Top 10 Best Cities | SLC! Woo!

We think SLC is a swell place to live. In fact, we think it’s stellar. When you combine fantastic locals with stunning landscapes, you’ve got a recipe for true love, and we’ve fallen head over heels. (This should come as no surprise to most, as we’ve penned an immeasurable number of love letters to her across the pages of this very website.) Yes, we love Salt Lake City, and it seems that word of her wonderment is spreading. In fact, a recent article by Architectural Digest lands our salty lil’ town squarely on the list of Top 10 Best Places to Live. Yes, the story–originally reported by US News & World Report–has ranked SLC amongst cities like Boston, Austin, and Washington DC in terms of desirability, and we can’t say we blame ‘em in the least.

The report combines “Quality of Life” and “Value” scores to give an overall ranking, and makes mention of our unbeatable access to outdoor recreation, low unemployment rate, and healthy housing market–all pluses in our COLLECTIVE book. You can read the full story here, and perhaps give yourselves a hand, while you’re at it–after all, you’re part of what makes this city so damn wonderful.

*Not a local? Take note: SLC is on the up ‘n’ up. If you’re looking to invest in the land of salt, we suggest you jump sooner than later (and we just so happen to know a bunch of wicked smart realtors that can help you out).
