Nice little relax walk thru the Square. Plenty of restaurants and historic stops. Good central area to all of downtown. This is touring at your leisure yourself..Free parking.

To me it was just a bunch of restaurants and stores in a very tight, small area. Parking lot was a nightmare. Better to visit Town Square.

This lovely little area contains some of the nicer, higher priced restaurants in St. George. Also houses a few companies and salons. I don't see going there unless you had one of the fine restaurants in mind to patronize. It is in a strategic location...More

Really just a shopping center & some businesses and offices, could be a lot more. St George could do a lot more with it's historic downtown, especially as the gateway to the National Parks. George's is a good place to eat.

Ancestor Square alone is a simple place, but when combined with fine dining, shopping, and some walking down main street, it can be the best place in St. George. The history is engrossing, so do take time to read historical plaques and walk around the...More

What a perfect place to host a Farmer's Market during the summer months in St George. As tourists, my wife and I enjoyed the 'local goods'. The setting could not be better. The water feature in the center of the Square, the live music, the...More

The Focus of Ancestor Square is Mormon history and family fun whether it be visiting the Children's museum, the park or the water fountain area. There is a multi level free parking garage and a few restaurants.

The Ancestor Square is nice to walk around. You will find for instance a very old jail that was used in the past. There are also a few restaurants around the square and easy accessible from the square.
