The Top 4 Best Things About Living in Utah

We did it again! In 2021, Utah was ranked the third best state in the nation. This ranking is based on health care, education, the economy, crime rates, opportunity, landscape, and more.

Indeed, living in Utah is a dream come true for long-time residents and brand new residents. Everyone wants to get out and explore our national parks and the potential for earning here is spectacular.

But, don’t take our word for it. Let’s take a deep dive into four of the best reasons for moving to Utah.

1. The Landscape

You’ll be hard-pressed to find mountains and valleys that rival Utah anywhere else in the country. The colors and canyons alone are breathtaking.

Take Arches National Park, for example. Some 2,000 sandstone arches exist as a result of this area’s unique geology. If you happen to be there at sunset, you’ll be astonished by the way the sky lights up amidst these clay-colored arches.

Monument Valley is another show-stopper. It’s close to the Four Corners and an icon of the great American West. Here are a few other natural wonders that only Utah can lay claim to:

  • Grand Staircase-Escalante National Park
  • Bryce Canyon National Park
  • Zion National Park
  • Bonneville Salt Flats
  • Great Salt Lake
  • Lake Powell

2. The Economy

Out of all the prosperous states in our golden land of opportunity, Utah was ranked number one in the nation for gross domestic product (GDP). That means there’s no finer market in the country to market your goods and services.

This title still stands, even post-pandemic. In fact, our economy bounced back faster than any other economy in the nation. Some of our powerhouse industries include farming, coal mining, salt production, cattle ranching, government services, and tourism.

If you have a mind to break into any of these industries, this is the state to set up shop.

3. Family Life

Utah has an outstanding safety record. The crime rate is low across the entire state. To be more specific, it’s 35% lower than the national average. Indeed, buying or building a home in Utah is a safe bet.

If you have kids, you’ll be pleased to know the education system ranks well, too. Utah ranks 10th in the country for its quality of education, from Pre-K to post-grad.

In 2021, Utah was the only state in the country that gave as big of a boost to its education system (while the rest of the nation was still trying to recover from the pandemic).

4. The Climate

Everyone likes to talk about the weather. Well, here in Utah, no news is good news. We boast a dry, semi-arid desert-like climate. We also have one of the lowest relative humidity percentages.

That means you won’t melt into a puddle in the Salt Flats or dribble into the canyons in Arches National Park.

It’s that infamous “dry heat” that people always talk about. But, lacking any substantial humidity, it’s far more palpable than some of the states in the south.

Conversely, our winters aren’t as harsh. Again, without that moisture in the air, we don’t get pounded with bad weather like the states in the north.

In the end, what you’ll see here are uniquely blue skies dotted with picture-perfect cotton ball clouds.
