Top Reasons to Go

Go with the (lava) flow: As you hike along the lower trails of Snow Canyon State Park, look up to see ridges capped in lava from eruptions possibly as recent as 20,000 years ago.

Sit in a stagecoach: Check out the one restored stagecoach that visitors can hop aboard at Iron Mission State Park Museum.

Camp beneath the aspens: The 26 campgrounds in Dixie National Forest might seem like a lot, but it's still easy to lose yourself amid the forest's 2 million acres.

Pay your respects to the Bard: Watch the likes of Othello on a stage that replicates the Old Globe Theatre during the Utah Shakespearean Festival.

Walk where dinosaurs stepped: The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm would be developed real estate if a backhoe hadn't unearthed ancient footprints in 2000.
