Helper doesn't have the proximity to national parks and ski resorts that you find in Utah's other tourist centers.

  • So, what's in Helper?

Turns out, a lot.

Festivals are the biggest draw, with thousands pouring into town for the upcoming Christmas Town events and light parades and the big August Arts, Music and Film Festival. Other fun events include:

Outdoor rec opportunities abound, from the ghost towns of Spring Canyon to the county's network of ATV trails.

History (and prehistory) buffs will enjoy the Helper Museum, Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry.

Eats & drinks: Helper Beer is the big new name in town, helmed by Jaron Anderson, formerly of Templin Family Brewing. Every brew we sampled was top-notch.
