Located in the southwestern part of Utah on the Arizona border, St. George is the 8th most populous city in the state and the county seat of Washington County. With a desert climate, St. George is remarkably hotter on average than the rest of Utah. Going back in history, St. George was founded in 1861 when Brigham Young, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, sent families to the area to establish the Cotton Mission. During that same year, the American Civil War had begun and Young wanted to make sure there was enough cotton to supply the needs of his people. Young named the settlement St. George in honor of Mormon apostle George A. Smith. While the settlers did erect a cotton factory and cultivate cotton, cotton eventually proved to be an unsuccessful venture and therefore was abandoned. In 1863, St. George became the county seat of Washington County and construction began on the St. George Tabernacle. The St. George Utah Temple began construction in 1871 and was dedicated in 1877; it was the first temple in Utah.

St. George has a population of 72,897 and the racial makeup of the city is 87.2% White, 12.8% Hispanic, 0.8% Asian, and 0.7% African American (2010 Census). The very low crime rate makes St. George a safe city to reside in.

Much of the economy is centered on St. George being a tourist and retirement destination. People are attracted to St. George because of its scenic beauty and its close proximity to Zion National Park and Grand Canyon National Park. The St. George Arts Festival has been held in the city since 1980 and includes over 100 artists and a wide array of contemporary Southwestern indigenous art. Another big event held in the city is the St. George Marathon, the 13th largest marathon in the United States. Points of interest in the city include the St. George Utah Temple, the Pioneer Park, the Red Hills Desert Garden, the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm, and the St. George Children's Museum.

Logan is located in northern Utah on the Logan River and is the county seat of Cache County. Logan lies in the Cache Valley on the western slopes of the Bear River Mountains. Logan has a humid continental climate, characterized by hot, dry summers and cold winters with moderate snowfall. Going back in history, Logan was founded in 1859 when Brigham Young sent Mormon settlers to the Cache Valley to survey for the site of a fort. The new community was named Logan in 1860 and was incorporated in 1866. Brigham Young College was founded in 1878 and the Agricultural College of Utah (currently Utah State University) was founded in 1888.
