Moving to Utah

Moving to a new state can be a bit scary. New surroundings, new people, and new cultural habits can be enough to intimidate even the bravest of movers. Lucky for you, you’re moving to a state with amazing surroundings, awesome people, and a welcoming culture. Utah is not only a beautiful place to live, it’s also a fun and friendly home for newcomers from all walks of life. Check out some of the state’s highlights below.

Outdoor Recreation

This part isn’t so surprising. Utah is home to “the greatest snow on Earth” after all. Of course, Utah winters are great for hitting some of the best slopes at some of the most amazing resorts in the world. However, Utah is also a great outdoor sport hub during the summer and spring months. Gorgeous hiking and biking trails are scattered throughout both Utah and Salt Lake Counties. Fresh water reservoirs and rivers are also great for boating, swimming, rafting, and sunbathing.


This might come as a surprise if you’re moving here from a large city, but Utah is actually full of awesome opportunities for fun and social interaction. Salt Lake City offers great spots for shopping like City Creek and Gateway Mall. There are also tons of amazing restaurants as well as cool events going on regularly at the Salt Palace Events Center. The great part is that Utah County is just as exciting as Salt Lake County. University Mall and the shops at Traverse Mountain offer great shopping spots as well as entertainment sites and restaurants. Thanksgiving Point also offers amazing entertainment opportunities for families and individuals with varying interests. Some attractions include one of the largest dinosaur museums in the world and a PGA acknowledged golf course.


The Utah school system boasts some of the best schools in the nation. Public and private options are available throughout the state, offering top notch instructors and curriculum to all students. Utah universities such as Brigham Young University, the University of Utah, Utah Valley University, and Utah State also offer incredible opportunities for older children and future scholars to achieve a quality higher education.

Robust Economy

Arguably one of the most amazing things about Utah is the opportunity for growth and forward progression. This state is an attractive hub for major corporations from across the globe. Why? Because our environment is safe, our economy healthy, and cost of living low. This growth has created a thriving job market with seemingly endless opportunity.
