St George Utah
St. George is southern Utah’s largest city. It occupies a stretch of green beneath red rock cliffs in Utah’s desert southwest. Its pleasant winter weather attracts a large number of “snowbirds” from northern Utah, who stay for extended periods in the winter while their neighbors back home get soaked. St. George (Utah’s Dixie) is known for the area where the summer sun spends the winter.
St. George has historical buildings, lots of golf courses and plenty of shopping. Nearby is Snow Canyon State Park (10 miles northwest) and the pleasant alpine wilderness of the Pine Valley Mountains (38 miles north). St. George also works as a base from which to visit Zion National Park (40 miles northeast). Recreational activities of a different sort are also available at the casinos in Mesquite, Nevada (30 miles southwest). St. George has a wide selection of lodging and dining options.
