Scenic St. George, Utah and the Dixie Center will host the Feast of Tabernacles 2020. This area of southwestern Utah is called Greater Zion. Greater Zion offers more than 2,400 square miles of adventure and inspiration. Zion National Park, the fourth most visited National Park in the United States, is the premier attraction. The park is distinguished by Zion Canyon’s steep, red cliffs accented with massive sandstone cliffs of cream and pink that soar into a brilliant blue sky. Zion Canyon Scenic Drive cuts through its main section, leading to forest trails along the Virgin River. The river flows to the Emerald Pools, which have waterfalls and a hanging garden. Also, along the river, partly through deep chasms, is The Narrows, a popular wading hike.
This family friendly community provides a picturesque setting with snow-capped mountain peaks, red rock canyons and red sand mountains. Besides Zion National Park there are three other state parks and a multitude of year-round recreational lands set the stage for a burgeoning mountain biking scene, some of the best off-highway vehicle riding in the country, scenic and challenging play at 12 top-rated golf courses, world-class cultural performances at Tuacahn Center for the Arts. The cover photo above was taken at Snow Valley State Park, which is located just a few miles north of St. George.
