The Top 4 Reasons to Move to Lehi, UT

January 8, 2021

Lehi has emerged as one of the best places to live in the United States.  If you are looking for a new home, chances are you will fall in love as soon as you arrive.  Whether you have a location-independent tech job, are looking for a comfortable place to retire or simply want to live in a beautiful area, you will find that Lehi will welcome you with open arms.  Let’s take a closer look at why more and more people continue to build new homes in the Lehi area.

1. Endless Opportunities for Outdoor Fun

Lehi is perfectly situated near numerous outdoor recreational opportunities.  Even if you are not a skier or snowboarder, you will find plenty of exciting opportunities to have a blast while out and about in and near Lehi. This beautiful part of the state is positioned by American Fork Canyon, providing easy access to Timpanogos and Lone Peak for unbeatable camping and hiking opportunities.  In fact, a brand-new recreation and beach area was recently constructed by the picturesque Tibble Fork Reservoir.

If you love spending time on or by the water, you will love the fact that Lehi is within a short drive to Utah Lake. Water lovers around Lehi also enjoy easy access to the relaxing Saratoga Springs hot springs. Add in the fact that Utah’s top ski resorts are within an hour’s drive and you have all the more reason to make this area your new home.

2. A Bustling Economy

When you live in the Lehi area, you will find it easy to find the perfect balance between work and play.  This rapidly growing part of Utah is drawing interest from those looking for a new home, largely because its economy is expanding.  This scenic area has no shortage of tech jobs.  In fact, the majority of the area’s economic growth is the result of opportunities in the tech space.

Often referred to as the “Silicon Slopes”, Lehi is now home to several large tech businesses.  The heightened interest in commercial real estate has brought an abundance of high-paying jobs to the area.  Relocate here and you stand a good chance of scoring an interview with local employers including the likes of Oracle, Vivint, Microsoft and Adobe.

3. Rural Beauty Combined with Big City Opportunities

The “Buy country, sell city” mantra made popular during the Coronavirus pandemic is certainly applicable to Lehi. Surrounding areas nearby have an abundance of economic opportunity, yet it does not sacrifice rural charm for a growing economy.  Lehi provides residents with the beauty and serenity of rural spaces while also offering the job opportunities commonly found in large cities.  You can seamlessly transition from your 9 to 5 corporate job to a mountain hike, skiing the slopes, cycling the Lehi Rail Trail and countless other nature-oriented activities.

4. A Top Tier School System

If you have kids or are considering bringing a child into this world, high-quality schools are undoubtedly one of your primary concerns.  The local Alpine School District has an abundance of revered secondary and postsecondary educational institutions including more than a dozen middle schools and nearly half a dozen accredited colleges. Lehi High School is consistently ranked in the state’s top 50 high schools. Skyridge High School’s new facilities built merely four years ago are sure to exceed your youngsters’ expectations.
