Keep in-mind that 'ghetto' is a relative term. Having lived in Detroit & Redwood City California, I certainly don't see what I'd call a 'ghetto' in St George, but I have seen some areas of St George that start to fit the basic definition or the word, and can understand why people who have lived in this area most of their lives would call it a ghetto.


Funny thing is, two basic aspects of a 'ghetto' stereotype in other parts of the country -- house/family with lots of kids, and numerous vehicles parked around it -- here are looked at as positive culturally (the vehicles being Campers, ATVs & "toy-haulers").

We're retirees from California thinking of moving to the St. George/Washington County area after visiting Santa Clara last summer. Zion is amazing, the weather etc. It seems to have a friendly nice lifestyle here. I think the area is becoming just diverse enough that outsiders are becoming accepted. What areas are good for retirees? We're looking for a place with scenery and room for fruit trees, garden and a pool/hot tub. Thanks. Great forum.

Yes, the above areas are great, but make sure you realize that some have higher electric...i.e. Ivins. Also check HOA's ...some can be brutal!
