It seems that we all are looking to move to a better place with more opportunity and growth. Someplace that isn’t a big city and not a rural farm area. A place that our kids can grow up, but also be able to enjoy single living. Below are just five reasons among many other reason on why you should move to Utah.
Strong Job Market: Utah has the second-lowest unemployment rate in the nation, with that being said, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding a job when you move over here, specially if you have the skills and work ethic to thrive in local businesses. As of last year, Utah’s “January’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped two-tenths from last month, measuring 3.4 percent”. A location that can help you stay stable financially, will keep you happy and stress free.
Young & Smart: The average age of Utah residents is 27, with 90.7 percent of Utah’s graduating high school, 30 percent go on to getting higher education. Salt Lake Community College ranks as the 2nd bestcommunity college within the nation, serving over 65,000 students. Westminster ranking at 22nd in universities in the nation, as well as BYU and UofU cracking into the top 50.
Outdoor Recreation: Now this is the fun stuff, you can go snowboard the white powdered mountains that Olympic specialist/Pro Snowboarders have or head down south and hike the natural arches and beautiful canyons. Moab, for example, is a national park, known for having the best mountain biking in the nation. With beautiful scenery, enormous canyons and plenty of trails that meets everyone’s needs, it’s an essential addition to your must-do list of Utah. Park City is loaded with skiing, snowboarding, and of course the Sundance Film Festival.
