What to Do for Fun/Recreation in Southern Utah

If you’re ever in the Southern Utah area or are planning a trip to Southern Utah, and you’re wondering just what the heck there is to do here, you’re in luck. Whether you’re traveling with the whole family, with a special someone, or just on a soul searching trip by yourself, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at what we’ve come up with for you and the whole family.

Kanab City Swimming Pool

When I talk about the Kanab City Swimming Pool, what I really mean is Kanab City Tiny Beach, because this pool is seriously huge. The shallow end gradually becomes deeper as you go further in toward the water slide. Yes. You read that correctly, not only does this pool have a water side, but it also has a lazy river for you to float along in as you enjoy that nice cold beverage. Grab your floaties, what are you waiting for? Admission is only $3 per person, and it all goes toward keeping the pool clean and enjoyable for everyone.
Fishing Navajo Lake

Navajo Lake is probably one of the most popular places to go fishing in Southern Utah. If you’re looking for a peaceful day on the lake with nothing but a cooler full of bait and beer, this is the place for you to take on your wildest fishing dreams. Check out the following video in which these two gentlemen manage to catch a gorgeous Pike from Navajo Lake. Don’t worry, it ends happily with the guys letting her swim free.

Fishing Lake Powell

If you’re an avid fisherman (or fisherwoman), you know that the striped bass (or Striper Boils) is commonly found in salt water, so you probably would have zero luck finding any of these guys in land-locked Utah right? So wrong. Lake Powell happens to be pretty notorious for having a large amount of striped bass. Check out the guys of Utah Wildlife Resources give us a front seat tutorial on how to successfully catch striped bass in Lake Powell. They also give us a nice lesson on how the whole circle of life works for these tasty fish as well!

Coral Cliffs Golf Course

If you love golf and beautiful views, your’e in luck with Coral Cliffs. A friend of mine loves coming here in the afternoon after he’s done with work, because the weather is perfect for getting in those 9 holes, and you get to see the spectacular view of these cliffs at sunset. Keep in mind that this is a 9-hole course, but it’s great if you don’t have all day but still want to get your golfing fix in. If you really want to do 18 holes, you can always go for two rounds and enjoy the amazing course all over again!

Scenic Flights:

If you’re looking for a breathtaking adventure to take in all of the magnificent views of Southern Utah, there is probably no better way to do it than with a scenic flight. These flights are perfect for those adventurous date nights that would leave great memories for the both of you for a lifetime. Visit Red Tail Air Adventures to book your tour ahead of time, because before the opportunity flies away!

Crescent Moon Theater

If you’re looking for a low-key yet exciting night, I highly recommend you check out the Crescent Moon Theater. This place has all types of theatrical entertainment that all center on the western theme to really give that great escape from reality. There are poetry and music nights, and on Monday’s you can see western movies that were actually filmed in Kane County. This place is great for the whole family but it’s also a fantastic date spot that will leave the both of you very impressed with the production quality that the team at Crescent Moon always puts together.
