There are so many different ways to measure cities, regions and states that it can be difficult to sort through them all. However, if you look at various measurements of Utah, you'll find it near the top of several important lists: best places to start a business, best places to retire, best places to raise a family and best places to live, among others.
Here in St. George, we're proud of our contributions to Utah's growing national reputation as a destination spot. Part of making our city business- and family-friendly is our devotion to having the tools needed for both to thrive: good schools, a growing economy, an educated workforce, low unemployment and confidence among residents that growth is sustainable.
A few years ago, inc.com took a look at St. George to see why a modest-sized city is able to attract both businesses and families to relocate here. Part of our charm is due to nature's generosity, of course: Zion and Bryce National Parks are nearby, offering some of the most spectacular vistas anywhere. Our beautiful setting makes for an ideal place to settle in retirement, of course, but perhaps even more compelling is our bustling economy and rigorous attention to making the start-up of a business less complicated than it is across much of America.
When entrepreneurs look at available commercial opportunities in Washington County, they see not only our sustained population growth over many years, but also the presence of like-minded businesspeople able to grow their enterprises, too. There are commercial properties available to lease or buy and an abundance of viable development opportunities.
