St George Utah Tourism
Washington County was once based primarily on agriculture. But, today the tourist industry is its primary source of business, attracting visitors worldwide.
From as low as 2,000 feet above sea level at the bottom of the Virgin Gorge, to well over 10,000 feet at the peak of Pine Valley Mountain, you will discover within a short radius of the cities of St. George, Hurricane, Springdale, Ivins and Santa Clara, some of the most beautiful scenes found anywhere. The crown jewel of it all is Zion National Park. Add to that, the state parks, ghost towns, canyons, coves, deserts, streams, golf courses, mineral pools, tennis courts, swimming holes, pioneer buildings, horse back riding, bicycling, hiking and you have discovered the unique vacation that awaits you in Utah’s Washington County.
Both indoor and outdoor theatres offer outstanding productions depicting the heritage and natural beauty of the area. Art museums, Historical Sites, Tours and Family Fun Centers keep tourists as well as those who live in the county busy. St. George is also known for its annual St. George Marathon, Huntsman World Senior Games, Rotary Bowl, and famous “Dixie Roundup”.
There is plenty of shopping with the Zion Factory Stores, Promenade Mall, Costco, Super-Wal-Mart, Target, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Big Lots and the Red Cliffs Mall in the St. George area with the gift and specialty stores in the Zion Park/Hurricane area.
