Can deal with the lack of Nordstroms but Starbucks would be nice ~

In Oct. we plan on coming out to look around. Any pointers would be appreciated.


I don't think there are any "up and coming towns" around here, using a basic definition of that phrase.

If you don't like snow, Washington County (St George area) & part of Kane County (Kanab area) are the only two counties (& specifically, you'd want the southern part of either county).

If you don't like high heat (Summer averages between 100 - 110) that rules out most of Washington County.

The best you could do -- using weather as the main factor, would be one of the small communities in Eastern Washington County like Springdale or Rockville -- usually about 10 degrees cooler in the Summer than St George, but with some, not a lot of snow & cold temps in the Winter.

Kanab, down in Kane County, is about the same though you'd experience more culture-shock there compared to Washington County.

There are actually two Starbucks in cedar city, Utah. My brother lives in Cedar City and he loves it. I think cedar city gets between 48-52 inches of snow in the wintertime and right now it’s in the 90’s. So you receive more snow and sunshine. Cedar city is more liberal because it’s a college town. ������ St. George gets a lot hotter in the summer time right now it’s in the hundreds everyday and they get almost no snow. St. George is conservative and Mormon filled town.
