Utah Cities Make Best Places List

CNN’s Money Magazine has released its list of the 100 Best Places to Live, and three of the cities are in Utah.

  • Sandy – 23rd

  • Orem – 38th

  • Layton – 41st

    Surveyors ranked cities using quality-of-life and economic factors. Some of the categories included affordable housing, access to health care, education, crime rates, park space, cultural sites and recreational opportunities.

    Only mid-sized communities were ranked in this survey – small cities and towns were not included. The magazine also released a list of the 10 best large cities.

    All three of the Utah cities listed are located along the populous Wasatch Front. With the exception of St George, Utah’s largest communities are all located in the Wasatch Front area, which stretches from Ogden south through Provo.

    St George is often recognized as a top place to live. Most recently, it was named one of 12 Great Places You’ve Never Heard Of in the Aug/Sept issue of Mother Earth News.
