St. George (Greater Zion)


There’s a reason every Utahn ends up in St George. Or, lots of reasons, really.

Brigham Young sent Latter-day Saint settlers down south to grow crops in the big sun. Your uncle and aunt retired there for the premium warm-weather golfing. Your outdoorsy friends love Zion National Park and the surrounding state parks’ year-round adventures. Your city-slicker friends just want to be warm and comfortable and have a million restaurant options. Did we mention the moderate winters? Located in the southwest corner of Utah, just 90 minutes from Las Vegas, in St. George you will experience a much warmer climate than our friends that have the greatest snow on earth up north!

Things to do in St, George/Greater Zion

Whatever brings you to St. George, be open to getting sidetracked. If you’re outdoorsy, drawn by the fresh air and red rocks, branch out and get a spa treatment or see a play or go shopping or eating or gallery-hopping.

If you’re indoorsy… Come on. HAVE YOU LOOKED OUTSIDE?!

Hike Snow Canyon! Boat and ride ATVs at Sand Hollow. Bike the Anasazi Trail (for single-trackers), Gooseberry Mesa (for technical tricksters), or the Snow Canyon Paved Loop (for the rest of us). Ride a horse, fish a river, or canyoneer a… you know… a canyon.
