CONTRIBUTED CONTENT – Imagine this: Children follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs and explore a ghost town without a smartphone in sight. Or parents relax by the pool after an exhilarating hike on a hot summer day. Turns out the perfect family getaway exists – and you’ll find it at Red Mountain Resort this summer.
After more than 20 years of inspiring adventures in southern Utah, Red mountain station offers outdoor and wellness activities for families until Labor Day.
Blended naturally into a landscape of bright red cliffs and rock canyons just outside of St. George, the resort has everything families need to relax, rejuvenate and experience an unforgettable summer vacation. Executive Director Tracey Welsh said families will find activities and amenities for all interests. Maybe dad and the kids will want to lace up their boots and hit the track while mum enjoys a relaxing massage at the full-service Sagestone Spa & Salon. It’s easy to do both at Red Mountain Resort.
This summer, Stay & Play rates for families are available in one- and two-bedroom luxury villas as well as the resort’s Desert Oasis rooms, which are just steps from the restaurant and spa. Book a getaway and choose from many child-friendly activities to add and make your vacation memorable for everyone.
Young explorers can learn about the geological and human history of southwest Utah on half-day tours that are both fun and educational. Hikers of all ages and skill levels will enjoy discovering the desert on a personalized adventure guided by the resort’s experienced and knowledgeable animators. For more active families looking for a challenge, parents and kids can step out of their comfort zone with rock climbing and abseiling tours.
“Our team really knows the area,” said Welsh. “Our guides have come so many miles here.”
Red Mountain Resort also offers private wellness experiences designed to enrich bonds and inspire quality, healthy moments between families.
Find balance together with kid-friendly yoga. Encourage toddlers to participate in fitness classes with bouncing and percussion. Bond through a family oracle reading, a drum circle, or learning the ancient art of stone and crystal medicine. Families can also enjoy free use of bicycles, as well as s’mores by the fire at the guest lodge.
Families from all over the country are discovering the Grand Sion region as an adventure destination. Welsh said the resort’s proximity to parks and other unique attractions makes it a natural starting point for the ultimate summer getaway.
While staying at Red Mountain Resort, families can easily organize a day trip to Zion National Park or Bryce Canyon. Snow Canyon State Park, offering stunning views and miles of trails, is within walking distance, and with shows six nights a week, world-class family entertainment at the Tuacahn Amphitheater is a short drive away.
There’s also plenty to do on the resort’s scenic 55-acre property, including walking the Inspiration Maze and Trail, shopping at Red Mountain Outfitters and the Spa Shop, or just swinging in a hammock. Dine under the stars on the terrace of the Canyon Breeze Restaurant, offering Southwestern cuisine with a distinctly health-centric approach.
“Once families get to their destination, getting back in the car is usually something they want to avoid as much as possible,” Welsh said. “It’s really important to be able to hike and bike here and be able to use our spa, restaurant, pools and wellness facilities in one place.”
Recognizing that many families are just starting to feel confident about traveling again, Welsh said the Red Mountain Resort is the perfect place for a well-deserved getaway. The sprawling desert setting offers plenty of space to explore and create unforgettable memories.
