Pulling into St. George Utah was truly an Oasis from a long desert drive from California. We skipped the business of Las Vegas and drove to this small clean town called St. George. Our hotel at Abby Inn was perfect and we bought tickets to Disney "the Little Mermaid" outdoor theatre at Tuacahn, just outside St. George. I thought while buying the tickets, "oh it just a Disney, probably too young for my teens." I was so wrong! This production was FABULOUS for young and old. The engineering feat working with the shows water was a MUST SEE!
Moreover, in the center of town there is a WHITE SHINING BUILDING in the middle of town. You can't miss it! It is like an Angel watching over the town. We drove right up to it. There is plenty of parking. The Building is a religious temple that has beautiful gardens surrounding it. There is a lovely air conditioned visitor center that tells you all about the building and has short 10 minute films , completely free of charge, about family subjects you would want your children or teens to think about. My two teens and I left discussing the rest of our trip about the purpose of life, our family goals. This was a great stop to do something uniquely different than most entertainment!
