LITTLE BLACK MOUNTAIN PETROGLYPH SITE – Technically in Arizona (just over the Utah border), this site contains some of the best-preserved petroglyphs in southern Utah. Accessible by a short nature trail. The dirt road in can be a bit bumpy. Free entry.
THE ST. GEORGE TEMPLE VISITORS’ CENTER – Visit one of the original temples for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) who first settled this area in the 1860’s.
