    money mag picRanked #47 in the nation.

    We say it all the time. Southern Utah is beautiful. We love it, and we can give you 101 reasons that it is a great place to live, but we are biased. We know we are. The red sand is between our toes and there is no other place we’d rather call home.

    But take a look at a more quantitative, non-biased opinion.

    Money magazine evaluated factors such as population size, median income, cultural diversity, education scores, economic opportunity, housing affordability, crime, health, arts & leisure, and ease of living. Click here to read about the criteria factors in greater depth. St. George ranked number 47 in the nation. The article summed up St. George’s attraction saying:

    Stunning red-rock cliffs frame this sunny metropolis, which is located midway between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City. Dry summers, mild winters, and short commutes add up to an overall ease-of-living score higher than any other place in the top 50.

    Terrific weather and low cost—the median home price is just over $200,000—has attracted many retirees to St. George. But top employers such as SkyWest Airlines also draw folks still in their working years.  St. George’s population has grown 50% since the turn of the century, and the downtown is now peppered with new cafes, shops, and upscale restaurants, plus historic buildings that date back as far as the 1860’s.

    Not surprisingly, the region is also a hotbed for outdoor adventures. There are several award-winning golf courses in town, and Zion National Park is less than an hour away. (Link to article.)

    The word is spreading about the treasure that is Southern Utah.
