Cedar City is a large town situated on the Markagunt Plateau in southwest Utah. Its elevation of 5,800 feet makes it cooler than the nearby city of St. George. As well as being a great base for exploring the Markagunt Plateau, Cedar City vacation rentals are within easy reach of Zion National Park and Bryce National Park, both about 60 miles away. The red rock formations, buttes and gorges in the parks make a stunning vista which stretches for miles.

A rental car will be necessary to reach your Cedar City lodging and to explore the area.
