Things to do in Cedar City

We spent a weekend in Cedar City this summer and we were amazed at all the fun things to do in and around this town. We found so many great family adventures. In fact, there were so many things to do in Cedar City, we ran out of time to visit them all. Here’s our list of adventures, and we will add to this list when we visit again.

In Town

There are quite a few fun things to do right in the main town of Cedar City.

Shakespeare Festival: The Shakespeare Festival is famous all over Utah, and tons of people come to watch the shows they put on here. Every night at 7:00 they put on a Green Show on the lawn for FREE as a kick off for the plays showing that night.

Garth and Jerri Frehner Museum of Natural History

We were unable to visit this little museum on SUU’s campus. It is open T-F from 10:30-4:30, and we were there the opposite of those times. This museum is FREE and looks like a smaller version of BYU’s Bean Museum.

Near Parowan

Parowan is a town about 10 miles north of Cedar City. There were quite a few fun things to do near this little town. Make sure to grab a famous cinnamon roll while you are in town. Almost every restaurant, and even the gas station sell cinnamon rolls.
