Salt Lake City #2 “The 20 Best Cities in America to be Young, Broke and Single”

July 07 2013 - 10:44 am

No, that’s not a misprint: Salt Lake City ranks no. 2 on our list. It has a lot more going for it than Mormons, the first KFC franchise (1952), and a great big briny body of water. In fact, Mormons may someday soon become the minority, as the population of 190,000 is now 50 percent non-Mormon. (But sadly it’s not racially diverse, as African-Americans constitute less than 3 percent of the population.) What draws the YBS there? Mild winters and toasty summers help; it’s also one of the top places for members of the LGBT community to live, as cited by Gregory A. Kompes in his book “50 Fabulous Gay-friendly Places to Live.”
