Visiting St. George soon? These are the 5 MUST do – things to do in St George!
1. Explore Historical Sites:
The St. George Temple and St. George Tabernacle are gorgeous. The temple has a visitors center and the tabernacle is open for tours. The buildings are a big part of St. George history. Another great place is Brigham Young’s home – see how the pioneers lived. And the Jacob Hamlin home too.
2. Great Parks:
St. George has some of the best city parks in the state. The best and most unique is Pioneer Park. There is nowhere else in the county that you can climb and explore the red rocks. It’s every child’s dream come true – and every big kids too!
3. Go Swimming:
It’s hot there – all year round. That’s wonderful, right? Get out of heat and enjoy the water. Most hotels have swimming pools. Another great indoor/outdoor pool is at the Washington rec center.
If your happy to be outdoors, there are three main reservoirs in the St. George area for boating, swimming and other water sports:
• Gunlock State Park
• Quail Creek State Park
• Sand Hollow State Park
4. Children’s museum:
The St George Children’s Museum is unlike any other children’s museum. Technically it’s free of charge, but they do ask for a donation. This is a MUST if you have children.
5. Visit Dinosaur Tracks:
This is a Utah must. There are several places to see dinosaurs but Johnson’s Farm Dinosite. It has tracks, replicas and a children’s area.
Looking for a place to stay?
St. George has several great hotels. We love The Lexington. It is a 3 star hotel and nice – but with a great price. You can also rent a condo at several different locations – this is great for a bigger group.
