St. George, Utah is a spectacular setting for the 2013 NHPA World Tournament. The city is nestled in the heart of some of the most beautiful country you will ever experience - just a 90-minute drive from the bright lights of Las Vegas, Nevada – but the atmosphere here is worlds apart.

Five national parks are within easy driving distance including Zion National Park, which is a scenic 40-minute drive from downtown St. George. Zion was recently honored by TripAdvisor as the nation’s, best National Park. Within 20 minutes of the city are four beautiful State Parks, and just a few hours away are the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Lake Powell.

St. George is a peacefully designed community with more than 50 miles of paved walking trails, 12 challenging golf courses, and a wide variety of modern hotels, restaurants, RV parks, shopping centers, museums, art galleries and destination spas. While you’re here, don’t miss the Broadway caliber shows at Tuacahn – a 2000 seat outdoor theater surrounded by 800-foot sandstone cliffs.
