St. George, Utah, is a beautiful city. The population is approximately 150,000 people and is in the southwest of Utah. The closest state parks to the city are Snow Canyon State Park and Zion National Park. Both parks are within easy driving distance. The scenic views and warm weather make St. George an ideal place.

If moving to Saint George, there are several things about the weather there that you should know. Summers are extremely hot, with temperatures normally soaring above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. There are very few trees to offer shady respite from the almost continual sunshine. Winters are usually more temperate.

St. George is extremely hot, since it’s in the middle of the desert. There are a lot of places to shop, but not many activities; there are many Mystery Escape rooms and hiking the Dixie Rock are two of the few.

St. George is known for its desert landscapes. The surrounding areas include dramatic red cliffs and beautiful canyons. The area is also know to be home to a large population of people who attend the LDS church. These people are also commonly called Mormons, although they have moved away from this in recent years.

St. George is in southern Utah and is the fastest growing city in the United States! Visitors and new transplants can expect great year-round weather to take advantage of hiking in summer at the various national parks such as Zion, Moab, and the Aches to skiing near Salt Lake City. With close proximity to Las Vegas, Nevada, there is always something to do.
