Sand Hollow State Park

This gloriously beautiful state park is one of several manmade reservoirs designed to capture and preserve what little water falls from the heavens above here in our hot, dry, desert location.  Officially opened for public use in April 2003, Sand Hollow State Park surrounds the 1322-acre Sand Hollow Reservoir, which rapidly became a popular off-road site for fishing, boating and ATV riding on nearby sand dunes. 

You’ll find Sand Hollow State Park outside of the city of Hurricane, off Exit 16 of the I-15 freeway, but be warned … as is often the case for most of our outdoor recreation spots, you are likely to be extremely uncomfortable on the lake during the summer months of June, July and August when daytime temperatures generally reach 105-110 degrees.

Being uncomfortable is something you don’t need to worry about when you register online today for a clean, comfortable, and affordable vacation home-away-from-home at St. George Resort Rentals at stgeorgeresortrentals.com  or at laspalmasresortcondos.com for Five Seasons Vacation condominiums.   We can’t wait to meet you … or welcome you back!

Kite flying brings families together, welcomes spring, and, in the case of the 17th Annual Dixie Power Kite Festival, held again this year at SunRiver in St. George, gives children an exciting reward for their efforts to develop reading as a habit for learning and fun. 

Held this year on Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at SunRiver St. George, the Kite Festival has a long history as a family-oriented event with a goal of having “everyone participate regardless of experience, training, financial means or physical ability.”  Toward that goal – and a secondary goal of “promoting reading as a fundamental basis of education for every elementary age child” – the Dixie Power Kite Festival will provide a high-quality kite or age appropriate book to children who qualify through their reading efforts.  If you have your own favorite kite, there will be plenty of blue sky in which to fly it!

This family-friendly one-day event has no fees for parking, admission, entertainment or fireworks – and there is no cost to ride the shuttle.  In addition to kite flying, other activities include free games and fees of $1-$2 for such goings-on as bouncy toys, small trains and other rides.  And, there will also be plenty of reasonably-priced but yummy food available from an assortment of local vendors. 

One of many highlights throughout a day of continuous entertainment will be performances by the recent winners of “Dixie’s Got Talent” from 6 – 7 p.m.

There’s lots to see and do at the Kite Festival and other springtime events here in Southern Utah. For more information about the Dixie Power Kite Festival, see dixiepowerkitefestival.com.  To reserve your beautiful, comfortable and affordable vacation rental under our crystal clear blue sky and overlooking the spectacular red hills of Dixie, find us online at stgeorgeresortrentals.com for accommodations at the St. George Resort Rentals or laspalmasresortcondos.com for Five Seasons Vacation condominiums.  We’ll be waiting for you!

Alfred Lord Tennyson, poet laureate of Great Britain and Ireland said,  “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.”  But, in the spring, the heart of a young man (or woman) also turns to gardening.  That’s why, since 2006 here in Southern Utah, thousands of lovers of the soil can be found at the 15th Annual Spring Home and Garden Expo, Southern Utah’s largest and most complete showcase of  all-things-garden and landscape.  On the weekend of March 18-19 at the Dixie Center in St. George, you’ll find more than 100 vendors with amazing ideas, information, inspiration and home, gardening and landscape experts who can help you create the backyard of your dreams. 

You’ll find everything from landscape rock designs, gorgeous tile outlays, the latest faucet heads for your kitchen sink, hot tubs, and even vibrating pillows … in short, ideas and products available to make the interior and the exterior of your home beautiful.  Learn to prune your trees, mulch your soil, create magnificent flower beds or find out more about low maintenance synthetic grass.

But, if you’re thinking about taking a break from yard work back home to enjoy a week or a month vacationing in Southern Utah, you’ll want to check out our beautiful, affordable and comfortable vacation resort rentals.  Find St. George Resort Rentals online at stgeorgeresortrentals.com  or  laspalmasresortcondos.com for Five Seasons Vacation condominiums.

Utah’s reputation as the home of some of the world’s greatest downhill skiing began to build in the 1930’s.  That reputation was officially “cast in stone” when in 1995, the International Olympic Committee selected Salt Lake City as the site for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.  And why not, since northern Utah, with an impressive cluster of amazing ski resorts, including Alta, Brighton, Snow Bird, Deer Valley, and Sundance have welcomed skiers from all over the world for decades.

While southern Utah is better known for spectacular national parks and desert-style outdoor recreation such as hiking, biking, rock climbing and camping, a quirk of Mother Nature and geography has placed Brian Head, another of the state’s great ski resorts, just 90 minutes from St. George.  As a result, more and more people prove the claim that its possible to get in a comfortable morning round of golf in St. George and a great afternoon of skiing at Brian Head – all on the same winter day.

Twelve miles up the canyon from Parowan on Utah Hwy. 143 (off the I-15 freeway), Brian Head is not only the most southern of Utah’s ski resorts, it also has the designation as the highest-altitude resort in the state, with elevations ranging from 9,600 to 11,307 feet above sea level.  At that elevation, great snow conditions can be guaranteed throughout most of the winter. 

Skiing at Brian Head is one more exciting experience to enjoy on your winter vacation in St. George.  So pack your golf clubs – and your skis – then register online today at stgeorgeresortrentals.com for accommodations at the St. George Resort Rentals or laspalmasresortcondos.com for Five Seasons Vacation condominiums. We’ll be waiting for you!

This picturesque 240-acre reservoir, located 15 miles northwest of St. George off U. S. Highway 91, captures water from the Santa Clara River for irrigation and flood-control purposes in a majestic red rock and black lava rock setting.  Named after the nearby small community of Gunlock, the lake, created in 1970, is approximately 2 miles wide, about a half mile wide and reaches a depth of 115 feet.  Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy boating, windsurfing, waterskiing, personal watercrafts and great fishing for largemouth bass, black crappie, threadfin shad and channel catfish.  Because boating options are few in and around our high desert Southwestern Utah community, Gunlock is popular and usually very busy.  We suggest early- and late-season use when the sun is still comfortably warm.  You are also advised to avoid weekends and holidays at Gunlock for a much more enjoyable experience.  Be aware, there is an excellent boat ramp and port-a-potties available, but not much else.  So whenever you decide to visit Gunlock Reservoir State Park, be sure to bring along your sunscreen, a broad rimmed hat and a picnic lunch, including plenty of drinking water.

No need to fish around for a great deal on a comfortable resort rental for your next Southern Utah vacation.   

Whether you are here for a week or a month, we will be waiting to make you comfortable at the 5 Seasons Vacation condominiums and St. George Resort Rentals.  Register online today at stgeorgeresortrentals.com for accommodations at the St. George Resort Rentals or laspalmasresortcondos.com for Five Seasons Vacation condominiums. 

The Hurricane Canal, which for more than 80 years carried Virgin River water from the “upriver” communities of Springdale, Rockville and Virgin to homes and farms on the Hurricane Bench, is an engineering miracle.  The story of its construction by second-generation settlers is one of backbreaking labor, creative innovation and sustained determination against the odds. 

The canal is a suspended rock-lined delivery channel on the hillside on your right, clearly visible to tourists and residents traveling to Zion National Park.  You may not recognize it as you motor through small communities and up the hill toward the park, but this 17.5-mile waterway was chipped through rock cliffs by 3 – 300 laborers using only picks and shovels – and an occasional blast of dynamite – to bring water to the parched Hurricane Valley.  Today, there are other water sources for farming and ranching in this part of Washington County, but it is thanks to a handful of visionary men committed to stay put and raise their families here that the Hurricane Canal was built.

The Hurricane Canal, dry since 1985, is now a pleasant and memorable hike.  There are places where the canal has been ravaged by years of neglect, and there are the anticipated critters along the way, so hikers should be alert but will certainly find lots to enjoy, including seashells along your way – left over from the ancient Lake Bonneville which millions of years ago covered this part of Utah to the tops of the mesas. 

A word of warning:  hiking the Hurricane Canal is not advised in the heat of the summer.  Despite its name and history, there is no water anywhere along the way.  Exploring the canal is something you will want to do on your vacation in Southern Utah, but it is best done in the cool part of the year (mid-November to mid-February) and always with reliable, close-toed shoes, a big brimmed hat and lots of bottled water.

No warning is necessary when it comes to finding a beautiful resort rental as your home-away-from-home when vacationing in St. George.  Whether you are here for a week or a month, we will be waiting to make you comfortable after your hiking adventure at the 5 Seasons Vacation condominiums and St. George Resort Rentals.  Register online today at stgeorgeresortrentals.com for accommodations at the St. George Resort Rentals or laspalmasresortcondos.com for Five Seasons Vacation condominiums.

We also know that those friends and family don’t always have enough room in their home to host your whole family or group in their home during your stay.
