Whether it is just a quick stop for a drink, or a chance to rest your legs, whatever the excuse – take a half hour and see what Green River and surrounding areas have to offer.moableav


Sego Canyon Rock Art site

Stop for this one, a top ten for the entire southern Utah vacation. Located just 3 miles north of the town of Thompson, right along the freeway. This site has been restored and interpreted. It is wonderful, believe me.


Powell Museum

Located on the east end of Green River, this museum houses some fun exhibits – plus a mutli-projector slide presentation that you won’t want to miss – plus it has one of southern Utah’s best book and gift shops.If nothing else, take fifteen minutes to see the wonderful slide show at the museum. It gives you the words of Powell and the images of the river as you follow his historic trip down this mighty river. Then if you have time, view the exhibits and perhaps take some time to visit one of the best book and gift shops in the south part of the state. (Not necessarily the biggest but one of my favorites.)


Green River State Park

An oasis of trees and river, located just off the center street in Green River. A quick trip to view the water and you can be on your way.In an area so lacking in green stuff, this park is an oasis. There are nice campgrounds and you can get down to the river. This is an optional activity if you are pressed for time.
