Saint George is a very family-friendly neighborhood. It's not too small and yet it's not so big that you get lost. The university here is nationally accredited and it's about a quarter of the cost of all major universities in the state of Utah. We are located centrally between 5 national parks so there's hiking, skiing, fishing, playing around, and camping. You get the best of all the seasons where you can leave to visit snow but you don't have to live in it . It does get really warm in the summers only a 110 but it is so worth it to enjoy the outdoors here. The food and the gas are all affordable everybody you meet is really nice and there's always something to do that doesn't cost you a lot. Saint George is an up-and-coming town it is growing every year. If you're looking for a laid-back casual place to make your life this is a good place for it to be. Life is good here!

I have lived in the area for about three years now. The thing I love most about this city is the Red Rock everywhere. Its landmark beauty is the reason I stay. Since living here my mind space has excelled in many ways. I live a healthier, and happy life. I love the warm weather it has to offer, meaning NO snow.
The only thing I would change about St. George is how many people need to move here! Experience it all for themselves. Or just come visit and see what the land has to offer.
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!
