Come Celebrate Valentine’s Day in St. George!

If our sunshine and lack of ice and snow won’t get you down to the southern end of the state, let some of our activities entice you.

For a romantic weekend getaway head to the Zion Canyon Bed & Breakfast in Springdale, UT. This bed & breakfast is located right outside Zion National Park and offers a gourmet two-course breakfast in the dining room each morning.  Spend the day hiking in the beautiful canyon while enjoying the sunshine and majesty of places such as the Emerald Pools (a personal favorite) and Angels Landing (a popular destination).

After a long day hiking in the canyon, head on over to Switchback Grille for amazing food in a remarkable setting. My favorite is the Spit Roasted Chicken with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Vegetables and a Chardonnay Herb Glaze. Holy Moly! It’s so delicious and hits the spot after an invigorating day at Zions. Switchback also has the best breakfast buffet I have ever had. The food is fresh and there is a wonderful variety, whether you want rich and creamy or light and satisfying. After a relaxing dinner with the one you love, head on out for some entertainment. Catch an IMAX movie at the Zion Canyon Giant Screen Theater (now in 3D) or head on down to Wildcat Willies for some live entertainment.

If you head to St. George and decide you would like to stay in town, spend your weekend at The Seven Wives Inn Bed and Breakfast.

“The Seven Wives Inn Bed and Breakfast located in downtown Saint George, Utah is a historic treasure in the painted southwest desert. Two grand Victorian homes on a well-groomed, green acre offer a selection of thirteen casually elegant rooms from standards to suites all with their own private bath. Included with every stay is a superb breakfast served up fresh every morning, always gourmet and always delicious.”

They offer an outdoor pool, spa services, Tuacahn and Golf packages and are within walking distance to many local shops and restaurants.  Near-by you’ll find the Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm, the Tuacahn Amphitheater, the LDS Temple, Ancestor Square and Main Street.

For some local flair, Texas Roadhouse is offering a Valentine’s Value weekend! They will be featuring 3 of there legendary entrees which includes the BBQ Chicken and Ribs combo (my hubby’s favorite), the 12 oz Rib-eye and the 12 oz Prime Rib. I love Texas Roadhouse for their rolls and cinnamon butter. Oh baby.

In order to round-out your weekend getaway, you will need to order flowers from The Flower Market and pick-up a box of chocolates at our local See’s candy store located by the Red cliffs Mall.

So, come to the sun and fun here in St. George. Visitors always welcome!
