St George overview

Known as Utah's Dixie, St. George is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States as well as a popular destination for golfers.

Outdoor scenes in Western blockbusters such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Jeremiah Johnson were filmed in and around the city, as were location shots for High School Musical 2.

Last, but by very no means least, the Grand Canyon is 250 miles (402 km) to the southeast, just over the Arizona border, while Las Vegas is a little under two hours away.
