As we all know St. George is kind of a get-a-way for local Salt Lake City locals. If you're looking for a quick vacation and most importantly want to get away from the cold weather, then St. George is it. The climate is always a little warmer down south in St. George. The city is also common for having a lot of retired people from Salt Lake City move down there, because the warm weather does well on their aging bones. It is kind of like the western version of Florida for New Yorkers. If people on the west coast want to get away they usually think of Florida. West of the Mississippi there are many choices when it comes to outdoor recreation. Here in Utah...St. George is the destination for weekenders and outdoor enthusiasts. The other part which is quite unique and great is that St. George has a lot of family oriented activities. Of course that plays well with Salt Lake City, since there are a lot of families with kids.

So with that in mind, what are some of the attractions that St. George has which closer destinations might not have so readily available? Of course, there is Moab which is closer and is truly a gateway to many amazing National Parks that Utah is so renown for. But with Saint George it is a might think and say more family oriented and has more options other than just outdoor activities.

Let's think of some St. George attractions which are great for kids and parents alike. 


  So ok let’s say you don’t have any kids and just want a night on the town, look no further St. George is the place. Really if you’re looking for a quick date with your wife or companion then there are plenty options for the childless couple. If you’re hungry there are more than one steakhouses in town, including Italian, Salvadoran, European, Mexican, and many more. Here is a list of some of the best restaurant restaurants in town:

Afterwards you can go out for some performing arts or just plain fun activities like bowling, mini golf, laser tag, arcades, battling cages, or just go see a movie at the cinema. Here is a list of some performing arts centers and activity places for your night out with your date:



As you can see St. George has several options for a family outing or a nice small date with a loved one. Not to mention anything about the fact that Las Vegas is nearby and Zions National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and Bryce Canyon National Park is close by too. If you're out of town or out of state, or maybe outside of the U.S. there are major airlines that fly in and out of St. George mainly, United, Delta, American Airlines, and Skywest Airlines. You can book a flight or plan your next trip on TripAdvisor

Some people don't appreciate the ride, but rather only focus on th
