Welcome to Cedar City
This sleepy college town comes to life every summer when the Shakespeare festival takes over. Associated events, plays and tours continue into fall. Year-round you can make one of the many B&Bs a quiet home base for exploring the Kolob Canyons section of Zion National Park or Cedar Breaks National Monument. At roughly 6000ft, cooler temperatures prevail here than in Springdale (60 miles away) or St George (55 miles); there's even occasional snow in May.
