How We Determined The Largest Cities In Utah

We've been ranking and dissecting cities in the Beehive State for over 4 years now -- making this actually the fourth time we've run the numbers. We always use the best data, the US Census. In this case, that means we are using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey.

It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in Utah from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Salt Lake City.

The smallest? Benjamin, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.

Review Of Salt Lake City by HomeSnacks User

Salt Lake City, Utah is one of the most beautiful, well planned cities I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. I spent my Christmas holiday there a few years ago and was blown away by its cleanliness. I could tell that the founders of the city brought to life what they had envisioned. The streets were practically spotless and the people were incredibly nice and honest. I had actually left my expensive digital camera in the restroom on accident and didn't realize it until two kind people started chasing me down to give it to me. I was shocked, because if that had happened in my hometown, the chances of someone returning such an expensive possession would have been pretty slim. I enjoyed the bars and Temple Square, which was breathtaking with all of the Christmas lights. I am not Mormon, but I thought the place looked magical.

Temple Square with all of the beautiful buildings and Christmas lights, the high end retail stores, the bars, the nice people and the clean streets. I can't think of anything bad to say.

Review Of Orem by HomeSnacks User

I thought it was a fine town but it's really run down and since it's right next to a bustling college town, most of the people who live there are below a certain poverty level that most people are comfortable living around. There seems to be mostly commercial growth, which leaves the residential areas feeling random and it's driving the prices up but for cheap and under-maintained homes and apartments.

There's great shopping, restaurants and places for entertainment. I just definitely would never live there.
