7 Reasons to Travel to St George Utah
St. George is a city in southwestern Utah. Nearby Snow Canyon State Park offers trails, dunes, and red sandstone cliffs. Sand Hollow State Park features a large reservoir. Stately 19th-century buildings such as the Pioneer Courthouse and Brigham Young Winter Home dot downtown. The St. George Art Museum houses historical photos and work by regional artists. Zion National Park, with canyons and streams, lies northeast.
Reason #1: Zion National Park
You may not have realized that the main hub of southwest Utah is St. George, but you know about Zion National Park, which is 45 minutes away. No more driving 6-8 hours for this incredible national park. You can fly direct and turn a long weekend into an epic one. The canyon walls of Zion sell themselves. But don’t be fooled, there is a whole lot more going on here than just Zion.
Reason #2: Canyoneering Adventures
Canyoneering is the sport of bouncing between rappelling down a slot canyon and hiking through the canyon to the next rappel. It might feel like you’re dreaming, but it’s the most alive you’ll ever feel.
Reason #3: Tuacahn Outdoor Amphitheater
It’s called Broadway in the Canyon for good reason. Tuacahn has high quality shows being performed in a red rock amphitheater nestled into a canyon just outside of St. George. The canyon walls tower over you in every direction to create one of the most iconic settings, and the shows are amazing. This year they are performing Shrek the Musical, Newsies, and Mamma Mia!
Reason #4: Crazy Talented Artists & Galleries
The first place you must go is the Kayenta Art Village in Ivins. Here you can watch some of the artists at work throwing clay or painting. There are also some great landscape and wildlife photographers to visit as well. From there, head over to Springdale and visit several great galleries. Purchasing a print of the Narrows is a great way to remember your unbelievable trip.
Reason #5: World-Class Hiking
Hiking is incredible here. You get to have breathtaking views, slot canyons filled with petroglyphs, alpine mountain meadows, orange sand dunes and much more.
Reason #6: Rejuvenating Spas
Picture yourself getting a hot stone massage while you look out the window onto a red rock paradise. No stress or worries can reach you here. You can do some yoga or take a healthy cooking class. There are some great traditional spas for relaxation and some pretty amazing ones focused on rejuvenation and healthy living as well.
Reason #7: Mountain Biking Paradise
St. George has a mountain biking trail named Paradise Rim, and one look at it will tell you the name was appropriate. There are hundreds of miles of single track and slick rock to explore. St. George is the home of The Redbull Rampage. If you bring your bike, you’re in for an incredible time.
