Brigham Young hailed Salt Lake City as a “Kingdom of Heaven on Earth” when he founded it in 1847. Walk the streets of Utah’s capital today, and it’s hard to disagree with the Mormon leader. Not only are the sidewalks spotless—SLC earns top marks for cleanliness—but the locals are attractive, too. In the winter, they have eight nearby ski resorts at their disposal, including those of Park City, America’s favorite mountain town. During warmer months, active Salt Lakers explore the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, an ever-expanding route of biking and walking paths following the shores of the ancient Lake Bonneville.
