Hurricane is a gateway to Zion National Park and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, along with several other communities along SR-9 and SR-59. It is also home to two state parks, Quail Creek and Sand Hollow, which attract both residents and visitors for water sports such as sailing, fishing, boating, and paddling in the desert. Sand Hollow is the gateway to the Sand Mountain ATV recreation area, home to both recreational and event use.

The area includes world class mountain biking trails, with multiple trails located within the City limits. A community theater makes its home in the City owned Fine Arts building and the Community Center hosts multiple events annually, including a car show and the much loved Peach Days Festival.
