Logan, Utah

While the Covid pandemic has caused a downturn in most places in the United States, the City of Logan, UT, has continued to thrive and was named 2021’s second-best small city by the Milken Institute Best Performing Cities (BPC) analysis. This was one place higher than 2020, and who knows what 2022 can bring. The city has been recognized for affordable housing, job and wage growth, and high-tech growth. The stable economy is great, but Logan offers so much more, and people are flocking here.

Utah State University ranks well on many Forbes Best lists,  is one of the highest-ranking schools with lower tuitions, has one of the best online bachelor programs, and ranked as the #10 overall university by the Washington Monthly.

With so many enjoying the fine education, it’s good to know they are safe. According to Rocket Mortgage, a company with a vested interest in safe places, Logan is the #5 safest city in the country and the crime rate is 38% lower than the USA average. This is especially reassuring as so many people find their way here for outdoor activities. 

The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is 2.1 million acres of paradise that’s enjoyed year-round. Take a shot at fly fishing in the summer sun or try one of the world-famous downhill skiing venues.

For some, the slopes of the greens are more challenging than the slopes of the mountain. The Logan River Golf Course is the top-rated course in the area. This par 71 course welcomes players of all skill levels. If you’re trying to find an elite club to call your own, there is the Logan Country Club. Take in the majestic mountain sites and then try the amazing food at Hamilton’s At The Club.

As the center of the states’ creative flow, Logan has earned the nickname of Utah’s heart of the arts. Over the summer, the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre brings together the finest performers from around the country to entertain with their interpretations of classics such as Carmen, Man of La Mancha, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
