About Utah

Natural Architecture

From mountain peaks packed with the Greatest Snow on Earth to magnificent red rock arches and canyons — and all the farms, towns, and urban areas in between — Utah, quite literally, has it all. Catch the Life Elevated bug — ski one of our 15 world-class resorts, or restore your soul by wandering in one of our five iconic national parks. Like Ty Burrell, Everett Ruess, Robert Redford, and Brigham Young (and 3 million more of us Utahns), you might just fall in love with the place, too.

Economic Strength

We boast some stunning natural architecture, to be certain, but that goes hand in hand with our strong business environment to make Utah one of the best place to live, work, and play. Forbes has consistently ranked Utah #1 in its annual study of the Best States for Business. Additionally, Utah has been ranked #1 for economic outlook by the American Legislative Exchange Council.
