Saint George has become a tourist town. This is part of the reason there are good restaurants in this small city. Though families have lived here since the area was settled by the Mormon church in the 1850’s, its recent decades of growth have been driven partially by retirees, but mostly by tourism. With Southern California 6 hours away, Las Vegas less than 2 hours away, and Salt Lake City 4 hours away, Saint George has become a popular vacation spot. As a result, there has been a large increase in the number and variety of restaurants in the area. Please check out our review section to read about restaurants we highly recommend.
