Really just a shopping center & some businesses and offices, could be a lot more. St George could do a lot more with it's historic downtown, especially as the gateway to the National Parks. George's is a good place to eat.

The Focus of Ancestor Square is Mormon history and family fun whether it be visiting the Children's museum, the park or the water fountain area. There is a multi level free parking garage and a few restaurants.

The Ancestor Square is nice to walk around. You will find for instance a very old jail that was used in the past. There are also a few restaurants around the square and easy accessible from the square.
