Work-life balance comes naturally in Salt Lake City—residents enjoy staggering mountain vistas, unmatched outdoor recreation, and a robust arts and culture scene bolstered by a metro population of over 1 million people. When snow falls in this Winter Olympics town, beware the powder clause: professionals may jet from the office to the slopes for a few runs. Despite Utahns’ love for a powder-induced work break, our economy is one of the strongest. And Utah consistently ranks among the happiest, healthiest, most family-friendly, and most charitable states. It’s also the first state to receive three Michelin Stars due to its otherworldly landscapes.
