Most visitors head to St. George for rest and relaxation at the spas, golf courses, and area parks, but there's also a good deal of history in these parts, not to mention pre-history: The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm, 2180 E. Riverside Dr. (tel. 435/574-3466; www.dinotrax.com), showcases 2,000 fossilized tracks left by dinosaurs of all kinds when the area sat on the edge of a vast lake. It's open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm; admission is $6 adults, $3 kids, and those 3 and under are free.

Discovering Mormon History In & Around St. George

Because the LDS Church was the primary driving force in the settlement of St. George, it should come as no surprise that most of the sightseeing in town is church-related. At the town's historic buildings, staffed by knowledgeable church members, you'll learn about the church as well as the specific sites; expect a little sales pitch on the benefits of Christianity in general and the Mormon faith in particular.
