3 Diamonds with AAA

AAA Travel in St. George, Utah

 

Hey!  We had our AAA Club inspection yesterday and are approved as a 3 Diamond property!   What makes this so awesome?  Over the past three years the AAA has become much more strict and detailed in their inspections, making the possibility to earn a 3 diamond rating all the more difficult.  This means we have the endorsement from their great company about our great company.  I love this property!

For those who are AAA Travel members, there is a AAA Travel office located just off the Washington City exit 10.  (844 W Telegraphs, Suite #4, Washington, Utah)  It is in the same complex as In and Out Burger.  Their phone number is: 435-656-3990.

And remember, all AAA Travel members receive a 10% discount off the regular daily rate!

Moutain Meadow Massacre

 

Mountain Meadow Memorial

This is one of the greatest tragedies to occur in the Southern Utah area.  The Mountain Meadows Massacre was the killing of roughly 120 emigrants who were passing through Southern Utah in September 1857. The massacre occurred on September 11, 1857. The emigrants–men, women, and children–were traveling from Arkansas to California, part of the Baker-Fancher wagon train. They were killed by a group of local militia with the help of some of the area Indians.

Author Juanita Brooks, who studies and wrote the first book about the incident has concluded:

“The complete –the absolute — truth of the affair can probably never be evaluated by any human being; attempts to understand the forces which culminated in it and those which were set into motion by it are all very inadequate at best.

The memorial site is located approximately 30 miles north of St. George on highway 18.  The monument above has been erected overlooking the site.
