Hello again,

I would like to know whether or not y'all enjoy life in St. George. What is the local cultural/arts scene like? Any good recreational spots to choose from nearby? How are the locals?Yes, I'm aware that it is mostly LDS, but if I'm not mistaken, there are a few very beautiful Episcopal churches (my denomination) in the area. Finally, I'd like to know if a) it is a good place for a college graduate, and b) how hot do the summers usually get? I'm pretty sure it's not as bad as Arizona, but is it bearable? Thanks and sorry for all the questions!

I love St George. This area is pristine and has so much outdoor recreation to offer. There are plenty of college graduates here. Myself being one. It depends on what your field of study is. I am in healthcare. I plan to live in this area a very long time.

There is something about the people here. They are friendly and cheery for the most part. People smile as you make your way around town. There are a lot of old people that drive slow, too. I can't speak much on arts scene, people seem to love Tuacahn outdoor amphitheater, though. Recreation is endless…We offer Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Snow Canyon State Park, Grand Canyon (only a few hours southeast), Las Vegas less than 2 hour drive, Cedar mountain for hiking, camping, hunting, snowboarding and skiing, etc. 3 reservoirs within the county for water recreation. A brand new airport.

There are Episcopal churches here most definitely.

Summer temps- Usually hang out around 105-112 degrees. Can get higher but usually not sustained. Summer monsoon thunderstorms are amazing here. If you can handle an Arizona Sonoran desert summer, you can easily handle it here. We are high mojave desert.

I dont live in AZ, I'm from Tennessee. I was just using it as a point of comparison. 3 things I hate about nashville: summer humidity, spring/fall downpours, and pollen. Are any of those a problem in St. George.

There's plenty of pollen. As Dude91 said, St. George is in the corner of the Mojave Desert, so it does get hot, but it is dry and not humid and there are summer thunderstorms.

Read the St. George News on Facebook and pay particular attention to the comments. It will give you an idea of the culture. Best to know up front what you're getting in to.

I live in Cedar City, which is cooler and at a higher elevation. There's a Shakespeare Festival and they're building an art museum.
