Dry Air, Warm Weather and Year-Round Golf Bring Retirees to 55+ Single Family Home Community in Southwestern Utah

Pretty St. George, a town situated in the very southwestern corner of Utah, is a favorite spot for retirement, and SunRiver, a master-planned, gated, 55+ development on the outskirts of town, was built to accommodate the area's growing retiree population.  This energetic community was established in 1998 and has 600+ single family homes that, with tan sandstone exteriors and red tile roofs, resemble Spanish Colonial villas.  It is a well designed place, neat and tidy under a blue desert sky.




All homes have attached garages, and the landscaping is primarily Xeriscape (drought resistant plants).  Visit www.sunriver.com for more information.

The heart of SunRiver is its 6,700 yard, 18 hole, SunRiver St. George Golf Course, a meandering course designed for all skill levels, and considering that St. George's average January high is in the mid-50s, one that can be played nearly year-round.   To drive home the point that this is a golf friendly community, golf carts can be driven practically anywhere on the grounds, and most of the amenities have golf cart parking areas.  Some of the homes are even built with a golf cart garage.

In addition to golf, residents enjoy a 29,000 sq. ft. community center that offers tennis, two swimming pools, numerous game rooms and a wide variety of clubs and activities.  This center is a great spot for meeting friends and is the socializing center of SunRiver.  The NewLife Fitness Center has state of the art exercise equipment, and for those that need some help staying on a fitness regimen, the NewLife Fitness Program provides residents with a personalized fitness routine and personal trainer.  No more excuses for not getting in shape!  In fact, many residents participate in the annual World Senior Games held in St. George each October.

SunRiver also presents the Institute for Continued Learning (ICL) in conjunction with Dixie State College.  For about $50 a year, retirees can attend an array of classes and participate in all sorts of activities from hiking trips to museum tours.   Nearby Zion Canyon Field Institute in Zion National Park also offers classes, as does the St. George Senior Center. 

St. George, etched into dramatic red rock cliffs, is in a pretty setting with a dry, sunny climate.  The city is within close driving distance of eight state and national parks, including the north rim of the Grand Canyon, and itself has an elaborate network of hiking and bicycling trails, three reservoirs and numerous parks.  For anyone seeking an active, year-round outdoor lifestyle, St. George is the place to be.
