St. George Utah River Running Guide

Weather for St. George Utah Forecast

St. George is a city located in the southwestern part of Utah, and the county seat of Washington County.  The city is 119 miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, and 303 miles south of Salt Lake City on Interstate 15.

St. George is the population and commercial center of Utah's Dixie, a nickname given to the area when Mormon pioneers grew cotton in the warm climate. St. George's trademark is its geology — red bluffs make up the northern part of the city with two peaks covered in lava rock in the city's center. The northeastern edges of the Mojave Desert are visible to the south. Zion National Park can be seen to the east, and mountains are nearby to the north, southeast and west. It is also near Bryce Canyon National Park. The city is a popular retirement destination and is host to the largest Spring Break parties in Utah.

St. George is southern Utah's largest city. It occupies an attractive stretch of green beneath red rock cliffs in Utah's desert southwest. Its pleasant winter weather attracts a large number of "snowbirds" from the north, who stay for extended periods in the winter while their neighbors back home get socked.
