The greatest thing about St. George is that it is clean and well maintained. It is rare to go down the street and find trash laying in the gutters. That is one marketable difference I have noticed between it and other cities of it's size. It is also very beautiful and has lots of trails, parks and national parks all around the area. It is a great destination to live, with lots to do. The only bad thing is that it can get pretty hot during the summer. But, that also means rarely do we ever have to deal with snow in the winter!

Being a current resident of St. George I can honestly tell you that it has been a blast! Not a moment goes by that is disappointing. St. George is not to big but not to small either and is located in Southern Utah. Here there are a lot of amazing schools and communities. There are also many outdoor activities that one will never get bored. The weather is always warm and if you get a little overheated, you can go anywhere to find some nice gelato or ice cream. I love it here and highly recommend the visit or move.
I love the diversity in St. George! There are so many fun activities to do in town which can provide entertainment for people of all ages. I'd like to see more changes around town when it comes to living accommodations. apartments and bigger buildings. I can see St. George vastly improving in the next 10 years, this city will improve so vastly that we will have a metropolis in Utah able to compete with Salt Lake City.
