Between the view, the affordability, and the weather, it’s hard to pick just one reason to move to St. George. We love it here and we think you’ll love it too! Here’s everything you need to know about relocating to St. George Utah.
St. George is on the border of Arizona sitting just south of the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area and Snow Canyon State Park. Because of this, we have beautiful views and a very pleasant outdoors. We are less than 2 hours to Las Vegas, about 6 hours to Phoenix, and 4 hours to Salt Lake City.
St. George’s average commute time is just 16 minutes. Because of this, most people don’t carpool. Only 15% of residents carpool to work and 6% work from home. BUT, ST. George is not very walkable as we only have a walk score of 29, so a care is a good mode of transportation.
Our bus service offers just 6 routes, which is usually sufficient enough for most commuters in St. George. The SunTran Interactive Map can help with transit routes.
