I know little about both, so I shouldn't really post, but for me, just looking at St. George, at the 1990 census it was apparently 78% LDS, which would certainly put me off, so despite knowing very little about each, I'm voting for Grand Junction. Just thought I'd put that out there see if it bothers you.

I'd pick St. George. It is probably best in all categories listed. It is also near Las Vegas which could be a fun day trip. It is not nearly as LDS as the rest of Utah. It is much more beautiful than Grand Junction. I don't really think Grand Junction has anything better than St. George.

St. George really does look beautiful, but I just looked on it's page on this site (the LDS figure I found before was on wikipedia) and the LDS adherents in 2002 were 92.5%!!!!!

So what? Do you have some sort of problem with Mormons? There may be a lot of Mormons there, but it is MUCH less of a Mormon area than where I live in Utah County. St. George is a very nice place to live even for non-Mormons.

No, not in St. George. Up north it might be less easy, but St. George is much more accepting.

Well you must know there are stereotypes that they are one of the more vocal of the christian denominations. In fact, anywhere which is so overwhelmingly one religion is a place I don't really wish to live. Wikipedia says ARDA recorded Provo as having 88% LDS, so I guess that is higher. When it comes to religion, I'm kind of live and let live; you don't bother me, I won't bother you, but if I resided in a town where I felt that people were overtly a certain way, that would not be my cup of tea.
