Southern Utah Lifestyle & Real Estate
Perhaps the best kept secret in Southern Utah, Cedar City is a year-round paradise. Known as Festival City USA, Cedar City is about mountains, cool summers and great live theatre, music and art. Located just two-and-a half hour drive north of Las Vegas, Nevada via the I-15 corridor, Cedar City is the gateway to southern Utah’s state and national parks and forests. It's prime location and beautiful mountains make it a great place to build a log cabin to either live in or for a vacation home. The national parks and scenic areas nearby include Zion National Park, Virgin River Valley, Arches National Park, Kolob Canyon, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capital Reef National Park, Cedar Breaks, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Canyonlands National Park, Escalante Petrified Forest, the Grand Staircase National Monument, Dixie National Forest, Navaho Lake and Coral Pink Sand Dunes, just to name a few, offers the diverse, spectacular, natural beauty and enchantment that has made southern Utah famous.
Southern Utah’s greatest legacy has always been the tremendous outdoor activities. Skiers and snowboarders love the deep powder snow at Brian Head Ski Resort, just a thirty-minute drive from Cedar City. Dozens of trout streams, lakes within a short drive, provide endless fishing opportunities. Mountain biking, snowmobiling, camping, wildlife viewing and horseback riding are just a few of the activities to be enjoyed in the surrounding area. All this recreation entices Cedar City visitors and residents with incredible beauty and unrivaled natural attractions. Perhaps the greatest dilemma facing southern Utah is choosing between the numerous recreational opportunities available.
