The Full Story

We set up our Window Washing Company here for a reason!

St. George Utah Temple

This massive and towering structure, which takes up an entire city block, is a must-see in St. George.

The construction of the temple began in 1872 and was completed five years later. The temple is only open to followers of the Mormon church, although there is a visitor center on site that is open to the general public.

The temple's pristine white look makes it easy to spot from anywhere in town. The building is huge, with more than 110,000 square feet of interior space and a height of 175 feet.

Town Square Park

If you're travelling with young children and want to spend a day doing something enjoyable and free, Town Square Park is the place to go.

If your child gets tired of the water, they can ride an antique carousel for a modest price. The Tabernacle, one of St. George's most historically significant and beautifully maintained buildings, is encircled by the park.

Red Hills Desert Gardens

The Red Hills Desert Landscape is a stunning garden that showcases the vegetation of the surrounding area. The garden contains over 5,000 plants, some of which are so brilliantly colored that they nearly seem to sparkle against the red dirt and rocks.

Plant imageries are printed on metal poles that run the length of a boardwalk that winds through the garden and across a slow-moving creek that contains endangered native fish species.

You can easily combine a visit here with a stop at Pioneer Park if you have the time.
