I was shopping in Ancestor Square in downtown St. George and I came across the St. George Art Museum.  I wondered if there would be galleries and art museums when I moved here from the Salt Lake City area and I have found a wealth of museums and galleries throughout St. George, Washington and Hurricane, Utah. 

The mission of the St. George Art Museum is “to education all visitors through quality exhibitions from all periods, cultures, and media, as well as to collect, conserve, inventory, exhibit and interpret art and artifacts from Utah and the West”.

The St. George Art Museum is right across from the Main Street Post Office in historic downtown St. George.  The museum was formerly used as a sugar beet seed storage facility.  Now it is a…

After eating a delicious breakfast at the Main Street Diner, I came across an interesting antique/vintage shop in Hurricane, Utah.  It is called the Gypsy Emporium Antique Mall.  It is located at 25 East State Street in Hurricane.  This is one of the largest antique stores in all of Southern Utah.  

There is really no way to classify this shop.  It is full of antiques, souvenirs, mementos, crafts, vintage clothing and jewelry, consignment items and yet they also have new, locally made items too.  The building is huge and also has an upstairs packed with items.

I don’t really love shopping for antiques, but I enjoyed shopping at the Gypsy Emporium.  I found a few unique items I bought as gifts.  My daughter was with me and it was fun to explain…

After driving to the Toquerville Falls this week, our family wanted to find a place to enjoy breakfast.  I looked up breakfast locations near the road to the Toquerville Falls and came across a wonderful surprise in La Verkin, Utah.  Several people have posted reviews about the River Rock Roasting Company and so we chose to have breakfast here.   We love the place!

The River Rock Roasting Company sits on the edge of a canyon overlooking the Virgin River.  You can sit inside the café or you can sit outside on upper deck or lower seating area and enjoy the views.  River Rock is located at 394 South Main Street in La Verkin, Utah.  La Verkin is approximately 20 miles from St. George.  You can reach La Verkin by driving south from Toquerville or…

What a wonderful surprise!  My parents invited me to breakfast and surprised me by driving to Hurricane, Utah. Hurricane is about 19 miles from St. George.  There we came upon an eclectic, fun café located at 138 South Main Street.  The outside is fun and inviting.  The inside is colorful and has art from artists in the area displayed on the walls.  There is a great patio area too.  There are fun quotes on the walls.  There is a welcoming feeling when you walk in the door. 

The atmosphere is great, but the food is fabulous.  We were there for breakfast and the menu was expansive with all the right breakfast foods.  Their pancakes, French toast, eggs, breakfast potatoes, oatmeal and fruit were delicious.  Their bacon is the best bacon I have ever…

On the last Thursday of each month, Hurricane City is hosting a Summer Concerts series in Pioneer Park.  Pioneer Park is located at 200 North Main Street in Hurricane, Utah.  Hurricane is about 20 miles east of St. George.  Follow I-15 North and State Highway 9 East to State Street and North Main Street in Hurricane. 

Hurricane is a wonderful city in Washington County.   According to the United States Census Bureau, Hurricane has a population of approximately 16,159 people and has an area of approximately 32 square miles.  Make sure you pronounce the city as “Hur-a-kin” or you will probably hear about it from local residents.

The Summer Concert in the Park series started in April and goes through the end of August, but there are still three…

Trail Tuesday took me to Hurricane, Utah this week. I explored the hike: Three Falls, Gould’s Wash, with access from downtown Hurricane. There are three waterfalls in Gould’s Wash.  I hiked to the lower waterfall which was very easy and approximately 1.5 miles long. There was no water present, but the hike to the lower fall was a surprisingly beautiful hike. The hike follows a small, dry riverbed up into a canyon that has some really interesting structures in it. The canyon walls are pocketed with caves and holes. The lower waterfall runs over smooth rock and is about 25 feet tall. You can see the middle fall from the lower fall, but you can’t see the upper waterfall. 

If you want to climb to the middle and upper waterfalls the hike becomes…
