Kanab and St. George are at the heart of the Grand Circle, very close to some of the most dazzling national parks in the country, Zion and Bryce Canyon, and within easy reach of the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Glen Canyon.

Nearby is Kanab’s Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, home to the National Geographic television series “DogTown,” where visitors can take a tour of the nation’s largest sanctuary for companion animals.
