The Community - Salt Lake City, UT
Utah's capital city, and the only one with an international
airport, emanates a small-town feel. Downtown is easy to get around
and " outside of entertainment enclaves " come evening it's fairly
quiet. You'd never know 1.2 million people live in the metro area.
Yes, this is the Mormon equivalent of Vatican City, and the LDS
owns a lot of land, but less than half the town's population are

great-outdoors-at-your-doorstep vibe have attracted a wide range of
residents. A liberal spirit is evident everywhere from the
coffeehouses to the yoga classes, where elaborate tattoos are the
norm. Foodies will find much to love among the multitude of

African). And when the trail beckons, you're a scant 45 minutes
from the Wasatch Mountains' brilliant hiking and skiing. Friendly
people, great food and outdoor adventure " what could be
