Vacation Ideas for Families Seeking the Time of Their Lives in Utah
Utah | Life Elevated
Utah seems to have a leg up on most other states in the US. What I mean by that is the fact that there is just so much stuff to do in Utah. With a family myself, I have come to appreciate how much the Beehive State offers families, whether it be adventure or relaxation. If you are one of the many searching for Utah family vacation ideas, I have a LOT to show you.
For example, St. George, Utah is said by many to be one of the most beautiful places in the country if not on earth. I was talking with someone the other day who recently visited Zion National Park. This guy has been everywhere; France, Germany, New Zealand, Hawaii. He’s planning a trip to Asia this summer. Though he has traveled the world and back, he still argues that Zion National Park is the most amazing place he’s ever been. “It’s like I stepped onto Mars or something. I have never seen anything like it in my entire life. It’s by far my favorite place on planet earth.”
Did Someone Say Golf?
Since we’re already talking about St. George, let’s keep going. If you have a golf-nut in your family like I do, St. George takes the cake. Just check out this list of golf courses:
- Sunbrook Golf Club (27 Holes/Par 72/6800 Yards)
- Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club
- Coral Canyon Golf Course (18 Holes/Par 72/7029 Yards)

Bring Your Hiking Boots and a Lot of Sunscreen
Is that enough? I could probably keep going. If you’re not a golfer, no problem. Feast your eyes upon national and state park heaven. Like I mentioned before, Zion National Park is a favorite, but it goes beyond that. Check these out.

- Capitol Reef National Park
- Cedar Breaks National Monument

Art, Art, and More Art
It’s amazing how people even own houses out here rather than just camping out 24/7. Let’s say you want to experience something other than the outdoors all day. If you’re a performing arts fan, may I suggest the Tuacahn complex, an amphitheatre on the edge of scenic Snow Canyon.
There’s also Coyote Gulch Art Village. This place is SO cool! With art galleries, studios, theatre, an art festival, a great restaurant, a gift shop, and a coffee shop, you could literally spend days there.
Just In Case You Want a Comfy Bed
With years of traveling and staying in hotels, I know what I’m talking about when I say that the hotel scene is out of the question when you stay in St. George. Las Palmas Resort Condos allows you to escape the crowds and enjoy St. George the way you were meant to enjoy it. These luxurious and family-friendly condos offer you a breath of fresh air from your busy schedule back at home.
The resort offers pools, hot tubs, playgrounds, and basketball and volleyball courts coupled with the amazing scenic views surrounding the resort, and not to mention the condos themselves. If that doesn’t scream “FAMILY FUN,” I don’t know what does. Complete your St. George experience with a one-of-a-kind vacation resort.
Looking for Utah family vacation ideas has never been easier thanks to the city of St. George.
