Spring Break in St. George


Reagan had Spring Break this past week and we decided to drive a few hours south and spend a couple of days in the sunshine. We left Thursday afternoon after a quick stop in Spanish Fork for dinner and then hit the road. We made it to St. George with just enough time for a little swim in the hotel pool before bed. On Friday Jordan woke up early and went on a bike ride while the girls and I slept in.... until 7:30... Ok. We didn't sleep in, but we did enjoy some Saturday morning cartoons before heading down to breakfast at the hotel.

After breakfast we drove over to Snow Canyon State Park to play at the Sand Dunes. The girls had never been to any kind of Sand Dunes and I think they loved it. We had a great time playing in the sand for a few hours. We started to get hungry about the same time it started to get really crowded. After a quick drive around the rest of the park we decided it was time for lunch. Reagan said she wanted tacos so we drove back into town and headed to Angelica's. I saw this place on a few different St. George restaurant lists and the internets were right. It was tasty. After lunch we went back to the hotel to get our swimming suits so we could go to Thunder Junction Park. We spent a few hours there exploring all of the different parts of the park. We loved the Splash Pad, Zip-lines, and of course the train ride was definitely a highlight.

Before dinner we went to see the temple and Visitor's Center. I love the stark contrast between the beautiful red rocks and bright white temple. So gorgeous and special. For dinner we got pizza at Riggatti's on Main Street and ate it in the grass across the street as we watched people set up for the street festival Georgefest. We didn't stay to listen to the bands but we did the next best thing which was getting concretes at Nielsen's. We got our ice cream to go and headed back to the hotel for more swimming, and watching Shrek on TV before bed.

Saturday morning, after another tasty continental breakfast at the hotel, we packed up the car and drove out to Sand Hollow. We decided to rent some kayaks for a few hours and enjoy some time out on the water. Kayaking was another new activity for the girls and we all had a great time. After our two hour rental ended we decided on Viva Chicken for lunch, with a quick stop at Swig before starting our trek up North.


  1. So much fun! The girls are already well traveled but this is special since you can do it again and again without too many painful miles in the car. The menu sounds like my kind of food.

  2. That sand Reagan is sitting on looks SO comfy :) I love love the contrast of that temple too. They must white wash that thing so frequently, it’s amazing how white it is!!
