The Beehive state has been steadily growing in popularity over the past years. Outdoor adventures, young families, and retirees have been flocking to Utah to take advantage of the low cost of living, safe and friendly communities, the city-culture, and the gorgeous outdoor landscapes.
While Utah is filled with an abundance of great communities, here are the top six best and safest Utah cities:
One of the most interesting cities in Utah is Lehi. This small town area is filled with charming stores and sprawling parks and hiking trails, and is rich with history. It’s near both Salt Lake City and Provo, both of which are well-known metropolitan cities. Though Lehi has been a city for quite some time, it is growing with popularity. Many Utah home builders have begun constructing gorgeous housing communities that overlook the natural, scenic landscape of Lehi.
- South Jordan
Down below Salt Lake, South Jordan is a family-oriented city full of family-friendly housing communities. For families looking for a safe city with good academics, South Jordan is an ideal city. Most of the housing communities are within walking distance of the schools, the downtown shopping area, and the parks, lake, and other recreational activities.
Near Salt Lake City, Holladay is one of the friendliest cities around, which keeps the crime rate extremely low. Plus, the area is filled with great attractions, including awesome outdoor adventures. Because the weather averages in the low ‘70s during the summer months, Holladay is one of the best places to be if you love being outside.
Centerville City makes the list because of the low cost of living it offers to its residents. Plus, the city has one of the lowest unemployment rates in all of the state. Coupled with the low sales tax Centerville is easily an inexpensive area to raise a family in. Plus, the city has that idyllic small town feel where locals participate in community-wide events, such as parades, and parents feel safe allowing their children to play outside.
- North Salt Lake City
One of the most attractive aspects about North Salt Lake City is its beautiful year-around weather. In the summer time, the temperatures rarely rise above an even 75, making the lake in the city the ideal spot to picnic, play, and enjoy the perfect weather. For those who want to live in a safe community without feeling like they are in the middle of nowhere, North Salt Lake is the perfect compromise.
This city is known for its low crime rate, low unemployment rate, and low sales tax. Additionally, Kaysville has an extremely low student-to-teacher ratio. Students have more opportunities to receive one-on-one teaching, which can greatly aid in excellent academia. Kaysville is also known for its Cherry Hill Amusement Park as well as the Utah Botanical Center, making it a great family community.
