I have lived in Washington County for 15 years, I have had many different work experiences and have learned many things. They pay is getting better for the working class, which is good. It is a bit expensive to live here but the area is absolutely breath taking. I have met so many wonderful people here, just simply amazing. So many lasting friendships!

I have raised my children here, it has been a wonderful place for them to grow and experience different things. The schools were great, helping them learn skills before they graduated. Now my grandchildren will have the same opportunity to grow up here also. Overall it is a great place!

Washington county is a great place to raise a family, however housing has skyrocketed with low paying jobs. The religion here is mostly mormon, so some individuals may feel left out if they are not the same religion. However, is it safe here and the weather is wonderful.
Washington County is a place to raise a family, Southern Utah is absolutely gorgeous YEAR ROUND. We are surrounded by State Parks, including Zion National Park and Brian Head Resort.

Beautiful City, Beautiful State
