Museum
“30 minutes south of Blanding. This museum features pioneers that settled Blanding and Bluff. It’s free to visit and it’s a cool place for adults and kids. Checkout la bunch of log cabins furnished with family heirlooms from the actual pioneers and their stories. There is a place for kids to pan for “gold”, hand carts to pull around, “steer” roping, and pioneer clothes for kids to dress up in. My favorite part is the homemade brownies and cookies sold for $1 .”

Cemetery
“Classic example of a 19th century American cemetery with panoramic views of Bluff. Adjacent is the Anasazi ruin called the Bluff Greathouse. Archaeologists have left a portion of this once massive structure exposed to show prehistoric building techniques. A kiosk at the site provides more information. ”

Convenience Store
“Most of the basic groceries you might need. Keep in mind Utah's liquor laws - only 2% beer here, or bring your favorite brew from elsewhere. Greater selection of groceries and fresh produce is at Clarks Market in Blanding - 20 minute drive north... and also a very good laundromat in Blanding!”
