I have always wanted to live in the Southwest. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and there is so much I don't like about it. I hate the climate. Right now I am living in Alaska and the crime & alcoholism is very depressing. I am NOT a drinker, I love spending time in God's great outdoors, I am very active and like being healthy. I prefer dry air, lots of sunshine, super HOT summers (100 degrees is nothin'!). I LOVE being outside. I LOVE hiking, walking my 2 dogs, swimming (if I can find a pool), and gazing up at stars at night (which I can hardly see in most cities I've lived in). My husband and I are ready for a change. We are Christians and we love Mormons, so I am not worried about that at all. But I am worried about being able to find jobs out there, we do have college degrees so hopefully that will help.

Is the St. George area dog-friendly? Any off leash dog parks or good places to go hiking nearby? Also, are there any all-natural grocery stores or at least stores that sell organic produce?

There's tons of hiking. It's also located next to national parks.

Sounds like St George is the place for you, except for that pesky job issue. If you have degrees that will work in the medical or mental health field you should be fine. utah.gov, southernutahhelpwanted.com are good starting points to see whats available job wise.
I think there is or soon will be an all natural grocery store. But, this time of year there is plenty of farm fresh produce.

This is a beautiful place to live. Good luck!!

There is a natural food store in St George. It's a nice little store. Also, it's a pretty big town now, so I'm sure that a Whole Foods is likely to open there at some point.

Many walking trails, beautiful scenery, gorgeous. Saw many people walking their dogs while I was there, although not familiar with the leash laws, as I don't have a dog. Very excited to move there in September.

Dry it is. I've been to St. George a hundred times and not once has anyone asked me if I'm Mormon. I find that question actually pretty funny. There are a lot of Educated people in Utah and there are not a lot of jobs in St. George. I considered relocating there but there just isn't a lot of business. Seems to be mostly a service based economy.

I agree about the economy. If you think about it, St. George is a relatively new city and metro. 20 years ago very few people were living there (I think there were 4,000 people in 1980), so there hasn't been a lot of time for business to evolve there. The big players would be the college, the medical field, and Skywest....and of course construction / real estate, but that's taken a big hit recently.
