Moving to Utah

Written by Alyssa Howard,

The culture and aesthetics of Utah are unique in comparison to the rest of the country. The state boasts 14 alpine ski resorts, five national parks, seven national munuments and six national forests. It's also a powerful hub of Mormon culture, as it was originally settled by Mormon pioneers, who traveled across the U.S. desert to what they believed to be the Promised Land. Notable attractions include the Great Salt Lake, Rainbow Bridge and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
