Salt Lake City has been named the 10th best place to live in the nation in a new ranking by U.S. News & World Report — but it may not be the place you have in mind.
Defined as an area that includes Ogden and Provo, Salt Lake City rose 17 spots from last year’s ranking of No. 27, out of the 100 largest metro areas in the country. The report noted that residents flow and commute between all three areas to live and work.
But the low housing prices cited as one reason for Salt Lake City’s rise would likely come as a surprise to anyone who has recently tried to buy a home in the state’s capital city.
