I would not recommend relocating to SLC. The crime is high, the cost of housing is high (especially if you have any notion of living in a decent neighborhood), the wages are low, the air quality is dangerous, and you will quickly become disenchanted by the mormon culture. It's true that some people won't let their mormon children play with non-mormon children...happened to us. We have lived here for more than 20 years, and are still made to feel like outsiders. The government is getting more and more progressive, which is a good thing. This is a Delta hub, but the cost of flying in and out of SLC is higher than most all other airports...don't believe me, all you have to do is compare airfares including and excluding SLC. Cost of gas is almost always higher here than most states eventhough we have a refinery in the heart of the valley adding to the air pollution. Save your trips to Utah for visitation...not living here.
