Why You Should Move to Utah: The Benefits of Living in the Beehive State

April 14, 2022

If you are looking for a great place to live, work, play and raise a family, the premier Utah home builders, McArthur Homes are standing by to accommodate your every need when it comes to picking out a new home. A well-known name across the region, this company is one of the many reasons people are discovering an ideal state filled with urban culture, cosmopolitan attractions, outdoor adventure, suburban communities, great schools, a strong job market and much more. Take a look to some of the many reasons why you should consider a move to Utah.

Experience All Four Seasons in Utah

Utah is a perfect choice in regard to climate, as local residents experience all the features of the dry continental climate. You can enjoy summer warmth and reasonably cold winters. There is rather low precipitation and the temperatures usually never go in the extremes. Any cold winds are blocked by the mountains, so the average yearly temperature is reasonably mild, making Utah an excellent place to live based on its climate alone!

Access to Great Cities

The network of McArthur Homes is concentrated in the Lehi, UT area – conveniently located between Provo and Salt Lake City. Both are important regional centers of commerce and finance, and offer world-class dining, shopping and entertainment. Both cities feature warm-weather festivals such as the Utah Blues Festival in June and the Colonial Heritage Festival in July. Other attractions include the Natural History Museum of Utah, the City Creek Center in Salt Lake City as well as the Covey Center for the Arts and Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum in Provo.

There are Plenty of Outdoor Activities

People Hiking With Sunsetting

Central Utah is an adventurist’s dream come true – offering incredible hiking opportunities such as the Y Trail, Bridal Veil Falls, Provo Canyon, Rock Canyon, Provo River Parkway Trail, Utah Lake State Park, and many more. If wintertime sports are your thing, expect plenty of powder days skiing and snowboarding at Snowbird, Powder Mountain, Cherry peak and dozens more. If you prefer warmer accommodations, you can choose from a variety of natural hot spring destinations such as Meadow Hot Springs and Mystic Hot Springs. Sports fans can enjoy outdoor events at places like Salt Lake Regional Athletic Complex, Rio Tinto Stadium and Utah Olympic Park.

The Schools in Utah Are Excellent

This area of Utah is also home to several world-renowned learning institutions such as Brigham Young University in Provo, the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and Weber State University in Ogden. For toddlers, children and teens, Central Utah offers K-12 education in both public and private facilities across several well-reputed school districts. Extracurricular opportunities abound as well, with a network of museums and interactive destinations standing by to teach important things to curious, information-hungry students. These include the Museum of Ancient Life and Museum of Natural Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point and many more.

Utah Has Amazing Job Opportunities

People Working on Laptops and Phones

Utah is well-known for having a booming economy with plenty of opportunities for people of all interests. The job market is defined by a large civilian labor force, rising job growth and low unemployment. Growing market sectors include construction, manufacturing, tech, agriculture, financial services, education, health services, leisure and hospitality, government and more. Entrepreneurs will find bustling marketplaces in urban and suburban settings while job seekers will find plenty of open positions in the public and private sectors.
