St. George Community


Saint George, located in the Southwest corner of Utah, is being recognized nationally and internationally as a sanctuary for visitors, residents and business. In the summer of 2008 Saint George was acknowledged by Inc. Magazine as the 2nd best city in the United States for business. In June of 2008 U.S. News and World Report called Saint George “One of 10 Great Retirement Spots for Golf Nuts.” Where to Retire Magazine, which has routinely rated Saint George as one of the great places in the U.S. to retire, has now listed Saint George as one of eight “hot spots” for retirement home values. 

Sculpted red rock desert valleys holding cactus flowers and exotic looking plants are nestled below pine covered mountain peaks. The Saint George Area is surrounded by multiple state parks, nature preserves, and of course the towering monoliths and canyon walls of Zion National Park. Many other national parks, national monuments and breath taking vistas are a short drive away.
