We are considering a move to St. George...blah blah blah.

Anyway, we currently live at least 20 minutes from anywhere (by car)...I'd love to be convenient to everything for once in my life. Are there any great walkable, bikeable neighborhoods we should focus on for our move? We're planning to rent for a while.

Also, kind of off the topic, but what is the closest body of water to St Geore (for recreational purposes)?

off the top of my head, i'm guessing that sand hollow reservoir is the closest body of water. and snow canyon has a pretty cool bike trail that extends out into st george. you can make it a long loop, or you can bike/jog only as much of it as you want. snow canyon is gorgeous, and well worth the trip.

We like where we are here in Green Spring Heights...close to Costco, Walmart, Home Depot, Kohls, new in n out burger, sportsmen's, office max, roberts, best buy...all within a mile or mile and a half and totally bikeable or walkable except in the dead of summer, too hot. There are nice areas all around, but we love being this close. Will miss the shops so close by when we get the house sold and move..

even in the summer though, those that can discipline themselves to get up early enough (not me anymore; once i got out of the usmc, i was done with that) can enjoy a ride or run in cooler temps.

How early do you need to get up to have it be cooler? Does it cool down at night a little or does it stay in the 90's and up at night too?

Most mornings I wake up pretty early, I am not a very good sleeper anymore, if I am up at 5 it could range from 75-85 if it's really stifling...by the middle of September the temps at night start to cool down

Dogmom, did they ever put the virgin river trail back together after the floods from a few years back?
I used to take that trail every evening with my bike back when i lived there. That was a great trail.
