As you likely already know, Salt Lake City was originally formed as a haven for those looking to enjoy their way of life without the judgement of others that did not agree with their personal beliefs. Some perceive this area to be close minded because of the fact that a great deal of the inhabitants are religious, but the reality is quite different.
Here you will find a diverse community of many races, cultures and religions. Mormons do make up the majority, but part of their success is due to being accepting of others as they had wished would be granted to them. Additionally, they enjoy the finer things that life has to offer including amusement, art and culture. In Salt Lake City you will find fine art museums, night life, diverse entertainment options, historical museums and one of the most advanced space museums in the country.
Additionally, there is a great deal of beautiful nature surrounding the city to enjoy. A very short drive will take you to a National Park and of course there is the Great Salt Lake. If you have never been it is time to put this city on your bucket list.
