Utah Has it All
With the tallest average peaks in the country and the best dry powder for skiing to Rainbow Bridge, the world’s largest natural rock span standing 278 feet wide and 309 feet high, Utah is a state that houses some pretty spectacular and surprising gems and has a laid back but recreational lifestyle that people are flocking to in droves. Whether you’re interested in new homes in Utah or a getaway vacation, this beautiful state has it all!
Named after the Native American Ute tribe, or “people of the mountains” and home to five national parks, seven national monuments and six national forests, it’s easy to assume that Utah is a sleepy mountain state without a whole lot else going on for it other than religion and the former glory of the Olympics. If this is the impression that you are currently under, you couldn’t be any further from the truth. It might surprise you to know that Utah is often referred to as “little Hollywood” due to the vast number of films and TV productions that are filmed in various locations throughout the state. It may hold numerous natural wonders but its cities and centers are as cosmopolitan as you will find anywhere in the country. New homes in Utah can still be acquired at reasonable prices and a jobless rate well below the national average. With all manner of service and industry available and mixed with a vast array of outdoor options and activities, there is nothing you could possibly want for in the country’s 11th largest state.
Due in part to its above average family size, highest national literacy rate and very strong immigration, Utah is proving itself to be a robust state that expects to continue this forward momentum in both lifestyle and economic growth well into the future. With new homes in Utah being snapped up by people wanting the best of both worlds, it is quickly becoming the place to be.
