    Farmstead

    Bakery
    Open Details
    Farmstead is a world-class bakery by a team that previously worked at Las Vegas restaurants on the Strip. The European-inspired patisserie serves croissants, fruit tarts, cinnamon rolls and other baked goods with a gourmet touch. The doughnuts are colorfully decorated and taste even better than they look. Try a pizza, salad, or The George (a melted breakfast sandwich) if you prefer something more savory.
    Lines get long, especially on weekends. You can always place an order in advance for pickup. Farmstead is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

Children will enjoy the vintage carousel, splash pads and waterfalls among the rock formations. The entire park is outfitted with free Wi-Fi. Bring a blanket, stretch out on the grass and enjoy the sunshine.

    While walking back to the hotel, you'll come across Thomas Judd's Store, the oldest operating business in St. George. Old Judd's (as it's also known) dates back to 1911, when it opened as a general store – and the exterior doesn't look much different today.
    The business is now a candy shop that specializes in nostalgia. Pick up a few treats to enjoy in the car later. The store also sells ice cream and soda. A vintage gas pump sits out front, but isn't in operation.

    Circle back from Kayenta to St. Geroge with a drive through Santa Clara, a quiet residential community with timeless charm. Pull over at the Jacob Hamblin Home, where the architecture and furnishings are preserved and restored to resemble life in the 1860s.
    The free tour lasts about 30 minutes. Visitors are guided from room to room while learning about the life of Hamblin, a diplomat who fostered Mormon relations with local Native American tribes.
    The home, effectively operating as a museum, is welcoming of guests who stop by, but it's always a good idea to call ahead to confirm a tour.

    Farmers Market
    Open Details
    Paying a visit to Frei's Fruit Market is a local tradition, dating back to 1956 when the business was a modest roadside stand. Since then, it's grown to a larger space but continues to sell fresh seasonal produce grown on the market's own Utah farm. Stop by, say hello and pick up some fruits and vegetables to take back to Las Vegas. A refrigerated section sells house-made jams and salsas.

    Yardley's Steakburgers

    Steakhouse
    Open Details
    At first glance, Yardley's Steakburgers looks like just another fast-food counter inside a travel stop, but it actually has some of the best burgers you'll ever try. The business uses its own grass-fed, grass-finished beef from a local cattle ranch dating back to 1856.
    The menu is simple, letting the ingredients do the talking. Order a single, double or triple with regular fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings or cheese curds on the side. Yardley's is also known for its frozen custard creations. Enjoy an order in the dining room or to-go if you'd rather eat in the car while driving back to Las Vegas.
