I kinda don't want to get rid of my plates because they are the CA vintage plates and I love my "vanity" name haha.

What you *want* to do is not of any value because what you *need* to do is license your car in Utah as soon as you settle, have job and within a certain time limit ...

You can *keep* your plate as a *souvenir* and mount it in your garage ?

I have an out of state, or rather an out of country, license plate for one of cars, and I put that on my trailer , which really does not need a plate !

Haha, yes I know. I would like to keep it, but having to pay the yearly fee from the DMV would not be worth it. I will just have to assimilate!

Well, change to a new vanity plate at least. If you see anybody driving around with plates that say, "Katzpur," be sure to wave.

A while back I came here for a lot of advice on moving to SLC. My husband and I planned a trip back in March and I wanted to write a little bit about our experience.

We are a young non LDS interracial couple from Southern California, and we felt completely at home in DT SLC. We went to a few bars that served great drinks and food. Our bartenders/servers were extremely pleasant and quick to answer all questions about the city life. We talked to as many people as we could while dining, and found everyone to be friendly and easy going. In fact, most were transplants from the east and west coast!

We even went to a non-denominational christian church and found that even the pastor was from California! What an awesome experience there. We talked about job hunts and housing, and were pleased to find people in our careers get paid very fairly with no issues finding work.
Our time around the city was great, we toured the aviary, went on a few hikes, and strolled the neighborhoods where we would be living. We went for a few apartment tours and even chose the complex we plan to rent in. We went to grocery stores, gas stations, and talked to people walking by us. We were truly, honestly amazed at how fit and cheerful people were. Where we come from, NO ONE makes eye contact, let alone helps you with a smile!

We toured DT SLC, Cottonwood Heights, Murray, Sugar House, Sandy, and a little bit of St. George on our way in and out of Utah. The only place we felt very out of place was St. George, boy we got quite a few stares! It was honestly funny, because no one was mean. They just stared! We smiled back

Overall, we are excited to move to Cottonwood Heights, we found it closest to the mountains and places we will frequent most often, and it is close to shopping and amenities. We are thrilled that even our little 6 day trip turned into one of the best vacations I have ever had. Look out SLC, here we come!
We moved from Florida 12 weeks ago and are so happy we made the move! It really is a wonderful place and it reveals itself with all of its hidden character more as time goes on. Best of luck in your move!

Congrats OP! I grew up in the Olympus Hills area along the east bench, a long, long time ago. It was an amazing place then and has only gotten better with time. I've been back to visit many times for both business and pleasure. I still love the area. FWIW, I'm white and my wife is Korean. We've never encountered anything but western hospitality and genuine friendliness in Salt Lake. If we weren't comfortably settled in our current location (Colorado Springs), I'd consider moving back in a heartbeat.

Great choice! Enjoy yourselves and your Utah experience. I have a feeling you'll find it being one of the best decisions you've ever made.

I've seen more California plates on cars in the last year or so.

The entire Wasatch Front is unfortunately now another California suburb.

Oh goodie. Maybe I'll be fortunate to run into one of the classic loaded Californians coming here with boatloads of cash from the sale of their home there in Cali wanting to buy a nice expensive home here. Then I can better afford my move OUT of this place. Plan on nice fat taxes to help pay for the burgeoning school systems needs that never end (a nice new school bond announced on the news yesterday for many millions), oh and if you like a newer vehicle to own, plan on the nice fat Utah tax on your vehicle that comes each and every year to renew your tags. Like easily several hundred dollars. Just tip of the iceberg. If you think it's so cheap to live here you are either making tons from a nice paying job or have a fat bank account with no significant end. Enjoy.......just come with an open check book

LOL well it hasn't been "years" since I've discussed any kind of plan. Just never had the actual financial plan in place to make it happen. Obviously you are one of those Cali folks who will join your counterparts re designing the makeup of the city. No surprises there. You can have it your work is already done. Gay mayor and Gay pride day, increases of your beloved gangs and drug wars. Believe me if my plan can finally get executed you'll be more in your element and I more in mine no doubt. It's all good.
