So I am considering a move to a relatively small town. Currently I live in Salt Lake City. Having lived in other warm climates before (Phoenix and San Diego) I long for year-round warm weather. Also, the air quality in SLC is getting exponentially worse every year and unless they can move mountains (literally) it's only going to get worse. So I am considering moving to St. George, so that my wife can be near her grandmother for support. Pros: -Weather -Real estate is ridiculous. We can easily afford a very nice/large house with a pool there. -Close to friends/family in Salt Lake and support for grandmother in St George. -Close to Vegas for entertainment and friends -Closer to San Diego (maybe a stepping stone back to my favorite city) Cons: -Weather (it can get really hot there, but it bothers me much less than the cold) -Mormons- I'm not discriminatory, but I've heard that they may be in St. George and the local govt. is pretty well representative of the aging Mormon population without much room to budge toward any other perspective. -Nightlife... extreme lack of quality bars. I can dive it up for a bit but the novelty wears off quick and I don't drink Bud Light. Music: I'm not sure what to expect. I know the scene is likely small, but that also may offer opportunity to pick from the top shelf (assuming there is some) of projects if I can get out and meet some people. It's kind of a strange fantasy wondering about the lifestyle and maybe less distractions. I never really thought I would be seriously considering it but ... Anybody make a move to a smaller town and have any advice or experience to share?
