St. George is a remarkable little gem of a town to visit. Although it seems that not too much meets the eye as you pull in, you will find yourself wondering, “what on earth do the residents of this town do for fun? Surely there is more than a few theatres and a tiny mall?”. Maybe it would be easier to widen your perspective? Look around as you pull in, what do you see other than buildings and roads? That’s right, nature.
Here in our sunny little town, we are never let down by the beautiful landscapes that surround us. We literally have some of Utah’s most unique and mesmerizing Natural State and National Parks just a day drive or less away from us.
Since there is so much desert surrounding St. George, there are also a lot of ATV and horse rentals! Enjoy a scenic desert tour on the back of a horse, or driving a UTV!
We have several Reservoirs as well from Sand Hollow located near Hurricane, to Gunlock located near Ivins. Boating, paddleboarding, and so much more is optional when it comes to our amazing lakes!
Aside from the amazing natural landscapes that surround St. George, there are also a lot more activities and fun things to do than you would really think. We have Fiesta Fun which is a family fun center that was recently remodeled and offers bowling, laser tag, arcade games, mini golf, batting cages, go carts, and so much more!
There are several museums here in St. George as well that show off the history of the city as well as wildlife and geology. The Children’s museum has an array of different style rooms and activities for your children to enjoy, then there is the dinosaur museum which tells the history behind the dinosaurs that used to rule this land as well as dinosaur tracks! St. George also has a wildlife museum, and plenty of art museums and showrooms.
Laser Mania is another family fun center similar to Fiesta Fun, where they offer 4D movies, laser tag, mini golf, and much more!
St. George prides itself on being very involved in the Arts, from musicals at Tuacahn, to street art festivals in Kayenta, anywhere in St. George you can be sure to find some form of art. There are several different theatres, most famous here is Tuacahn Amphitheatre. Tuacahn is an outdoor stage where shows like “Grease”, “Little Mermaid” and so much more are performed at by professional dancers, singers, and stuntmen. The stage is framed by the backside of Snow Canyon State Parks stunning red rock formations deep in a canyon. This is quite a fantastic experience for someone visiting for a weekend. There is also Brigham’s playhouse that continuously has different shows going on.
There are several movie theatres as well that play the newest released films if you are just looking for a relaxing night out with a loved one.
Another form of art St. George likes to pride itself on, is the form of relaxation. There are many spas here in St. George that offer only the finest massages, facials, and much more at a affordable cost. What is a vacation without a spa visit?
Next to relaxing at the spa is of course, golfing! Golfing is definitely a St. George favorite, with multiple championship courses, who wouldn’t want to spend a day on the green here? Golfing is bar none one of the best things St. George has to offer.
So wherever you are visiting from, and whatever may peak your interest, St. George has something for everyone. Do not be fooled by our “small, boring town” pre-conceived notion. Behind the scenes, there is so much more. St. George is definitely a gem, and a fantastic place for any length of vacation.
