Climate & Geography

Located in Southern Utah in the tri-state junction of Utah, Arizona, and Nevada, St. George has a hot and dry desert climate. The air is significantly hotter in summer than the rest of Arizona because it is part of the Mojave Desert. Residents can expect little rain and 300 days of sun a year, as well as cool winters with some snowfall and freezing temperatures.

Recreation, Culture & Entertainment

Residents have plentiful access to outdoor recreation. The Red Cliffs National Conservation Area and the Pine Valley Mountains are to the north, and the Beaver Dam Mountains are to the west. Zion National Park is just 30 miles away, as well. All of these offer hiking, biking, and camping. Pioneer Park is another great way to see the red cliffs and is located close to downtown.

St. George is considered the golf capital of Utah with twelve easily accessible golf courses that are mostly open year round. Residents can visit either the downtown area or Ancestor Square, which both have historic buildings, restaurants, antique shops, and boutiques.
