St. George, Utah: Red Sandstone Formations and Award-Winning Golf Near National Parks
In 1861, Brigham Young aimed to establish a cotton-growing industry in southwest Utah after the Civil War, when there was a low cotton supply. The area chosen, called Utah's Dixie and now St. George, yielded little cotton. However, the region and its commercial hub, St. George, are now popular for their fiery-red sandstone bluffs. Scattered throughout the desert are a half-dozen golf courses, including the award-winning 27-hole Sunbrook Golf Course, as well as rivers and lakes open for swimming, fishing, and hiking. Within 150 miles you’ll also find Zion and Bryce National Parks, home to some of the country’s most stunning Wild-West landscapes, such as mind-blowing rock formations and intricate limestone sculptures called “hoodoos.”
Downtown St. George features unique relics from the city's past as a pioneer town. In the summer, costumed performers entertain tourists at the former winter home of Brigham Young. Notorious Old West outlaws are said to have done time at the old town jail, just steps away at the center of Ancestor Square. Though historical buildings are abundant, the downtown area is home to plenty of contemporary cultural attractions, including art galleries and pottery studios along Main Street.
