There's a lot of apartments / condos, etc. in Provo and Orem. And though it's not as urban as SLC, it's not that much smaller either. Higher LDS population, but you'll find a lot of non-lds in the area. There's over 200,000 people combined with Provo and Orem. And hey, when someone else is considering moving into the area but is scared of having no non-lds friends, you can let them know you're there. There's a lot of people moving into the area because of the many companies in Utah County, so trust me, you're not alone.

The 88% figure was taken in 2000. One of the latest articles has it at 76% - http://www.allbusiness.com/society-social-assistance-lifestyle/religion-spirituality/13501684-1.html (broken link)

So let's see that means 25% of the 550,000 people of Utah County are non-lds. That's about 135,000 people you can possibly have a beer with after work Plus there's many LDS people who are inactive and drink as well.

Other than that you could try the Draper, South Jordan, Sandy area. Suburbs but perhaps a bit less LDS. There will be a commuter rail from SLC to Provo within the next few years.

I live in Springville and including my family, there are only 5 active LDS families on my entire block, and my block is a big block. I think sometimes people have inaccurate ideas of what Utah Valley is really like. I know plenty of my neighbors drink, I don't think you'll be shunned. I think clubs might be a bit harder to find down here, but you have to decide if you'd rather to commute to work every day or commute to clubs on the weekend....

I actually found an apartment in Orem. It's in a complex called Legacy apartments. It was very inexpensive and seems rather clean from the pictures. And the woman that I spoke with was very nice and down to earth.
