12 Places In Southern Utah For History Nerds
I consider myself a big time history nerd.
No, I don't mean a nerd in the sense that I always need an inhaler, I'm awkward with girls and I have glasses. Okay. Okay, maybe that really is true, but my point is I'm a really, really, really, really big fan of history.
If I am driving down the highway and I see a brown sign and tells me there's a historical marker nearby, I have to go to that spot and read it. Does my family appreciate this? Absolutely not. I would venture to say they hate it.
But I love the idea of going to a place, and I can usually imagine whatever historical event happening there right before my eyes.
Luckily I live in St. George, Utah, which is home to many historical sites and museums that tickle me to no end.
And since I'm also somewhat of a cheapskate, the fact that most of these places are completely free is a definite plus.
So if you're a History Nerd like me, and you're looking for a place to geek out and step into the past, here are a few (but not all) of the historical places of interest in Southern Utah that I suggest checking out when you have a free afternoon.
