Sightseeing
With its 3 million visitors annually, Zion National Park is one of the top 10 most visited National Parks. Located just 28 miles from Hurricane, the 12 miles scenic Zion, Mt. Carmel Highway, is a must see! The best casual hike is the lower Emerald Pool Trail. It's just 1.2 miles and takes about an hour to walk. Be sure to see the brochure in the white cabinet or ask for a trail brochure when you arrive at the park.

Located in the red rock country near St. George, this park enjoys mild winter weather and seldom receives snow. The park was named after early Utah leaders Lorenzo an Erastus Snow. It offers some 16 miles of hiking trails, technical rock climbing, hiking and horseback riding. All of this is set against a stunning backdrop of towering sandstone cliffs colored red and white. A jumble of black rock casts some ridges and tubes down the hillsides. The sand dunes inside the park make a popular play spot.

Sand Hollow Park is my absolute, hands-down favorite local place. There is so much to do there. It is the perfect place for families and adventure seekers. The change in scenery is ***dramatic***. The park’s beautiful water contrasts against the red rock to create picture-perfect landscapes. Hiking is easy, too. You can rent jet ski's, boats, have a picnic, swim, and if you are feeling adventurous, there is rock outcropping (a favorite spot for jumping off). An ABSOLUTE 'must see'.

Fiesta fun is off the hook for both kids and adults. There are batting cages, mini golf, go carts bumper boats, and an indoor play area for the little ones. Fiesta fun is the #1 spot for birthday parties in St. George for kids. Pizza and tons of games - you will have to yank the kids out of there when you're ready to go!

Less than 2 miles away, hidden in a residential community, is this beautiful park and walking path with places to cook out, walk a dog, have a picnic, and fish in the pond. It is clean, safe, and serene. I go here to run a few miles around the pond. One of my favorite local places to relax and get away from work.

The Tuacahn Center for the Performing Arts is a major attraction with Broadway style productions and concerts performed throughout the year. These performances take place in the 2000 seat outdoor amphitheater. Red sandstone cliffs rise 15000 feet above the stage and make for a dramatic back-drop. Craft fairs are held during the spring, summer and fall and the scenery is stunning! Worth seeing!

Best coffee shop on the way to Zion. You will meet visitors from all over the globe at River Rock Roasting Company. There is nothing like kicking back in the breeze overlooking the valley and river, munching on a homemade cinnamon rolls which is like heaven on earth, and sipping a great cup of coffee. The other food is pretty good, too!

****Be careful leaving the neighborhood.
Traffic comes quickly around the curve from the east. Exercise caution when turning left onto SR 9 (W State St) at the Chevron station. Cars come around the bend faster than you think.

River Rock Roasting Company
Red Rock Roasting Company, La Verkin, is on the way to Zion National Park, and one of my favorite local spots. It's a Bakery, sitting on the edge of a basalt canyon, carved deep by the Virgin River, which offers a variety of fresh roasted coffee, espresso drinks, homemade baked goods, sandwiches, and even beer! https://riverrockroasters.com It's a beautiful view of the canyon and river, and the cinnamon rolls are to die for! You'll also meet the most interesting people from all over the world there.
