Travel Ideas

Historic Downtown

Greater Zion has many things to do for your visit. One of the best places to start is the historic downtown area. Downtown personifies the city as one full of history and culture. Here, there are art galleries, museums, historic homes and buildings, and plenty of shopping and food.

From May until October, visitors can check out the Downtown Farmer’s Market for some local fare, while boutique stores, local art studios, and a number of museums round out the experience downtown.

Whether or not visitors are looking for something specific downtown, a stroll through the sidewalks is sure to put a smile on their faces.

Little Black Mountain petroglyphs

The Little Black Mountain Petroglyph Site is located just south of the border between Utah and Arizona. A short and easy hike of about 1 mile around some of the massive sandstone rock formations at the site will weave visitors through a maze of stone, and everywhere in the area, there are stunning ancient petroglyphs on the boulders.

The history of the petroglyphs aside, Little Black Mountain offers a good opportunity for visitors to St. George to experience some of the gorgeous nature in the area without committing the time or effort to a larger park or longer camping or hiking trip.

Rosenbruch World Wildlife Museum

In the Rosenbruch World Wildlife Museum, animals of every continent are represented in lifelike dioramas, depicting them each in their natural habitats. Almost all of the animals were donated from the personal collection of Jimmie C.

Rosenbruch and his family, all avid hunters who sought trophies all over the world. The taxidermied animals they hunted are now on display for all to see.

Each diorama is narrated for guests via an electronic audio tour guide, who teaches visitors about the animals on display and their habitats and tells stories of Rosenbruch’s adventures.
