Price is a mid-sized town (pop. 9,000) in the middle of the state. To the south and east lie the terrifically remote expanses of desert of the Colorado Plateau. Nearby are a few areas of interest.
To the northeast, Nine Mile Canyon features some of the best ancient rock art in the state. Further east, the Green River carves canyons through the desert offering some whitewater rafting opportunities. South lies the northern portion of the San Rafael Swell with some wonderful scenic drives and backcountry hiking opportunities for the adventurous. To the west are the forested highlands of the Wasatch Plateau offering some pleasant scenic drives, hiking and mountain biking opportunities in a cool alpine setting. Within Price itself is The College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum, which beyond covering dinosaurs, has some excellent free maps and brochures of the area.
