5 Things to do on a Rainy Day in Cedar City
It’s raining it’s pouring, but Cedar City is always worth exploring!
In the high desert a rainy day is never a bad thing, but it does mean that sometimes plans need adjusting. Luckily Cedar City is home to more than just incredible outdoor recreation. Here are 5 of our favorite ways to spend a rainy day while still exploring the wonders waiting in our backyard.
1. Visit the Southern Utah Museum of Art
Located on the campus of Southern Utah University, the Southern Utah Museum of Art (nicknamed SUMA) features the artwork of regional artists known for their landscapes, faculty and student artists, and more! With rotating exhibits you’re sure to find something incredible.
2. Play a Round at Iron Axe
Bullseye! Axe throwing is a safe and fun activity that is available for the whole family and Iron Axe: Indoor Axe & Knife Throwing is a great place to start! Their incredibly friendly staff, low prices, and relaxed atmosphere guarantee that you and your party will have a great time.
3. Visit the Frontier Homestead State Park Museum
Step back in time at Cedar City’s own Frontier Homestead State Park Museum! Where interactive displays and exhibits bring the early history of Cedar City and southern Utah to life. The back of the museum is the “Homestead” with several preserved historic structures representing the life of an early pioneer settlement. While the main museum building is home to a large vehicle and wagon collection, as well as interactive exhibits.
4. Shop and Relax in Historic Downtown
Visitors can find dining, shopping, art, and entertainment in Historic Downtown, as well as a vibrant arts and culture scene. A few of the local shops are connected, making it easy to stay out of the rain as you shop!
Grab a coffee from a local spot to enjoy as you check out the boutiques and local shops, finding the various vibrant murals along the way, as you explore downtown Cedar City. Pause for lunch at any of the wonderful restaurants within a block of each other, or grab a drink at IG Winery or Policy Kings Brewery.
5. Enjoy a Scenic Drive to Kolob Canyons
It’s amazing what a little fall of rain can do to draw out the incredible colors found throughout the north side of Zion National Park! After it rains is one of our favorite times to plan a visit to Kolob Canyons and enjoy the beautiful scenic drive. The canyon is shaped in rugged red sandstone cliffs that draw the eye and make a stunning backdrop.
