The Best Active Town & Places to Live in Utah

Four Utah Cities Listed Among

BEST PLACES TO LIVE

Outside Magazine named Park City as the BEST ACTIVE TOWN with Farmington, Draper, and Lindon listed among Money Magazine's 50 BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN AMERICA.

Below is a list of criteria that the cities were based on:

- Economic Strength
- Job Growth
- Affordability
- Good Schools
- Divisity
- Health Care
- Strong Sense of Community

RankTownPopulationMedian home price (2012)
14 Farmington, UT 19,135 $281,047
25 Draper, UT 43,974 $292,552
29 Lindon, UT 10,846 $252,500

Farmington received praise for its close location for commuters to Salt Lake City and outdoorsy charm. The new $200 million Station Park development, with its combination of office space, housing, stores, and restaurants belies the town's small population.

Draper residents have outdoor playgrounds on all sides with access to the Jordan River Parkway to the west and Corner Canyon to the east, with opportunities for hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. The annual Arts and Crafts Festival highlighted the many community events available in the city. Draper is also the home of big employers, including the 1-800 Contacts headquarters and an eBay campus.

Lindon scored high with help from Teleperformance USA and Symantec, contributing to an unemployment rate of 4.5%, one of the lowest on the list. A growing job market and population that has doubled in the past two decade also were mentioned. Lindon came in at No. 1 on the Money Magazine list for ease of living.

Park City bested a list of cities that included Bozeman, MT; San Diego, CA; Boston, MA; Oklahoma City, OK; Spokane, WA; Greenville, SC; Honolulu, HI; Carbondale, CO and Waitsfield, VT. Last year's top spot was claimed by Richmond, Virginia.
