The St. George trade area lies within two hours of some of the nation’s most popular national park areas including Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon, Brian Head Ski Resort, and more than 40 additional state and national recreation areas and points of interest. These recreational areas recorded over 10.1 million annual visits last year, with nearly 9 million tourists from other states. Travelers to Southern Utah spent $8.4 Billion in the last year, supporting the local St. George economy. In addition, projected population growth is 214% from 2018 to 2050; from 280,000 to 600,000. These numbers continue to break previous records every year. Many of these tourists use St. George as their “base camp”, as it is centrally located to the many national parks and only 90 minutes from Las Vegas. Come see what beautiful St. George has to offer.
