St George Utah Attractions

St. George is located within the northern end of the Mojave Desert at 2,860 feet above sea level and has an average annual temperature of approximately 61°F. St. George’s climate is an attraction in its own right. It has become a green oasis in the desert, and the combination of the warm, dry winter climate and natural beauty of the setting draws both new residents and tourists to the area. With hot summers and mild winters, St. George is also known as a winter haven for what the 50,000 locals like to call “Snow Birds” (tourists who come to St. George to warm up, away from the snow). St. George is also home to the four-year Dixie State College. St. George offers excellent shopping, dining, entertainment, and other activities.

The Mormon pioneers were sent here in 1861 to grow cotton. It is named after George A. Smith, early pioneer leader.
