As with most polls, the sample and the way they weigh the various factors
determine the winners. For years Salt Lake City has Utah's highest taxes,
Utah's highest crime, Utah's highest homelessness problem, etc. Say,
are these pollsters the same pollsters that for a year predicted Hillary would
be the next president. They were wrong every day. Pollsters are just propaganda
does "best place" include most affordable???
@Utah Girl I didn't say thing one about flying bullets or car theft.
Neither did I, as you have, introduce the idea of race into the mix. Why is
every opinion based upon the color of one's skin? I just find it
interesting that there are over 240 different communities in the State of Utah
alone and there are, as you know, 50 States in the Union, so why would so many
of the top places come from just a few of the Chicago suburbs? Doesn't any
critical thinking or even just common sense alert you to probability that these
conclusions were based upon either some bias or some agenda? I also pointed out
that there were very few responses from some of the "winning areas."
Sorry if that bothered you. Also, while I have relatives living in
the Greater Avenues area of SLC, in my view that isn't the top place to
live in the State of Utah. While I agree there are some great areas in Davis
County, please realize that there are 29 counties in the State of Utah as well,
so maybe there really is some bias in the conclusions that were drawn.
These “best places to live” lists usually consist of places that
the average American can’t afford. I’d have to win the lottery to
live in the Avenues or Park City.
“Sanefan - Wellsville, UTAnybody who's lived in Cache Valley,
KNOWS it's the best place in Utah to live, maybe the whole
Country.”Shhh... we don’t want to let that secret out.
What? You’ve got to be kidding me. The best place to live is
here in Highland/Alpine!
@ toosmartforyou"The top 25 in the nation include suburbs of
Chicago, Detroit and St. Louis? With about 7 or 8 coming from the Chicago area,
one might ask "What's wrong with this picture?"Your
view of things is extremely narrow if you actually believe the suburbs of
Chicago, Detroit, and St. Louis have bullets flying and car-jackings all the
time. It would be interesting to break down those "great
neighborhoods" by racial composite.
Reading Herb’s bio helps to explain why he selected the only three
bastions of liberal groupthink in the state as the best places to live. Birds of
Sounds like Niche has some strange choices as their top places to live. I
don't think their criteria are noteworthy.
Many or most of the places on the list only require a large bucket of ducettes.
Certainly no one on retirement can live in those places unless they were very
rich before retiring.
I’m always grateful when our gem of a neighborhood stays off of these
Interesting opinion, but most in Utah would disagree.
Anybody who's lived in Cache Valley, KNOWS it's the best place in Utah
to live, maybe the whole Country.
The avenues are a nice place to live but you replace a lot of Brake pads.
To each his "home".🤗

With about 7 or 8 coming from the Chicago area, one might ask "What's
wrong with this picture?" (Especially since there were a few with about a
whopping 15 responses.)
The "Greater Avenues neighborhood," eh? Maybe, but I'm betting
the people who live in Federal Heights, or the Harvard-Yale area, or Walker
Lane, or Olympus Cove, might all disagree.
