Call us biased, but Southern Utah is a top choice for digital nomads because of benefits like future-fit internet access, innovation, and cybersecurity, as well as stellar nature experiences, national monuments, and recreational exploration.

We’ve rounded up our need-to-know details that will help with remote work and travel to Southern Utah. Read on for more.


The Best Times to Visit

Spring (April and May) and Autumn (September and October) are the best times to visit Southern Utah because of mild temperatures and moderate tourist crowd sizes. June through August is hot and dry, in addition to welcoming the largest crowds of the year who are taking trips during summer break. 

Winter can bring drifting snows, causing blocks and impasses in the national parks, but local favorites like Brian Head Resort offer cold-weather recreation like skiing, snowshoeing, and snowboarding.

No matter what time of the year you visit Utah, there are plenty of things to see and do. But with record-breaking crowds in Zion National Park, it’s worth considering your top list of things to see and do, and what, where, and when will work best for you to check them off!

Taking Care of Basic Needs

Big box stores and shops in Southern Utah cities—including Cedar City, St. George, Hurricane, Springdale, and Duck Creek Village— answer immediate basic need provisions like food, shelter, and clothing. Cedar City and St. George have several stores— like Target, Best Buy, and CVS Pharmacy—that can help to restock essentials and supplies. These two towns also have regional airports.

For all of the extras, check out a plethora of outfitters for gear and equipment rental so that you can fully immerse yourself in the best of what Utah has to offer for the “play” part of the live-work-play equation.
