St. George is a lovely, modern city, and well positioned in Southern Utah near the Arizona border. Its latitude and elevation allow for a favorable climate, with relatively warm winters compared to the rest of Utah.
Many people use St. George as a base or a starting point for trips to nearby parks, most
notably Zion National Park, less than an hour away. The city is also within easy striking
distance of some fabulous mountain biking trails, particularly at nearby Hurricane.
St. George is also one of the fastest growing urban municipalities in the United States
with an average of 55.8 percent growth over the last 20 years. Even though St. George is
considered historically as a retirement community, it’s median age is 38 years and
dropping. As local universities and a diverse tech sector grows, so does the number of
young people moving to the city. St. George’s housing market is likewise extremely
strong with home values increasing by 33 percent over the last year, and rental properties
at 98 percent occupancy.
