St. George, Utah: One of the Best Places to Live in the US


I’ve seen the movie “The High School Musical 2” when I was a kid and what I remember the most was the gorgeous setting of the movie. Later on in life, I learned that some of the scenes from the movie were shot in St. George, Utah in United States of America.

St. George is a city in Utah and is located 300 miles south-southwest of its famous neighbor, Salt Lake City. The city is one of the top destinations in the US because of its significantly warmer on the average temperature as compared to other cities in the state. The climate is hot during summer and relatively mild cold in the winter which is almost the same to nearby Las Vegas which is 118 miles away from St. George City.

St. George is emerging to be one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States and there has been a boost in top commercial properties for sale in St George. This can be attributed to its year-round outdoor recreation activities and adventures in the nearby Snow Canyon State Park, Zion National Park, and The Grand Canyon. It is also the home of St. George Marathon and several golf courses.

In 2020, the city’s population was estimated at 95,342 and the local income mainly comes from tourism and manufacturing. The city has also been considered as one of the most secured places to live and in 2012, it ranked #63 in the “Best Place to Live in the United States” by CNN’s Money Magazine. Crime rate here is much lower than the national average and St George Commercial Real Estate Agents are promoting the city as a friendly community. The relatively low cost of living is also attracting people to stay and live here because it is also considered as one of the cheapest places to live in the United States.
