It’s easy to pigeon-hole Salt Lake City. It’s a great skiing destination. It’s the home of the Salt Lake Temple, the center of the Mormon faith. It’s hard to buy (full-strength) beer. But there’s a lot more to Salt Lake City that makes it a great place to live and work.
For instance, you probably don’t know that in recent years the region has added 150 miles of light and commuter rail, reducing commute times, congestion and pollution. Or that the University of Utah spins off more businesses than any university in the nation – including MIT, Harvard and Stanford. Or, that the majority of public school students are minorities. Or that it has been named the “Gayest City in America” by Advocate magazine.
