About St George

St George was initially founded as a cotton mission in 1861, but with the arrival of the railway, visitors began to come in their droves to Zion National Park and tourism quickly became the main economy here. Despite the influx of tourists, St George retains its sleepy, peaceful vibe and is a popular spot for retirees due to the warm, desert climate.

Families looking for an active break will find Zion National Park and Snow Canyon State Park within easy driving distance, and renting a car is the best way to ensure you see all that this corner of southwest Utah has to offer.

You’ll find restaurants serving an array of international cuisine here, but for the ultimate authentic experience, order a Utah Scone. A far-cry from English scones, these huge, deep-fried treats are a take on the Mexican Sopapilla, and they’re delicious!

What to do

Head for Zion National Park where you can enjoy hiking miles of trails, biking, climbing, canyoneering and wildlife spotting. Drop into the Zion Canyon Visitor Center for a guide to the available activities, or catch an evening movie with the family at the Canyon Theater. Snow Canyon State Park is also worth visiting, with its 7400 acres of easy trails.

Kids will love the Dinosaur Discovery Site, where you can see the casts of dinosaur tracks from the Jurassic era. These are some of the best-preserved tracks in the world, unearthed in 2000.

Take a stroll around the historic downtown district and spot buildings like the Opera House and the Old Pioneer Courthouse, or visit the Rosenbruch Wildlife Museum and the McQuarrie Memorial Pioneer Museum (entrance is free).
