Ten More Things to See, Taste and Try in St. George

It’s no secret that St. George is a popular vacation destination for many families. So a few years back we shared the Top Ten Things to See, Taste and Try in St. George. It’s been pinned hundreds of times!

It was so popular, we asked Studio 5 Contributor Courtney Orton to share Ten More Things to See, Taste and Try in St. George!

1. Visit Pine Valley

Pine Valley is a beautiful and charming little town just 45 minutes from St. George off Highway 18. Take a walk or bike ride on the Santa Clara River Walkway (my mother in law calls it the roller coaster) – so scenic and so beautiful! Take a tour of the historic Pine Valley chapel (the oldest LDS chapel in continuous use) and eat dinner at the Brandin’ Iron Steakhouse – be sure to get the famous baked beans!

2. Ernie’s Too

The fried chicken and homemade dipping sauces are delicious at Ernie’s Too inside the Sinclair on St. George boulevard. It’s perfect to grab before a picnic or even on your way out of town. Yummy!

3. Breakfast at Tifiny’s

This fun restaurant on Bluff Street is known for its crepes, but I like to order the Orange Oatmeal & Quinoa – it kind of tastes like an orange creamsicle!

4. Blue Linen Boutique

St. George has never really been known for its shopping (we always went to Las Vegas) but things have gotten better! Drop into the Blue Linen Boutique right off River Road for darling kids items and totally on trend clothing for women!

5. Cliffside Restaurant

The only place to get dinner with a view of St. George! Spectacular at night, but you can get lunch too! The Fish Taco Trio is our favorite.

6. Spin Park

Cottonwood Cove Park is so fun – almost everything spins! It’s just off Dixie Drive in the Green Valley area.

7. Yant Flat and Candy Cliffs

It’s about a 45 minute drive to the trailhead, but it is breathtaking once you’re there! Patterned sandstone and slickrock bowls – it’s a must see!

8. Tuacahn Saddle Hike

Okay, that’s not its real name – it’s technically called Padre Canyon in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. It’s a little strenuous, but it is worth the extra effort it takes! And of course, hitting a show or concert at Tuacahn is always a good idea!

9. Play Pickle Ball

It’s kind of like tennis, but with a different spin. There are a dozen courts in Little Valley, and other scattered throughout the city. It’s certainly a fun way to enjoy the outdoor air and a little exercise!

10. The Sugar Cookie

This little store tucked in a strip center off River Road has the yummiest cookies. I like the bite size sugar cookies – there are 12 different frosting flavors but my favorite is coconut! They also have rolled sugar cookies, shortbread, snickerdoodles, and peanut butter!
