This does not surprise me at all. I originally moved to Utah in 1991 and raised
my children here. We moved away in 2000, and regretted it. After going to
college in the mid-west, our children already grown and now have grandchildren,
my family and I moved back to Utah, where I'm finishing up on a Masters
degree and will start on a doctorate in February of 2014. I won't leave
here again under my own power. I did not grow up here, but Utah became very
quickly my home and I consider it my home state. There are good people here,
good values and a strong sense of community all over. That is what brought us
here the first time and brought us back in 2011.
Amen, RockOn! Amen!
Born in California,then moved with my USAF Colonel father to Germany, England,
Ohio, Nebraska, Arizona, back to Cali twice for extended stays, and Virginia. My
wife and I moved to Utah by choice. Love it here except for Jan and Feb -- too
cold and too much snow, but we try to hit Cali in those months. Love the people,
clean air, and our business enjoys the friendly business climate. Glad they
singled out Farmington, Draper, and Linden but the same can be said for Payson
to Lehi, and parts of SL valley, and northward to the beautiful valley of Cache.
Online papers will resist putting lists all in one page because the more clicks
(impressions) they get the higher the site rating and the more they can charge
for advertising. High traffic sites can charge for "impressions" while
low traffic sites mostly only get paid for click-thru's or actual
purchases.Part of the cost of "free" online news.
Wow...It is so extremely difficult to click on 1 link and look at the list. Who
knows you may be interested in more than just Utah towns on the list.
Kudos to Silly Rabbit! I am tired of clicking through lists of names, etc. to
get the information hinted at in the article. I am not impressed with teaser
articles in a newspaper that claims it wants to be taken seriously. This
behavior is better left to TV or Radio that teases you to stay tuned so they can
keep an audience through commercials.Is anybody in the editor's
I agree with Rabbit. To have to go into the listing to see what the three
cities are is ridiculous. Please stop making us go through 10-50 pages of
lists. Just put it in an article!
I lived in Massachusetts for 17 years and was surprised but pleased to see so
many New England towns on the list. I don;t know how those towns would be for
retires, but I really enjoyed my time there.
Wish i didn't live so far away from so many of the greatest people in the
world! emoticon for frown
Thank you SillyRabbit. There was no way I was clicking through FIFTY pages to
see the names of 3 cities.
The answers not provided in the article, but merely linked to in order to get
you to visit the other website or that ridiculous DN click through list are:1. Farmington #14, 19K residents, $281K median home price (2012)2.
Draper #25, 44K residents, $292K median home price3. Lindon #29, 11K
residents, $252K median home priceAlso, DN, can we just get lists on
1 page ever again?Sincerly, this is SillyRabbit
Having lived in Farmington for over twenty years I can attest to the fact that
it is a pretty great place to be. Not only does it have a lovely old fashioned
downtown area, and the gorgeous Wasatch Mountains, but some of the best people
in the whole world. Driving along Highway 89 many many years ago I saw
Farmington and told my parents I wanted to live there someday. A dream come
