How can it be possible to create a Best Places in Utah list, when the whole state is so spectacular? Utah has a lot going for it: plenty of kid-centric amenities, gorgeous scenery from alpine mountains to red rock and some amazing cultural opportunities. So, we won’t even pretend that this list is comprehensive.

You’ll find lots of lists online where the ranking is completely based on census numbers and other statistics. A scientific approach certainly has its merits but cold, hard numbers leave out the heart and soul of a place — the charming, lovable and even quirky things that make it a great place to live. Those are the qualities we sought out for this list.

We’ve listed the 12 Best Places to Live in Utah ALPHABETICALLY to avoid the impossible task of assigning them rankings.
