St. George is the perfect city for the outdoor adventurer hoping to cross off multiple national parks in one trip.
The city sits on the East Veterans Memorial Highway and is an hour from Zion National Park, two hours from Bryce Canyon National Park, and four hours from the Grand Canyon. An $80 pass allows access to all three for a year. St. George also boasts 292 clear days a year—ideal for visiting Red Rock Golf Trail, where 10 courses offer vista views. Following a long day of hiking outdoors, St. George’s historic downtown area offers good food, a friendly environment—and affordable prices.
