If you’re traveling by car, this is the perfect place to stop for a bathroom break, food, and gas. Its got an In-n-Out! yum! Have to stop and get some! It totally makes that weird drive through that weird, winding pass through the tip of Arizona worth the risk.over 3 years ago

Okay, I actually have extended family here but we only stopped by for lunch on our way home from a Boise business trip. They gave us a little driving tour.
Don’t get me wrong, the mountains are beautiful and the people seem nice. Perhaps the hype from my in-laws made me have higher expectations than I should’ve…
It’s bloody hot there, with not much entertainment-wise. Basically a small town becoming a city at this point.
The buildings in the old part of “downtown” are very quaint and charming…and then you hit this massive, White Temple of Doom. Just kidding – it’s very impressive. It is literally white though, almost blindingly so.
Red Mountain Spa is here, surrounded by (surprise) red rock. Frankly, I got bored of the red rock. A quick drive-by and you say, “ooh how purty,” but it’s not that great when that’s all the scenery you have to look at.
It’s very close to Zion, so that’s pretty neat. Too bad we didn’t go to Zion…
Also, if they cut down on how many GOLFCOURSESTHEREARE, maybe the influx of population wouldn’t be so bad right now. =D
(Oh, and we ate at The Pizza Factory which has awesome breadsticks that they bake twirled around a stick. Yum! Not the stick, but the bread.)over 5 years ago
I was raised in St. George and graduated from Pine View High School and Dixie State High Sch- …I mean Dixie State College. I would gladly live there again. It is true what they say about the traffic, road construction, real estate prices, and small-town crime-rate increases all due to outsiders coming into the town. However, if you want to experience a clear night sky, majestic red-rock canyons, endless nature to hike and explore, a good game of golf, or a chance to meet some happy, home-grown southern-utahns, it is a great place to visit. I would not recommend living there if you do not like the desert climate, it does get insanely hot. Also, If the only fun you know is 40 proof, I would agree that St. George is not the best place – but Vegas is only 1.5 or 2 hours down the road. Mesquite is even closer (30 min.), with just as much vice.over 6 years ago
