Fort Zion - Things to Do when visiting Zion with Kids

If you are looking for a fun, family friendly stop with great food then you should definitely check out Fort Zion. Fort Zion is located just off hwy 9 in Virgin Utah, just 15 minutes west of Zion. You can’t miss it because there are giant, old-fashioned looking forts in the front.

Come to Fort Zion hungry! The menu is full of American favorites like burgers and barbeque along with salads and homemade bread. The burgers are so flavorful! The homemade bun puts this burger on the top of my list for favorite burger in Southern's that good! Also, the portions are huge, so if you visit with kids, they can easily share a meal.

One of my kiddo's favorite things about eating at Fort Zion is the cute saddle seat (there is only one, and they fight over it like crazy) and the old-fashioned piano. The piano is really fun. My kids are convinced that it is being played by a ghost and I haven't let them in on the secret just quite yet.

The homemade ice cream and homemade waffle cones are a favorite for all of us. There are 16 flavors of homemade ice cream but our favorite flavors are mint chocolate chip, and cookies and cream. Sitting on the patio in the evening while eating ice cream cones and enjoying the scenery, is one of our favorite summer activities.
