I really love where we live. St. George, UT was recently voted the best city in Utah. I completely understand why. I love the red rocks, the blue sky, and the simple easy going way of life here. This area is currently growing like crazy! It seems like new developments are starting up every week. When I was a kid living in Orange County, California, my family would travel to St. George every year to spend Spring Break here. We would ride dirt bikes, go to the lake, and just enjoy the heat. If I could do it all over again I would come to St. George, UT in a heart beat. I have no regrets about choosing to attend college here in Southern Utah and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful experience.

I really love Washington City. I may be biased, because I grew up here, but it's really one of the best little towns you could ever live in. You're just out of the city enough to feel like you're still in with the St. George vibe, but you don't have to be in the thick of St. George's busy streets all the time. Not only that, but those few miles from downtown out you just that much closer to enjoying some of the world class nature that resides here in Washington County.
I love where I live! I would definitely consider retiring here. Beautiful scenery with different colored mountains all around including red. Lots of recreational opportunities outdoors. It's a growing area. There's new stores and home building all around. It's a hot spot for retirement and fun for the whole family year round.
