areas of Cedar Mountain. Because of the area's elevation, parts of the park are  inaccessible by vehicle from October to May, while the rim visitor center is open June through October.

 Cedar City

Cedar City, founded in 1851, is in Iron County, in south western Utah. Known as Festival City, USA, the city is situated near many local attractions as well as popular destinations such as St. George and Las Vegas. Cedar City is home to 17 major events including the Utah Summer Games and the Utah Shakespearean Festival. It is also home to Southern Utah University.


Grand Canyon, North Rim

The entrance to the Grand Canyon’s NORTH RIM is located 30 miles south of Jacob Lake, Arizona on Highway 67, while the actual rim of the canyon is some 14 miles south. The North Rim offers fantastic views, while maintaining a level of solitude not often enjoyed at the South Rim. The Kaibab Lodge, along Highway 67, offers good food, with a pleasant, rustic environment. Visitor lodging and food services at the North Rim are typically open from mid-May to mid-October.

   St. George

St. George is a popular destination for those traveling through Utah’s stunning south western region. Natural beauty surrounds you, with the signature red rock cliffs set against an azure blue sky, lush golf courses and a vibrant downtown district. The nearby Mojave Desert, Zion National Park and the Pine Valley Mountains offer scenic adventures, while the mild, mostly snow-free winters, offer considerable geographical advantages for golfers, hikers and bikers.
   Zion National Park

This picturesque Park is 229 square miles of breathtaking landscapes including mountains, canyons, mesas, rivers, natural arches and statuesque rock formations. The Park is home to four life zones, making it a unique geographical area with a variety of plants and animals. A rich history combines with modern day adventure to make Zion National Park a must see.

   Kodachrome Basin State Park

As soon as you see it, you will know that the name fits perfectly. Kodachrome Basin State Park, with its red tinged rock formations and incredible blue skies, just begs to be photographed. The National Geographic Society came up with the name, and everyone agreed with it.
Towering monolithic spires or chimneys jut up from the valley floor or protrude from the sandstone rocks that surround the campground and inspire an infinite array of subjects limited only by one’s imagination.

   Grand Staircase- Escalante National Monument 

This monument, which comprises 1.7 million acres, was designated a National Monument just recently in 1996 and is considered to be one of the last explored areas of the continental United States.
Within the Grand Staircase there are more trails and areas for exploration than can be experienced in a year, but we can suggest some excellent places to go such as: Coyote Gulch, Bull Valley Gorge and Devil’s Garden, just to name a few.
