    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 peddlers.

    @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, UT
    Anybody 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 a feather?

    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 lists. Haha.

    Interesting opinion, but most in Utah would disagree.

    The avenues are a nice place to live but you replace a lot of Brake pads.

    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.
