Tour Attractions In Iron County

The Cedar City and Brian Head areas offer numerous attractions that are sometimes overshadowed by the popular nearby national parks.

To help people learn about this area, the Cedar City-Brian Head Tourism Bureau offers "Discover Your Own Backyard" tours to highlight historic and outdoor sites, as well as entertainment options. Recently the bureau opened the tours to the general public.

The Spectrum has this article about the tours, which includes a schedule and contact information. Below are excerpts.
