Visiting St. George & Southern Utah

Scenic Southern Utah basks in temperate winter temperatures while northern communities enjoy Utah’s greatest snow on earth. St George and surrounding communities swell as retirees flock to the Southern Utah for the winter climate and beautiful scenery. Southern Utah is known world wide as the location of Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, among additional state parks and wilderness areas. Stunning views delight visitors along journeys through Southern Utah from St George and Cedar City to Bryce Canyon City and Moab. Allow plenty of time for your travel plans portions of Interstate 15 and I-70 can slow when it snows.

The temperate climate of Saint George means a bonus for winter birding fans visiting Southern Utah. The Red Cliffs Audubon Society presents the 2012 St George Winter Bird Festival January 26th through the 28th.

Athletes get ready for an exciting new course at the 2012 St George Half Marathon and 5K January 21st. Join the 5K start at the Dixie Center at 8:50 before the 9am half marathon starts.

Springdale is a small town with helpful stops like the Zion Canyon Arts and Humanities Council’s Z-Arts!, Canyon Community Center and Zion Canyon Visitor’s Bureau.

Cedar City, less than 60 miles north of Springdale, is just off Interstate 15. Home of Southern Utah University, Cedar City is an energetic, yet small, college town.
