1. Logan

Logan, a fast growing city in Cache County near the state’s northern border, is our pick for Utah’s best city to live in. The city is home to Utah State University and a slew of large companies that drive the Logan’s strong economy.

2. Kaysville

Kaysville is a pleasant middle-class community in Davis County. Recently, Kaysville became the first city in the nation to have an official podcast.

3. Lehi

Ranking third is Lehi, a rapidly growing city of around 62,000 that is named after a prophet in the Book of Mormon. Young professionals are flocking to the city and its job growth rate is currently at 2.6%.

4. Park City

Park City is the perfect home for those that love the outdoors. Nestled within snow capped mountains, the city is one of the most picturesque in the country and home to two ski resorts. The city is also the primary location of the annual Sundance Film Festival. If you love hiking, skiing and independent cinema, and can afford the real estate, Park City is for you.

5. Orem

Closing out Utah’s top five is Orem, a city in Utah County that the Huffington Post named one of the healthiest places to live in America. The city’s strong Mormon influence accounts for its’s fit, well educated, and affable residents.
