9 Exciting Activities In Cedar City This Summer
We’re all ready for warmer weather in southern Utah, so with that in mind, I thought I’d put together a list of things to do in, and close by Cedar City, in the summer.
Cedar Breaks National Monument: 45 minutes from Cedar City. If you don’t have time to go to Bryce Canyon, you can see the mini version of Bryce Canyon, Cedar Breaks.
Utah Shakespeare Festival: Founded in 1961 by Fred C. Adams and his wife Barbra, they presented their first season in 1962. The Utah Shakespeare Festival comprises four theaters and includes a free Greenshow before performances. The festival won a Tony Award in 2000 for America’s Outstanding Regional Theater.
Southern Utah Museum of Art: Located at 13 South 300 West on the Southern Utah University campus, SUMA features the artwork of regional artists, faculty and student artists, and emerging and distinguished artists from around the country. SUMA is free and open to the public.
Stillman Sculpture Court: On the grounds of The Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts, the Stillman Sculpture Court was first opened to the public in 2016.
ICAMA Music In The Park: The Iron County Acoustic Music Association puts together a concert in Main Street Park during the summer in Cedar City. They also put together monthly concerts from October through April usually at the Community Presbyterian Church at 2279 North Wedgewood Lane.
Coal Creek Trail: Running from Bicentennial Park north and east up Cedar Canyon. It has a one-way distance of 3.4 miles. This trail takes you from city views to wilderness views in a short period of time. Along Coal Creek trail, you can stop at Frontier Homestead State Park and check out their garden located just off the trail.
Frontier Homestead State Park: Speaking of Frontier Homestead State Park, not only can you stop a look at the garden, this park allows you to check out the early industrial and pioneer roots of Cedar City. Frontier Homestead State Park is located at 635 North Main Street.
Bryce Canyon National Park: Established in 1928, Bryce Canyon National Park is 98 miles away from Cedar City and is a great trip to make if Cedar Breaks National Monument didn’t scratch your itch for otherworldly vistas.
Three Peaks Recreation Area: You can get your fill of hiking, mountain biking, ATV riding, and more at Three Peaks. Three Peaks Recreation Area is located 10 miles west of Cedar City.
