St. George is beautiful with red sandstone mountains. It can get a
little hot but it's dry heat like Las Vegas (where we live). The
cooler temperatures are a short 1 hr drive up to Pine Valley. Zion
Park is near by. Why have you chosen St. George?
Now, to the more difficult question about radiation. In the 50's,
when NTS did above ground testing and the winds blow toward St.
George many of the residence got cancer. I don't remember if it
was ever proven it came from the Nevada Test Site or if anyone ended
up with compensation from the government.
I would think now the danger would be very low. Are you interested in
genealogy? There is a Family History Center in this quaint small town.
