Fort Zion Virgin Trading Post
Virgin UT

Now before you get all excited or start a petition against the practice, I’m here to tell you that the Fort Zion Virgin Trading Post does not actually trade virgins. They don’t actually trade anything, come to think of it, unless you call paying cash for something trading. And it’s not a real fort, only built to resemble one. I mean, come on! They have air conditioning. I can just see old Davy Crockett at the Alamo asking someone to set the ac lower during the fighting. (And yes, I know the Alamo wasn’t a fort, but a mission- which has air conditioning now. And why do you always allow me to get side tracked?)

Anyway, I have never been inside the “fort” because they are closed off season, between November and, I think, March. It is actually a souvenir shop and restaurant. From reading people’s comments on Trip Advisor, the store is overpriced but the restaurant is not and the food is good. They also have a petting zoo and there are other buildings out front to resemble a small western town.

And let’s not forget the conestoga wagon out front. Now that’s what I call air conditioned!
