The luxurious Inn at Entrada was our home for just two days and one night here in St. George, Utah. We indulged in “boutique casitas” with first class amenities, a top rated golf course, and some of Utah’s most spectacular scenery. Yes, this is the heart of the red rock country, an ideal vacation destination for hiking, biking, golfing, spa-ing, and pampering. The 22,000 square foot clubhouse and the 13,000 square foot sports and fitness center are a good start. Plus this is the starting point for adventures to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, Grand Staircase Escalante, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Lake Powell, and the Grand Canyon.
The casitas are along the ninth fairway, with one, two and three bedroom suites. Each studio where we stayed have remote control fireplace and window shades, kitchenette and sitting areas, attached garages, and enough space for a basketball court. The golf clubhouse was among 300 around the United States considered for the setting of Disney’s TV movie, High School Musica
l. Our clubhouse was selected for its unique architecture and red rock backdrops. Best of all, we cannot see much of the area except for the stunning red rocks and sandstone that make this area famous. It is only a 15 minute drive back into the town of St. George.
Dinner last night was at Benja Thai, our favorite place here in St. George. We love their specialty sushi rolls, yellow curry and pad Thai noodles. We already hit Nielsen’s Frozen Custard for an afternoon delight. And it was also on last night’s agenda after dinner too. I had the coconut and cashew concrete. Sheri had their chocolate hot fudge sundae. Too bad we cannot go there for breakfast too!
Today, we will head up the road to Zion National Park. We will have breakfast at the eclectic but legendary Oscar’s Cafe, then drive through the heart of Zion and its red rock cliffs, waterfalls, and arches. It is a spectacular sight, and only about two hours from Las Vegas. Then after our commune with nature at its best, we drive back into the neon jungle known as Las Vegas.
