St George Tour Guide

Sorry for the late post today, but we just got back from a fun weekend in St. George, Utah and it's always hard getting back to reality to tackle a long to-do list.  We love going to St. George because my parents have a second home there and it's a perfect meeting spot for us with it being about half-way in between LA and Salt Lake City.  We went this last weekend because I did the Sand Hollow Triathlon with my good friend, Jasmine and my sister Brittney and her husband.  This is my second time doing this race and it's really a fun one.  I didn't train as much as I would have liked because life got crazy busy and I decided to do it last minute, but I still felt good about it and I survived;)  It's always so fun being in a race environment where everyone is really into it and your adrenaline kicks in.  We've been there for lots of race events such as the St. George marathon, tour de St. George bike race, kokopelli triathlon, and the iron man.  Because we frequent St. George at least a couple times a year, if only just driving through - I wanted to share some of our favorite places to eat and fun things to do there, plus it's such a gorgeous place!  Our time there is always filled with swimming, hot tubbing, tennis matches, golfing, ping-pong, roasting s'mores over the fire pit, playing games, biking, and just being with family.
