More Fun in More Ways
Posted in: Travel on May 22, 2012.
As much as we like the great outdoors, sometimes it’s nice to supplement camping and hiking with other activities. If you’re looking for other things to do in Southern Utah, consider these suggestions. We at The Lodge at Red River Ranch think you can make the perfect vacation by adding a few of these ideas into your itinerary.
Golfing – Who doesn’t love picking up a few holes now and then? Saint George has an impressive collection of private and public greens. More than a dozen golf courses are open year round. Check them out here.
Skiing – Planning to take a winter break? Try Brian Head Ski Resort near Cedar City. Brian Head offers cross-country loops and plenty of good downhill courses. It’s a nice little winter playground. Check Brian Head out here.
Theatre – We at the Lodge can’t say enough about the Utah Shakespeare Festival. It’s a great way to relax and catch some culture. If you are a fan of The Bard, you can enjoy many award winning performances each year. A number of contemporary performances are also offered. Check out the Utah Shakespeare Festival here.
Shopping – Saint George has several middle-upscale strip malls, with more on the way. Go window-shopping at Red Cliffs Mall. And remember, Las Vegas is only a couple of hours away.
Art – Southern Utah is a haven for artists. There are galleries all across downtown Saint George and Cedar City. The Saint George Art Museum has a nice collection. If you have a hand for art, take an art tour in the national parks. It’s a great way to get out and enjoy nature, without the need to be physically active.
We at The Lodge at Red River Ranch want you have a great adventure here in Southern Utah. These activities can add to any vacation plans.
