Cedar City is a small city in Dixie, Utah, and is a good place to stock up on supplies before heading into beautiful wilderness areas stretching out in all directions. The city is sandwiched between mountain ranges covered by Dixie National Forest, while further to the southwest lie the remotest areas of Zion National Park, and to the east Cedar Breaks National Monument and Bryce Canyon National Park.
Delta offers flights to Cedar City Regional Airport, located just northwest of town, from Salt Lake City.
Cedar City is located along I-15, the north-south freeway through western Utah.
The Utah Shakespearean Festival takes place each year on the campus of Southern Utah University.
Cedar City is located very near major recreational areas to the east, including Cedar Breaks National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, and Zion National Park to the south. Las Vegas is only about a 2 hour drive along I-15 to the southwest.
