I remember the first time I went to the St. George Parade of Homes. I will never forget the amazing home I walked through in Leeds, Utah. I remember marveling at the incredible moldings and the very unique southwest style. The entire backside of the house was glass and had one of the most incredible unobstructed views of the red mountain in the distance. We just happened to be there as the sun was going down so we were able to get just a small glimpse of the majestic sunset against the red rock. I told my wife, "Honey, I'm sorry, but that might be the most beautiful sight I've ever seen - we are coming here every here." She agreed. We have been coming ever since.
What we loved about our experience at St. George Parade of Homes
The homes are so unique to the St. George style and desert climate and architecture. Our favorite house had a huge 30 foot ceiling with exposed beams, almost desert rustic, and had a pool with a rock cave. But, the coolest part was that the family room and the back patio were only separated by a floor to ceiling window that could be pushed aside and tucked away like a sliding door. This made it so the entire interior now became part of the exterior poolside patio.
We loved it and ended up spending a week off and on touring homes. Many of the homes were spread across the whole region so some homes took 30-40 minutes to get to. But, that's also what made it fun because you could enjoy the scenic desert red rock mountains along the way. It's definitely not a time to rush through it like you may in other areas. You take your sweet time at St. George Parade of Homes. Take a pad of paper and your camera to document new home decor and gadgetry ideas. Some homes are fully equipped smart homes. We loved it and highly recommend laying out which homes to see along the map route. Be sue to study what homes you want to see and plan your route to maximize your time and to avoid the big crowds. We sat down on the sofas and took 30 minutes or so to take in the energy of the homes - let them talk to us. It made for a beautiful, creatively-inspiring moment. If you plan to build a home or remodel, it is here where you let your mind run with ideas and ensure you don't forget them.
