Visiting St. George & Southern Utah

Summer - spectacular southern Utah is alive. St. George, southern Utah’s largest community, is a gateway to Zion National Park, as well as home to ten of Utah’s best golf courses. From traditional events like the Washington County Fair and the Dixie Lions Round-Up Rodeo, to summer outdoor movies at the St. George Town Square, this is the season for a southern Utah getaway. Theater fans flock to St. George for performances at Tuachan Amphitheatre, 10-miles north of the city in Ivins. See Disney’s Aladdin, and award winning Hairspray through summer, or check for special events including Huey Lewis and the News in concert.

Runners visiting Bryce Canyon National Park and Bryce Canyon City, don’t miss the 2012 Bryce Canyon Half Marathon and Bryce Canyon Rim Run and Walk. The Bryce Canyon Half Marathon is July 14th, and also includes a 5K run. The point-to-point race begins near Bryce Canyon City and finishes in Cannonville Town Park. Some good news, the course features an elevation drop of over 1,500 feet as racers descend down Bryce Canyon National Park.

Races don’t get more scenic than the August 25th Rim Run, with a 5-mile course lined with Ponderosa pines and spectacular views of Bryce Canyon. Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Rim Run, after the finish with a cowboy lunch and entry to the Bryce Country Rodeo. Ruby’s Inn, a mainstay of Bryce Canyon, hosts the Bryce Canyon Country Rodeo Wednesdays through Saturdays through the end of August. For the adventurous, adults can try their luck at Steer Riding and the kids can try Sheep Riding.
