I am moving from my crazy life in CA, but i can't decide to move to Utah or Colorado.I have never been to either state, nor do i know alot about them besides the stuff i get from google searching them. I need some personal opinions. I have no idea what cities are nice and what cities to stay clear from. I feel like i need a change in my life. i want to experience the seasons (specially the snow ) but also want the heat of summer. i want the beautiful views, the hiking, the biking, nice neighborhoods. i don't want the crazy population as CA but also want to be near things like malls and grocery stores. I kinda just want the relaxing environment where i can walk outside and just take a breath of fresh air. . . hahaha i guess i want it all. . .is there such a place? please help. any advice or comments would be wonderful!

We just moved from So Cal to Utah last week. I have done a ton of research for years and from an economic standpoint Utah wins out. We moved to the burbs of Salt Lake, specifically the daybreak community of South Jordan. www.daybreakutah.com It is an amazing place, yesterday we walked a few blocks to the lake for some fishing and row boating. There are trails and open space all around, plus the mountain trails are just a few miles away.

I am looking forward to the snow, at 4200 feet we will get a bunch but I doubt as much as places like Denver.

Another great thing is we are about the same distance (give or take a couple hours) to So Cal, San Fran, Seattle, Phoenix, Denver and Albuquerque to name a few.

It has the convenience of the city with all of the shopping etc. yet you don't have the L.A. crowded feeling.

Feel free to contact me for more info.

Utah has by far much better hiking. The mountains are much, much closer to town than Colorado is. The skiing is by far better than Colorado and folks are nicer here. The winters are not nearly as harsh and if you have no problem with some of the pretentious mormons than you should come to Utah. It really is beautiful and so much to do, if you are outdoorsy. Note: There are areas of town that are less mormon than others.

The folks on the Utah forum are certainly nicer and more helpful, and less discouraging, than they are in the Colorado forum. It's quite noticeable.

You would hate Utah. It is soooo terrible here. Oh man... if only I could live in the joyous land of Colorado were everything is perfect, happy and harmonious, instead of the horrible, violent, dirty and closed up, left for dead land of Utah. It would be an easy choice for me.



(hey, if it works on the Colorado forum than maybe it will work here )

That's OK, reps are nothing but a superficial and arbitrary system of determining who's posted the most witty smart ass comments anyway.
