Ask any teenagers and they’ll tell you “there’s nothing to do in St. George,” but the rest of us locals know there’s rarely a day or evening in town without several offerings of an entertaining – and professional-quality – play performed by talented actors at numerous community playhouses, on high school or university stages, St. George Musical Theater, Brigham’s Playhouse and more.
Then there are professional concerts brought to us by the Celebrity Concert Series at the Cox Auditorium, Tuacahn Center for the Performing Arts in one of our beautiful red rock canyons, or the Electric Theater on Tabernacle Street in the historic St. George downtown district.
If your idea of entertainment leans more toward Hollywood blockbusters on the big-screen, we have nearly 30 screens in our community. Our Main Street movie theaters are a real bargain at less than $5 any night … and ALL of our Megaplex theaters offer a $5 movie night every Tuesday – including popcorn for $1. Nearby Hurricane, UT has their own theater which – while they don’t offer $5 Tuesdays – is still a bargain with new releases every week.
We also have numerous museums with art work, pioneer memorabilia or natural history … and even one just of kids.
If none of these suggestions peek your interest, there is always sightseeing among our many pioneer structures – Brigham Young’s winter home or Jacob Hamblin’s unique family home in Santa Clara, or Green Gate Village – or strolling along Main Street, including a visit to Town Square with its popular water feature in the center, the Children’s Museum on one corner and the newly renovated LDS Tabernacle on the other corner – open daily for tours – at the virtual center of the St. George community.
