So the First time we took the kids(7m-9yrs) to St. George was in February and I had no clue where to go or what to do, so naturally, I hopped on The Salt Project to look at Harmonys post about The Crack.
We went. We loved it. We had to go back.
So 3 months later, we found ourselves back in St. George, and ready to do some major exploring.
Last time we went to The Crack mid day on a weekend.
It was pretty busy, you could only go up the crack because there were people in front and behind you, and lets not talk about the guy behind me that got stuck and had a panic attack!
Don't worry, he made it out alive.
This time we went in the morning during the week.
There wasn't anyone there so the kids(7-9yrs) went up and down the crack several times and had time to explore the cave in the middle. Totally needs to be added to everyone's bucket list.
Don't forget to check out the Dixie Rock mural too!
On the west side of Pioneer Park
The Crack: Turn at the Pioneer Park sign and drive north. Follow the road around. You can park right in front of The Crack
Dixie Rock: Drive past Dixie Rock, there is a parking lot right behind it closer to the bridge and the rock
Pack a lunch
Weekdays are less crowded
Don't forget the sunscreen

Not wheelchair and Stroller friendly, but there are bike paths that pass through Pioneer Park
