There’s really not much about our hometown we don’t like … so “warning” visitors away from anything here in the fastest growing community in the U. S., may seem counter-intuitive. But, to be sure you enjoy every aspect of your vacation in our community, here are five suggestions of things we think you’ll want to avoid when vacationing in St. George:

1. Dixie Regional Medical Center

The major medical referral center for northwestern Arizona, southeastern Nevada and southern Utah are Dixie Regional Medical Center, a nationally recognized and award-winning, 245-bed member of Intermountain Health Care, Inc., a corporation President Barack Obama identified by name and called, “a possible national model in big health care.”

Ironman Running

Ironman 70.3

Described as an early-season race with breathtaking American Southwest scenery, and fresh, crisp, spring air. The Ironman 70.3 in St. George, Utah was voted by participants as “Best Race Venue” and “Best Host City Experience”. It is thought by some triathletes to be the nation’s 2nd toughest Ironman 70.3 Triathlon.

Set in Southern Utah’s spectacularly beautiful red rock country, approximately 2500 ironmen – and ironwomen – will run a half marathon of 13.1 miles through the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, complete a 56-mile bicycle ride and swim 1.2 miles at Sand Hollow Reservoir – all completed in succession within 17 hours beginning at 7 a.m. and ending no later than midnight.

The Snow Canyon climb is a difficult task to complete, but is lined with motivational posters from the local tri clubs. If you are a returning athlete – even a newcomer – you’ll be pleased to know the first eight miles of the bike course through Snow Canyon have been repaved, and are now “smooth as silk.”

Before and after this grueling event, you’ll also enjoy the city’s walkable downtown area, which offers great local fare and boutique shopping. Perfect for enjoying the sunny spring weather (be prepared for daytime temperatures in the 90’s). Also remember, St. George is only two hours from the nightlife of Las Vegas, with its never-ending entertainment options.
