So what is there to see in St. George, Utah, and makes us want to fly in and stay in a St. George hotel for a week or two? There are many actually. St. George is the favorite hub of Southwestern Utah, and has even earned the nickname “Utah’s Dixie,” given when the Mormon pioneers were growing cotton in the warm climate years ago. Over the years it has also pulled in a lot of tourists and visitors with its natural sights and fast economical growth.

The Zion National Park is among the wondrous tourist attractions of St. George. The national park actually covers a great area over the stat of Utah, but it is St. George that offers the nearest and most convenient gateway to the park. The city is also within easy driving distance to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Bryce National Park, and the Cedar Beaks National Monument. For all our national park excursions, it is best to stay at St. George.

Aside from the national parks, there are also the state parks to visit. There are many popular Utah state parks in St. George. Sand Hollow is one of the most popular state parks in the state. It is also one of the newest, and yet it has already attracted many people. It offers a place of fun and relaxation with its services of boating, water sports, fishing, sandy beaches, camping and picnic, and sand dunes where you can ride ATVs.

We can play a lot of golf in St. George. The city is known to be Utah’s golf capital, after all. Naturally it can be said that the best golf courses can be found here. Golf Digest is especially very popular. The golf courses in St. George are all outstanding and unique as it is set against the red canyon walls and black lava rock. We can get many beautiful views of the red rock desert country just by playing golf.

Another attraction to look forward to is the Tuacahn, which is the Mayan word for “Canyon of the Gods.” The Tuacahn Amphitheatre and Center for the Arts is found under the shadows of 1500-foot red rock cliffs and is like Broadway in the desert. This outdoor theatre is indeed spectacular with its red rock cliff background. The theatre company also features Utah’s finest actors to entertain us all.

Also popular with the tourists is the Dinosaur Walkway. The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm is still quite new and is in its early stages of scientific study and development. But the area has already become famous because of the dinosaur tracks preserved in the slabs of sandstone from the Moenave Formation. These are some of the oldest and best-preserved tracks in the world. We are able to see the tracks of three-toed dinosaurs of long ago, and will also be able to see skin prints and impressions from tail drags and swimming movements.

As a powerhouse for many spectacular rock formations and natural wonders, it is no surprise that many would want to enjoy a weekend of relaxation, fun, and adventure here.
