Visiting St. George & Southern Utah

St George is one of the west's best kept secrets. A clean, safe, small city - temperate climate with mild winter, set amongst beautiful red rock and mountain scenery - within two hours of Las Vegas. Packing your bags? Good, its a great place to visit, get a jump on spring and relax with a few rounds of golf. St George is the largest city in Southern Utah and offers visitors year round recreation opportunities.

St George is close to Zion National Park, north off Interstate 15. With spectacular almost other worldly scenery, spring is one of the best times to visit. Lovely warm spring weather without the summer crowds, gives visitors a chance to ponder and soak in the unbelievable sights in peace and solitude. Take a walk through a small narrow canyon or hike through the majestic cliffs and get intimate with Utah's first national park.

Cedar City sits just north of Zion National Park on Interstate 15, is billed as Festival City USA. Home of Southern Utah University, there is a lot for visitors to enjoy. The Thunderbird Film Festival, held on the SUU campus April 9-10, is in its seventh year. The festival focus is on family values, and hosts competitions at a high school and amateur levels. A unique festival to support budding film makers and showcase their films.

2010 finds Cedar City's GrooveFest joining with the Cedar City Arts Festival in June. This collaboration promises to result in one heck of a great time. Four days of music, arts and crafts, food and activities, fun for the entire family. Local merchants and organizations pitch in with sponsorships making admission free for visitors, and demonstrating local enthusiasm and support for the arts.

Springdale, is the closest city to Zion National Park, sitting just outside the south entrance to the park. Surrounded on three sides by the Park, Springdale, has become a gateway for visitors. May 2010 brings the 6th Annual Zion Flute and Drum Festival to Springdale. A unique festival brings together world class flute and drum enthusiasts from across the globe to perform and celebrate world peace. Performers, drum and flute makers and artists gather, drawn to Springdale by the passion for music and their arts. Enjoy the music and learn from the best instructors – shadowed by the stunning backdrop of Zions National Park.

Southern Utah, down highway 89 through Mt Carmel and Kanab, is the gateway to the north rim of the Grand Canyon. The north rim opens in 2010, the morning of May 15th. Amazing Earthfest will be celebrated in Kanab, May 16th-22nd, celebrating in the magnificent surroundings of the Colorado Plateau. Enjoy the scenery and weather on bicycle, both road and trail rides will be featured. Other activities include rock climbing, camping, backpacking and hiking.
