5 Star Honeymoon on a Dime, St. George

For our Honeymoon series, we are highlighting the finer side of Utah, and why keeping your Honeymoon local is not only an affordable option, but an adventurous one. Now that you are a newly married couple, it is time to create memories and traditions of your own. If you grew up in the state, as I did, you have more than likely stepped foot into the lovely city of St. George. A mere four hour road trip from Salt Lake City, you will find yourself in a different world. With gorgeous views of red rock mountains, palm trees, Spanish inspired architecture, and the blazing sun; your stresses from home will literally melt away.
Spend your week in St. George at the Inn at Entrada. This small luxury resort is located in a gated golf community, offering panoramic views of Snow Canyon and the surrounding red rock mountains. 

Your charming one bedroom casita offers a cozy living area with romantic fireplace, contemporary artwork, king size bed, whirlpool tub, complementary Aveda Spa products, private garage, a private patio and a kitchenette; breakfast in bed anyone? 

Be sure to book Entrada's Tuacahn Package. Combining first class accommodations and broadway entertainment from Tuacahn's stunning outdoor amplitheater.
Before the show, spend a few hours winding down. Book a pampering couples massage at Entrada's exclusive spa.
What better way to connect as a couple then trying something new. If you have never golfed before, have fun learning together on Entrada's private golf course. If you are a city couple, go for a hike in the redrocks. Make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, stay on trails, and bring extra water. To top off this adventurous activity, pack a light picnic.

Spending your Honeymoon in St. George does not have to lack in romantic atmosphere. Reserve a dinner at Scaldoni's. Featuring the deluctable creations of Chef Johnny Devivo, Scaldoni's offers more than a delicious meal; each plate is served as a piece of art.

A few days in St. George, you may be feeling a tad warm. A great way to cool off is to visit one of the many great lakes in the surrounding areas. Each lake offers a unique experience. Sand Hollow provides you with sandy beaches that are perfect for sunbathing and gorgeous coves allow for a more private experience. Laying in the sand and listening to the light crashing of waves, you will feel like you have just been transported to an exotic beach. If you want to amp up your activity level at the lake, check out this fun company for boat and jet ski rentals.

  Want to grab something quick to eat, stop by Sand Hollow's state of the art clubhouse.
After a few days spent exploring the great outdoors, a fun day of shopping and site seeing may be in order.  For a fun peek into the local side of St. George, visit Ancestor Square. You will find locally owned shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
Not every day spent on your Honeymoon has to be filled with candle light and romantic music. Spend a day just being silly together. Who says now that you are a married couple you can't have fun racing go carts, playing arcade games, and attacking each other on the bumper boats at Fiesta Fun?

After spending such a fun filled weekend together, I am sure you never want your Honeymoon to end. On your drive back home, take the long way! Utah is full of beautiful canyons and the gorgeous Zion Canyon is on the way. Just slowing your pace and taking in the magnificent sites will leave you feeling overwhelmed with how beautiful your life is and how lucky you are to get to spend it with the one you love.

*Rates may vary on season, but this 5 Star Honeymoon can be enjoyed for just under $2,500.00.
