Destination guide

Enjoy Saint George at vacation home rentals

St. George might be best known for its eye-catching red rocks (trust us, they're much more striking when you see them in person), but those aren't the only natural attractions in this snowbird's sanctuary. St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm has remarkably well-preserved dinosaur tracks and fossil fish, while Zion National Park's colossal sandstone cliffs will leave you in awe. A St. George vacation rental is an ideal base for getting to know this small but fascinating town that's steeped in Mormon history and surrounded with fascinating geologic landscapes.

Things to do

Attractions near Saint George vacation rentals

You'll find museums, galleries, and noteworthy buildings in the historic downtown district, including St. George Tabernacle, whose clock tower is a town landmark, St. George Art Museum, and St. George Children's Museum. At St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm, you can ogle well-preserved dinosaur tracks as well as fish and plant fossils, rare dinosaur bones, and detailed replicas. If all those aren't enough to make dino-obsessed tots (and grownups) squeal, they can also play with dinosaur stencils and rubbings, or look for tracks in a specially designed sandbox.

Dixie is definitely for the outdoorsy types. You can spend your day hiking in a nearby nature park, going on horseback rides or all-terrain vehicle tours, or training for the next Ironman event against scenic red-rock backdrops. If you don't want anything too strenuous, you can always explore the city on foot—we can pretty much guarantee that your phone's photo gallery will be full of snapshots of red rocks after just a couple of hours. Shopaholics, rejoice, as St. George vacation rentals will put you close to the historic downtown shopping district and a few malls.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Saint George vacation homes

Natural features

St. George's cityscape is anything but boring

Even within its urban areas, you're never far from hills, mesas, and waterways, and yes, red rocks. For the best views of the city, head up to Pioneer Park, which also houses the Dixie Red Rock—in case you're not sure which red rock it is, it's the one with "DIXIE" painted on it in big white letters. Pioneer Park is great for picnics, barbecues, and hikes, but if you want to up the ante, Zion National Park has riverside forest trails, waterfalls, and an abundance of plant and animal life.
