When it comes to choosing where to stay in Southern Utah, location is everything. While staying at Water Canyon might mean a bit of a further drive from the airport on Friday, it’s well worth the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist cities to the north.

What time you arrive at Water Canyon will determine how you spend your Friday. If you get to the resort early in the day, consider taking a day trip to one of the area’s many national and state parks (more ideas for day trips are listed below!). But if you’re arriving in the afternoon or evening, take some time to get settled into your modern cabin. All check-ins are contactless, so you can arrive on your schedule and head straight to your private studio. 

After taking in the stunning views, head into Hildale for a delicious dinner. Pick up dinner at Berry Knoll Pizza, and head next door for a drink at the Edge of the World Brewery. Or, take your dinner back to your cabin to enjoy on your private patio. Start a fire in the firepit, pop open a bottle of wine, roast some marshmallows, and take in the incredible views of the night sky. Then head to bed for a good night’s rest before a day of fun!


There’s no shortage of ways to spend your full day at Water Canyon. Our favorite option is to make a reservation at our very own St George Utah winery.

Water Canyon Winery is a family-owned and operated winery. We specialize in producing ‘natural wines,’ made from grapes grown in our very own vineyard. The winery and vineyard are located just a short distance from Water Canyon Resort

You can schedule a tour of our vineyard, as well as a private wine tasting. Customize your own wines while you enjoy a fresh charcuterie board. Don’t forget to pick up a few bottles to take home to remember this special weekend, or to enjoy back at your cabin.

If an afternoon of wine tasting isn’t for you, there are plenty of amazing day trips you can enjoy from our resort. Zion National Park and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon are two popular options. There are also several Utah state parks just a short drive away, too. If you and your spouse are looking for something a little more adventurous, a canyoneering adventure in Water Canyon might be just the thing.

No matter what you choose, you’re certain to make some incredible memories you and your loved one will treasure for years to come.


If you’re extending your romantic getaway at one of the best summer resorts Utah has to offer, spend your Sunday enjoying one of the amazing day trips that you missed the day before. 

But if today is your last day at Water Canyon Resort, make the most of it. Make some coffee in the Keurig at your cabin’s kitchenette, then head outside to take in a beautiful sunrise in your private courtyard.

No matter which direction you’re headed to get home, you’ll enjoy some incredible views. If you have the time, make the drive a part of your trip, with stops at parks and overlooks along the way.
