St. George is a town in the Dixie region of Utah. Long a sleepy agricultural town, it is acquiring increasing importance (and population, which doesn't necessarily please its old-time residents). It is quickly taking on a Palm Springs, CA type of atmosphere owing to its benign climate and peacefulness which attracts retirees, and proximity to spectacularly scenic country and resulting outdoor recreation opportunities as well as Mesquite, Nevada, and Las Vegas.
