St. George is the seventh-largest city in Utah, and the most populous city in the state outside of the Wasatch Front. St. George is the commercial hub of southern Utah and Utah’s Dixie, a nickname given to the area when Mormon pioneers grew cotton in the warm climate.(*)

St. George was founded as a cotton mission in 1861 under the direction of Brigham Young, there is a lot of Pioneer history in the area and also a lot of pre-historic/dinosaur diggings and findings.
