What Bert Has To Say About Salt Lake City Metro Area

Salt Lake City is the cultural capital and headquarters for the Mormon community and a self-contained, rapidly growing, cosmopolitan but tradition-oriented city. Mormon settlers originally chose the location for its isolation and favorable agricultural resources. Today it serves as a major commercial and cultural center for the large intermountain U.S. west region, and is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to crowded Pacific destinations.
