The leaves have finally fallen off the trees, hot chocolate and apple cider line the grocery store aisles, and the smell of a fresh cut pine tree fills the air. Christmas time has finally arrived to Utah’s Dixie! With family coming into town, what better way to spend the evenings than enjoying some of the amazing Christmas events and outings that St. George has to offer.
Here are some of our favorite Christmas activities to do while in Southern Utah!
Christmas Light Seeing
If there’s one thing St. George knows how to do, it’s Christmas lights! One of the most popular light shows in Southern Utah is Kuhn’s Castle! The Kuhn’s family was featured in, and won, ABC’s “The Greatest Christmas Light Fight in 2015.
Each year the Kuhn family transforms their house into a magical castle filled with all of your favorite characters from Disney’s “Phineas and Ferb”. Each year the family adds on another unique twist to their house. Be sure to stop by Kuhn’s Castle located at 445 W. Heritage Drive!
St. George LDS Temple
The Temple for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has always been a focal point for the community. Located just 4 blocks north of Temple View RV, the temple grounds are covered in a variety of lights and features at its front, a life sized Nativity representing the birth of Christ. The temple grounds are open to all people of all faiths and offers a great evening walk for the whole family.
Historic Downtown St. George
Enjoy an evening in the heart of St. George, as Main Street turns into a winter wonderland. The streets are lined with lights, and a special someone (Santa Claus) can be seen peeking over the roof of one of the buildings down town. Be sure to pick up some hot chocolate and a cupcake from 25 & Main for your walk.
These are just a few of our favorite Christmas traditions that Utah’s Dixie has to offer. Be sure to make the most of your time as you enjoy this holiday with your family and friends.
