Zion National Park
You may ask whats so unique about hiking or swimming in St. George, Utah? Will my kids really enjoy this or just wish they were in Disneyland the whole time? As mentioned before, we are surrounded by SEVERAL National and State Parks. One of my favorites is the famous Zion National Park. Zions is for all ages. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or more of a laid back traveler, you will get the most out of your travel experience when you get to the park. They provide several hikes (appropriate for children) that will give you a since of adventure and vacation. Some of these hikes include:
Emerald Pools – Dubbed to be one of the most popular hiking spots, the water comes from the Virgin River and flows to 2 different pools brushing against the cliff. You will be able to enjoy a refreshing swim after the hike! The trail can be quite strenuous so this perfect for those who are in search of a challenging hike. After a rain, you can also see waterfalls.
Angels Landing – A widely famous tourist spot that offers dramatic and surreal hiking experience, you should not miss out on Angels Landing. Visitors can walk up to the mid-canyon and enter the narrow section of the upper canyon where you will see the trail known as the Walter’s Wiggles. After reaching this spot, you will have to go through a narrow fin. Both sides have a drop-off of about 1000 ft. Go up to the last section of the trail that will lead you to the top. After this great accomplishment swing by one of the Ice Cream Shop at Zion for their famous ice cream cones!
Sand Hollow Reservoir
St. George also offers Sand Hollow Lake. Bring your boat and enjoy the chance to wake board, knee board, go tubing and even cliff jumping! Sand Hollow also has a sandy beach that goes on for miles! You can play sand volley ball, have a picnic, just swim and even plan to camp over night! My family would spend our summer nights camping on the beach and those are memories I still smile about today!
Sand Hollow is also surrounded by several Dunes where you can bring your ATV’s and hit the sand! One of my favorite activities is Four Wheeling with my own family. Great memories have been created on The Dunes!
