St. George (Greater Zion)
There’s a reason every Utahn ends up in St George. Or, lots of reasons, really.
Brigham Young sent Latter-day Saint settlers down south to grow crops in the big sun. Your uncle and aunt retired there for the premium warm-weather golfing. Your outdoorsy friends love Zion National Park and the surrounding state parks’ year-round adventures. Your city-slicker friends just want to be warm and comfortable and have a million restaurant options. Did we mention the moderate winters? Located in the southwest corner of Utah, just 90 minutes from Las Vegas, in St. George you will experience a much warmer climate than our friends that have the greatest snow on earth up north!
