Visiting St. George & Southern Utah

Fall is prime time for a visit to Southern Utah, home of Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Kanab, St George and surrounding communities are ideal hosts for travelers through the region. Golf courses dot the region from Mount Carmel’s Thunderbird Golf Course; Coral Canyon, Dixie Red Hills and SunRiver Golf Courses in St George; or Cedar City’s Cedar Ridge Golf Course – fall weather is ideal to hit the links. Or, get the last hikes and mountain bike rides in through beautiful fall foliage on the trails of Brian Head Resort Bike Park and Dixie National Forest.
