15 Slow-Paced Small Towns in Utah Where Life Is Still Simple

Some Utahns have a slower-paced life than others. Imagine living in a small enough town that your kids could just walk two blocks to the local park for the baseball game. No worries about rush hour traffic and a long commute – instead you probably own your own farm, ranch or home-based business. Life in Utah’s small towns certainly has its drawbacks…but the living is much more simple.

This list includes towns with fewer than 2,500 residents. They’re listed here alphabetically.

Let’s face it – life along the Wasatch Front is busy. Rush hour traffic twice a day, long hours at work in an office building, running kids around to soccer practice, piano lessons…it’s enough to make you wish you had a much quieter, easier life, isn’t it?
