Life in Utah

Utah is a Ute Indian word meaning "home on the mountain top" and makes sense if you consider that Utah is the rooftop of the United States. The average elevation of the tallest peaks in each of Utah's counties is 11,222 feet above sea level, higher than the same average of any other state. Utah also has incredible deserts and plateau regions.

 

Visitors love Utah's extravagant landscapes, its awesome redrock canyons, lush emerald forests and flaming sunsets. There is nothing like making first tracks on fresh snow, flyfishing in a trout stream or just listening to aspen leaves whisper in a cool autumn breeze. Utah's attractions include world-class skiing, canyons, gorgeous lakes, five breathtaking national parks and 43 state parks.

 

Utah is a wonderful place to live and work. Utah's economy, internationally recognized for its rapid job growth, low unemployment and increasing diversity, is as strong as it has ever been. Utah's work force is outstanding and continues to earn national acclaim. 

Utah ranks among the leading states in the educational attainment of its population. The state's system of public and private education offers a high quality educational experience for the nearly one-half million students in elementary and secondary programs. Utah has six four-year, degree-granting universities and colleges, including four state institutions and two private institutions as well as five community colleges.

It's not hard to understand why Utah is experiencing such a rapid population increase. Utah is truly an incredible place to live. Utah's low crime rate and growing job market coupled with our beautiful surroundings, make it difficult to find a place more suitable to live and raise a family.
