History, Geography, Homes, and State Resources of Utah

Depending on the place you are coming from and the region you plan on settling down in, relocating to Utah can be a simple sidestep in changing your residency or it can be the medium for culture shock. In any case, you’ll be locating in one of the more picturesque states in the nation and there's lots of opportunity to participate in outdoor activities. To the north, there’s plenty of skiing. South in the Canyon Country, there's opportunity for breathtaking climbing and hiking. However if native beauty isn’t your thing, there are lots of other reasons for living in Utah.

Although it’s correct that the state of Utah has the largest Morman or Latter-day Saint (LDS) population, moving here does not require you to conform or convert your life style. The LDS member percentage in Utah is around 60 percent, while just 41 percent actually claim to be active in going to church. Salt Lake City, the state capital, has a thriving LGBT membership with many LGBT-friendly establishments, giving the city a cultural oasis status which many transferees to the state are often pleasantly surprised to learn.

    Sports
    Utah is the second-least populous U.S. state to have a major professional sports league franchise, after the Las Vegas Golden Knights joined the National Hockey League in 2017. The Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association play at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City. The team moved to the city from New Orleans in 1979 and has been one of the most consistently successful teams in the league (although they have yet to win a championship). Salt Lake City was previously host to the Utah Stars, who competed in the ABA from 1970–76 and won 1 championship, and to the Utah Starzz of the WNBA from 1997 to 2003.

    Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer was founded in 2005 and play their home matches at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy. RSL remains the only Utah major league sports team to have won a national championship
