Also need reliable cable or satellite TV. Need convenient access to interstate highways and airport for fun trips around the great American West.
Might be a problem, St George is only chains. Don't take my word for it. To quote Moon's travel guide to Utah (Pg. 355, 2013 edition): "For a major recreation and retirement center, St George is curiously lacking in unique places to eat. Almost every chain restaurant can be found here, but don't expect a bevy of local fine-dining houses." Moon goes on to say (Pg. 349), "Although it has gained a reputation as a retirement haven, thanks in large part to its warm weather climate and plethora of golf courses, it is not a particularly appealing place to most travelers." What Moon says is true. And you have to wonder about a city in the middle of desert with lots of golf courses and enormous expectations of growth. My wife and I considered St George but rejected it for these reasons, among others. And yes, we did visit first.

Breakfast places to eat are fine, but other dinner restaurants, true...far and few. Everything else you want is here.

As a resident of SC and knowing "Dirty Myrtle" where one of the posters is from I hear what he is saying and we are kind of in the same situation. We live in the north end of the state and have many of the same problems he does. We too are booking reservations for the family to fly into SLC and we will be spending a week or a bit more driving the entire Western Corridor seeing if Utah is a place we would like to live. We know Moab well being off road people and have visited several times but have never been anywhere else in the state. We visited Phoenix last summer and although NICE it was not our cup of tea. Our hope is to find something around Southern UT where it's somewhat warm and not blistering cold. We do 100-115 degree no problem in Moab, mornings and evenings seem just PERFECT. Here in SC we easily do 98-102 every summer but it's 58-90% humidity 24/7. Phoenix we found was blistering hot in the day but dry and fine, we waited for evening and morning like in Moab and it was just as blistering HOT!! WOW.... Nope 100 degrees at 11pm is not our cup of tea.

I would love to hear from the SC Poster and what he thought of St. George, we will be visiting in 3-4 weeks got to make plane reservations.

Or just ask a question and an actual resident of STG could assist you?

I have but I like to see varied opinions, being from his general area and knowing where he lives pretty well, and having similar issues here in this part of the state I am curious as to his views after the visit.
