1/ Jobs ( opportunities,career,economic growth) - obvious answer:Utah
2/ weather: Nevada with a slight edge
3/ Diversity ( and race relations): Nevada I'm guessing
4/ making friends: geography irrellevent IMO
5/ public transport: Salt Lake City by a very wide margin
6/Cost of living: want to by a foreclosed home? LV
7/Future: most definitely Utah
8/Food: Nevada, based on the high calibur restaurants in Las Vegas
9- Scenery: Utah with five national parks, someof eraths greatest natural wonders and amazing opportunties for skiing, hiking, and outdoor activities. Lake Powell is pretty awesome too.

Overall I would go with Utah. A more beautiful state with more economic stability. Check out this thread to see some of the new urban planning proposals that Salt Lake City is getting. For a medium sized metro, the infrastructure is most impressive with new wide freeways and an ever expanding light rail system.

Salt Lake City is getting an urban makeover other cities dream of.

You could live in ST. George( Utahs Dixie) with it's beautiful cropped red rock canyons, mild climate,close to ZION, Monuments, excellent place for mountain biking,hiking hour and half from Vegas, six hours from coastal OC,LA, San Diego. St. George is a very sunny, friendly place...not alot of bars and booze, high end shopping, nightlife, but hey less than two hours to sin city.. You have great skiing just to the north ie: Park City and you could check out Sundance.

I could see advantages to being in the Reno area as it's a stones throw from Lake Tahoe which is absolutely amazing and accessable to Northern Cali places like Sacramento and the Bay Area. However the Reno area much like Las Vegas has double digit unemployment figures. I really think it's going to take a long time for Nevada to recover from this recession. They are going to have to reinvent themselves somehow. Not to mention it's always been a very transient place, hard to put down roots.

I like them both. Utah is my preferred of the two. Gorgeous scenery throughout the entire state. Salt Lake may be dull compared to Vegas, but it's sure a lot cleaner, safer, and more attractive.

I say Utah in every category. I think Nevada extremely underrated outside of Las Vegas and Reno.
