St. George UT Affordable City to Live

Best Cheapest Cities to Live

When it comes to cheap cities, less is not always best. Many times, cities that have low cost living also suffer from poverty, high unemployment and lack of services. However, not all low cost cities are that bad. Therefore, I have found a list of low cost cities to live that are economically healthy and safe. In that list, St. George UT was near the top. The community was chosen based on low-cost living, low-cost things to do and tons of activities.

Why St. George Was Chosen as a Best Cheap City to Live

You get the great outdoors for less when you live in St. George UT. Located in the southwest portion of Utah, St. George sits by the Virgin River, which offers tons of outdoor play. There are many state parks and conservation areas close by including Zion National Park. And, the Grand Canyon is just across the border for added appeal.

Scenic views will cost you a premium, but most places offer a nice view for little cost. The median home value in St. George is $226,000. The plus side is that utilities are very reasonable and healthcare costs are really low when compared to cities of comparable size.

Even though the city has a small population, the unemployment rate is really low. Work opportunities are plenty available too. The top fields in St. George, UT include education and health care; however, there are other industries including hotels, spas, and other businesses that cater to tourism.

City Facts:

  • Cost of living – 8.4% below national average
  • City population – 76,000+
  • Unemployment rate – 4.2%

Spooky Town Fair in St. George UT

St. George UT Spooky Town Fair

Spooky Town Fair in St. George UT

The St. George Spooky Town Fair kicks off this Friday and will continue through Saturday. Offering a fun, affordable weekend activity for families, the Spooky Town Fair offers a variety of vendors, games and live entertainment. The proceeds from each ticket sale will go to support the Washington County School District Foundation.

This is the third annual Spooky Town Fair. The fair offers fun activities for families as well as to help raise money for the teacher and classroom grants fund operated by the foundation. It’s a great fundraiser, but it’s also great fun and a way for the kids to celebrate Halloween adventures. There will be tons of vendor booths, craft booths and carnival games.”

Tickets for the carnival games are a $1 apiece, which is affordable for families and is the primary revenue source from the fundraiser. Last year the event raised around $40,000 combined with several other fundraisers, which was enough money to be able to accommodate most the teacher grant requests in the school district. All too often, teachers have to spend their own money to buy things for the classroom, so the organization wants to do this to help give teachers money so they don’t have to us their own.

In addition to the games and entertainment, local restaurants and food vendors are selling food at the event, organized by the St. George Area Chamber of Commerce, which is in its second year of partnering with the foundation for Spooky Town.

For nearly five years prior, the chamber did its own business expo each year, but that was dropped in favor of partnering with the school district foundation for Spooky Town. They wanted to have more community involvement and this is a good way for the chamber members to support the foundation and the community.   It’s also a good way for the community to come and support by patronizing the food vendors and participating in the fun. There’s truly something for everyone.

Last year the two-day event brought in about 10,000 visitors and the organizers hope to continue that trend this year.

Event Details:

√ Date: Friday and Saturday, October 24th and 25th, 2014

√ Time: 10 am to 5 pm

√ Location: St. George, UT Town Square, 175 E 200 North
