Nestled at the base of the majestic cliffs of Red Mountain lies the community of Ivins. No where in the United States can you find a more breath-taking scenic area. Located northwest of St. George, away from the busy I-15 corridor, you can enjoy the quiet beauty of the desert. Besides the red sandstone mountains you'll find white sandstone canyons and black lava flows adding the color and beauty.
Residents and visitors can take advantage of hiking or biking along the city's paved trails, which connect with other trails inside nearby Snow Canyon State Park, St. George and Santa Clara. The unique, desert community of Kayenta is located in the city of Ivins and many of the nearly 5,000 residents of Ivins are retirees and professionals who have fallen in love the towering red mountains.
Ivins is also home to the Red Mountain Resort, The Adventure Spa, a leading health and fitness center, and the Tuachan Amphitheater, a 2,000-seat amphitheater for open-air productions and is often called "The Broadway of the Desert." Adjacent to the amphitheater is Tuachan High School, a charter school specializing in curriculum for the performing arts. Kayenta's Xetava Gardens, Datura Art Gallery, Zia Pottery Studio as well as the Snow Canyon Clinic are, also, located in this scenic community.
New commercial developments with mixed uses and pedestrian oriented "Village" feel are in the planning stages to take advantage of Ivin's low-stress scenic surroundings.
