For those who prefer their adventures on the cooler side, why not attempt to tame the rapids of one of rivers in the area?
The area is also popular with cultures from all walks of life and often plays host to festivals such as the Utah Festival Opera. Surrounding indulgences also include golfing or fishing, or even a trip to the spa to unwind from a day of exploring the rugged mountain surrounding with a massage.
Dining in St George is a gourmet dream, with a variety of cuisines designed to cater to all tastes. Traditional favorites like pizza and burgers abound in old school diner settings, while Asian flavors can be found at Benja’s Thai Garden to name but one. Take out a night in the town and stop at one of the bar and grill venues for comforting pub food and a drink or two.
The area is also a haven for art collectors with a variety of small art galleries in the surrounds aimed at promoting small and local artists. There are also many museums where visitors can indulge in the cultural history as well as ancient history with such delights like the Dinosaur Discovery Site.
