Overview of Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City's location-in a valley between the Wasatch and Oquirrh mountains-makes for spectacular views. It also allows residents easy access to a veritable wonderland of outdoor activity ranging from snow boarding to birding. That's not to say the city isn't full of it's own attractions, however. Beyond being home to the Mormon Church, it's also well known for its community spirit and western welcome. Rent a Salt Lake City apartment and you'll likely be pleasantly surprised at how creative, active, and multicultural this metropolis is.
Living in Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City was born as a Mormon city. In 1847, Brigham Young and other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints migrated to this part of Utah. Almost immediately, other parties travelling west found the city a perfect place to stop along the route. Many of those migrants became converts and decided to stay, expanding Salt Lake City and the Church. In 1870, the railroad came through and that meant more non-Mormons settling in SLC. Today, not even half of the city's residents are members of the Church.
If Salt Lake City is new to you, take a spin through town to get your bearings. Downtown is the business center of Salt Lake and it's also where you'll find the core of the Latter-day Saints church. Central City, on the other hand, is where many residents hang their hats. Sugar House is good for shopping, Federal Heights gets pricey, and University is where you'll find the expansive U of Utah.
Work & Study in Salt Lake City
If you're coming to Salt Lake City in search of work, the big industries in town are government, trade, transportation, utilities, and professional and business services. Delta Air Lines operates their western U.S. hub from this city, and they employ a lot of area residents. Other major firms here include Huntsman Corporation, Intermountain Health Care, and Sinclair Oil Corporation.
For post-secondary students, there are a handful of education options available in Salt Lake City. The University of Utah heads the list, but there's also Westminster College, Salt Lake Community College, Stevens-Henager Collage, and others.
Cost of Living in Salt Lake City
The average two-bedroom Salt Lake City apartment rents for $917 a month. In general, you'll find the cost of living in town to be about the norm for the United States. If you're looking for a place to rent, finding one shouldn't prove too difficult. Around eight percent of residential property in Salt Lake City remains vacant at any given time.
Salt Lake City Attractions & Entertainment
Salt Lake City's prime man-made attraction is Temple Square. There are close to 20 different Latter-day Saint sites in the three-block plaza and you can get a free tour from docents. If you show up on Sunday morning, you can ever hear the renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir raise their voices to the heavens. The Utah Museum of Fine Arts also does an excellent job of honoring the achievements of men and women.
If, like many local residents, you'd rather glory in nature, there's Red Butte Garden, Wasatch National Forest, the Great Salt Lake, and Liberty Park close at hand. For a winter wonderland, head to nearby resorts like Snowbird, Solitude, or Brighton or take a tour around Utah Olympic Park. This part of the country offers some of the best skiing in the United States. If you'd rather watch others exercise on your behalf, try to get tickets to watch the Utah Jazz play basketball.
Salt Lake City Special Events
Living in SLC has its own distinct aesthetic. Part of that is the influence of the Mormon Church, but just as much comes from the looming mountains and what Salt Lake calls "the Greatest Snow on Earth." Hit the slopes come ski season to experience that for yourself. Special events in town appeal to wide audiences, regardless of background. Pioneer Day, on July 24th, marks the anniversary of Brigham Young's arrival in the Salt Lake Valley. It's a state holiday and the festivities go on for a week. There's also the Greek Festival and the Utah Arts Festival. Some portions of the Sundance Film Festival are held in Salt Lake City as well.
