St George Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Utah
Nestled in a picturesque valley surrounded by towering red, sandstone cliffs, the City of St. George is the county seat of Washington County and is one of the fastest growing cities in a region known as "Utah's Dixie." Many people move to St. George for the semi-tropical climate and 300 plus days of sunshine a year; many for the abundance and variety of affordable housing; and more still for the scenic beauty, family atmosphere, and outstanding educational opportunities.
Located in the far southwest corner of Utah, just six miles from the Arizona state line on I-15, St. George is home to more than 90,000 residents. Due to its proximity to such scenic wonders as Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Lake Powell and Lake Mead, St. George has become a tourist mecca as well as a residential haven for retirees and young working families.
The Washington County School District serves more than 26,000 students at 24 elementary schools (including Washington Online School), 5 middle schools, 6 intermediate schools and 7 high schools. St. George is also home to Dixie State College.
Recently, several national publications, such as Rand McNalley and Money magazine, rated the St. George/Washington County areas as one of the best communities in the country in which to retire. As a result, there is a fairly large amount of new construction in the area, not merely for retirees but for young working families and middle-aged professionals as well. Real estate options consist of single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses, gated communities and land lots for custom building.
