One of the great things about living in the amazing little city of St George is our closeness to nature. The beautiful red rock surrounding our fair town provides an other-worldly backdrop not found anywhere else. Partner that with our moderate temperatures even during the winter and we’re ripe for something like the St George Festival del Sol 2018. This annual mountain biking event takes advantage of nature in all its glory. And it’s happening soon.
