Surrounded by cactus gardens, sandstone spires, and a rich pioneer history, this tranquil desert sanctuary rests far from the bustle of everyday life. St. George is located deep in the heart of Utah’s Dixie country, a region of monumental wonders brushed with subtle, sun-drenched colors.
From dinosaurs to the Anasazi, many creatures and cultures have left their mark on the region—but it is the slow erosion of sandstone that has created the most remarkable imprint. Hike the canyon trails of Zion National Park, walk in the footsteps of the dinosaurs at the Johnson’s Farm archeological site, or spend the day exploring Anasazi petroglyphs. Two and a half hours driving will take you to the sculpted stone of Bryce Canyon.
