  • Dinosaur Discovery

    Back in 2000 Sheldon Johnson was digging his land to level it out. He happened to flip some rock over and discovered some unusual markings. Upon further investigation he learned they were dinosaur tracks. There aren't too many trackways of this length in the world. The site has been saved and scientists are busy locating other fossil records on the...

  • Brigham Young Winter Home

    St George was early a retreat for the snowbirds of Utah. As Brigham Young, President of the Mormon Church, got older he sought out relief from the cold winters of Salt Lake City and moved his office to St George. It was Brigham Young who had instigated the settlement of Utah's "Dixie" in hopes to provide cotton for clothing to help the Mormon...

  • St George Art Museum

    This is a great new addition to the city. Built in an old sugar beet seed warehouse the museum has kept the large beams and open space of the original building. We went for a special exhibit featuring paintings of Zion National Park to commemorate its 100th birthday. The paintings we saw both from the juried entries and the permanent exhibit were...

  • St George Tabernacle

    This simple pioneer built structure has been the focal point of the community since it was begun in 1863 only 18 months after the first group of settlers arrived. The people were struggling to plant crops and survive in the hot desert environment, but they felt the need for a gathering place. They began with the basement and once it was complete...

  • Town Square

    This could be said to be the heart of town. Located in the historic district, it consists of one of the large city blocks with a solid stone building anchoring each corner and a park in the middle. The new park finished in 2007 has a fun interactive fountain. There is a small amphitheater and pavilion as well. The northwest corner building was once...

  • Go to Zion National Park

    If you are in the area, a stop at Zion National park is a must. I would suggest seeing it when the shuttles are not running and you can drive the park. This is a narrow canyon and during peak months you have to ride shuttle and can not drive it. There is so much to see just from the car windows! The visitors center is HUGE! Take the drive up Hwy 9...

    If visiting Southern Utah-Zion National Park is a must. It is the most beautiful area with the most stuff available to do. Hike, horseback riding,camping,swimming,an outdoorsmen vacation dream. Beautiful Mountains, waterfalls. We went in July so the water was kind of low,but it was a great camping trip here.

  • Snow Canyon State Park

    Snow Canyon State Park is just outside of St. George. Its a great place to go hiking or rock climbing or to spend a few days at the Red Mountain Spa.There are a variety of trails here, many of which are beginner level. But the small slickrock hills can be quite a workout. If visiting in the summer, its best to time your visit for an early morning...

Also, large blocks of lava rocks are spread on the ground, said to come from a cluster of volcanos just beyond. You can...

Saint George Restaurants

  • Nice Chinese Buffet (esp the Seafood)

    The decor was nothing that special but the food was good as was the service. Good selection of seafood on the buffet.

  • Southern Utah's Premier Seafood Buffet...

    Squeezed in between the commercial anchor stores of Albertson's, Costco and Sportsman's Warehouse you would miss this place unless someone told you it was here, which is exactly why I'm writing this. Southern Utah isn't known for having much diversity in the food arena which was usually a fast food burger joint or smaller restaurant franchise...

    Try hiking or driving up one of the nearby hills for a good view of Saint George and the surroundings. It's especially picturesque at night. My own recommended vista is just outside the airport. Find the lower end of Airport road at the junction of highways 18 and 34.
