Price sits close to the northern section of the San Rafael Swell, which is home to vast deserts, yawning canyons, and fascinating rock formations. The area is known for its coal mining, as well as its recreational opportunities. Price is a great jumping-off point for visits to Goblin Valley State Park and the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry. You'll find some amazing pictograph and petroglyph rock art at places like Nine Mile Canyon, Wedge Overlook, and Buckhorn Draw. The Huntington Eccles Canyon National Scenic Byway is nearby with its views of vertical cliffs and escarpments, unique vegetation, and crystal water lakes.

Price was a typical Mormon community, then the railroad came through town. Coal mining soon replaced ranching and farming as the town was flooded with immigrants from around the world. The Price area has some great museums, such as the The Prehistoric Museum, USU Eastern. The Price Mural captures much of the area's history in a colorful work of art in the Price Municipal Building. In nearby Helper, you'll find the Western Mining and Railroad Museum. The art of ancient cultures is well-represented in Nine Mile Canyon, a 40-mile stretch that can take the better part of a day to fully experience its pictographs and petroglyphs. The nearby San Rafael Swell area shelters many old cowboy and mine sites. Price is also home to the Utah State University, Eastern.
