Where to stay?

Hi!! My husband and I are planning on visiting St. George for a week in March. We are looking at possible retirement communities. We love Zion and Bryce but have never been to St. George. Where would you recommend staying?? I have been looking at Coral Springs or The Inn at Entrada, or Lava Falls??? Would love your suggestions... We can't wait!!!

St George has lots to do in the area. All of the places you have mentioned would likely be nice to stay at, it just depends on what you are looking for. If you can add more details to what kind of place you are looking for that would be helpful.

Im not familar with Lava Falls though that would be quite far from St George though i believe.

The area for St George is pretty spread out since there are various areas outside of Downtown St George to live in such as Santa Clara, Ivins, Washington, Hurricane, Ect.

One of the nicest areas imo is Ivins, Utah which can also be more expensive, but is a beautiful area to live in, that would be close to the Inn at Entrada Area, and is a nice quieter area to live in.

Snow Canyon is also in that area which is quite beautiful.

Lots of things to do in St George,

Historic homes to visit

Tuacahn Amphitheatre.... is an outdoor threatre located against beautiful redrock cliffs


Dinosaur Museum

Snow Canyon

Here are some photos of Snow Canyon and more info


The Ivins Petroglphs..... are worth seeing as well here is a review as well as photos



And Zion National Park............ is deffinately worth a visit


Here is a list of top 10 things to do,


Pine Valley is also quite beautiful to visit as well as some people do live there year round, it has deer all around, and lots of Pine Trees, A Resevoir with fishing, hiking ect.

Greetings from St George!

Here are a few options to look at!!

www.kayentautah.com It is very lovely there and in the IVINS area...

www.sunriver.com A lovely suburb of St George, off the I-15, right before ST.G. (coming from Vegas). It's a complete senior community...just minutes from downtown St.George. I have many friends who live there and love it!

Bloomington (St George), is a great area for retiring! Golf course, co-op electric company!! Wal Mart, restaurants... Small and comfy! Bloomington is another suburb just beyond SunRiver almost to the city of St. George.

Springdale (Zion NP) is a great little town. It is a bit expensive. The Coral Canyon area in Hurricane just minutes east of St. G. is a wonderful area..

Lava Falls is located in Entrada in the Snow Canyon area...check on

www.vrbo.com for some homes to stay during your week ( for rent by owners.)

St George is a great, safe, quiet community with a great mix of locals, seniors, families young and old. Enjoy all the rich history in the Dixie area!

Called Dixie because Morman members came from Atlanta,GA. to settle this area!!!

Enjoy your "future" hunting!!! Good Luck and Safe Travels!
