Utah has experienced a steady population increase over the last decade. As a result, more and more home buyers are discovering the high quality of life available to them in this beautiful Western state. With majestic natural landscapes, a wide range of options for enjoying the outdoors, and a stable economy with a regional tech sector on the rise, it is no wonder that Utah is topping the list for many people who are looking to make a move.
Unique Access to Nature
From pristine waterways to soaring mountain peaks, lush forest to striking desert formations—Utah offers up some of the nation’s most stunning natural landscapes and plenty of opportunities to explore it all. Utah’s Salt Lake Valley is nestled near a range of high mountain creeks, bubbling streams, lakes, and reservoirs. The Provo and Weber Rivers are popular locations for fly fishing. At the same time, the Jordanelle Reservoir, Deer Creek State Park, and Utah Lake State Park provide fun and family-friendly water access for paddle boarding and kayaking. Thousands of trails weave through the hills and mountains adjacent to the Salt Lake Valley with breathtaking views of Mount Timpanogos. Set out by bike or on foot and explore the meandering beauty of Wasatch Mountain State Park, American Fork Canyon, and Little and Big Cottonwood Canyons.
Residents who love to hit both the slopes and the links will find that Utah is the perfect place to call home. Ten acclaimed ski resorts are conveniently located within an hour of the Salt Lake Valley, including Park City Resort, The Canyons, Deer Valley, Woodward, and Sundance. Park City, Utah, and the surrounding area are home to seven public golf courses and eight private golf courses featuring incredible mountain views, with top golf destinations like Park City Golf Club, Canyons Golf Club, Wasatch Golf Mountain, and Wasatch Golf Lake all nearby. Living in Utah allows endless opportunities to pursue your passions in a gorgeous natural setting.
Opportunities in the Growing Tech Sector
Silicon Slopes, a hub for technology similar to Silicon Valley in California, is a stretch between Salt Lake City and Provo, Utah, where various tech firms reside, from small startups to well-known innovators and brands. Companies with locations in Utah include Adobe, Workfront, Facebook, Ancestry, Vivint Solar, and Lucid Software. Google has also purchased hundreds of acres of land in Eagle Mountain, UT, a potential site for a future data center. For tech professionals, Utah offers an appealing way of life and a relatively low cost of living compared to other cities, a factor undoubtedly contributing to the state’s steady influx of new residents.
