St. George

Taking your family to a Utah visit may not be enjoyable to your toddler and pre-adolescent teens — unless you plan for kid-friendly activities. Go to child-friendly places so your kids enjoy the trip and remember fond memories.

Family-friendly Tours at Zion National Park

The Zion National Park is one of the grandest natural sites that St. George can offer to any tourist. It features lush forests and active wildlife in their natural habitat of plateaus and valleys surrounded by high mountains, cliffs, and canyons.

Motels in St. George, Utah, offer tour options, each with different places included. There are short and easy trails for hiking, such as The Emerald Pool Trail, Canyon Overlook Trail, and the Riverside Walk. Each of these trails lets you enjoy nature and at the same time strengthen your bonds with your children.

Fairy Tale Plays at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre

Who doesn’t love fairy tales? Adults know the stories of Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Snow White by heart. Well, at St. George, these stories are brought to life theatrically in a very unique stage — with an actual canyon as the backdrop.

The whole theater and the audience seats are within a canyon. The Tuacahn Theatre frequently features well-loved Broadway plays and musicals, including fairy tale favorites. Do check the shows there for a family-friendly performance you will never forget.

Animal Discovery at Rosenbruch Wildlife Museum

Imagine viewing more than 300 animals within one facility. There are also insects and other displays. The exhibits are organized according to habitat, which makes exploring the area fairly easy to do.

Show your children the animals they’ve never seen yet. Even adults can learn new things in the museum. This is a perfect place to go if it’s too hot outside for excursions. The treasures of nature displayed here can only be rivaled by the treasured time you spend with your family.

With all of these options, your family trip to Utah will be enjoyable for everyone. Get your kids ready, go out, and enjoy these famous St. George sights. Enjoy!

    If you’re aiming for a kid-friendly place, I highly recommend the Snow Canyon State Park. It’s a place where kids can play, enjoy and explore the best natural attractions St. George has to offer. You can also relax here instead of going for thrill rides that are not for the tired and fainthearted.

    Well, if you are tired of telling stories to your kids about fairy tales and whatnot, then I agree that the theater at Tuacahn should be your go-to place. It has shows about Disney characters, which truly makes it the “Broadway in the Desert.”

    Dixie Red Rock is also a good place to crash with friends and family
