Housing

While government housing is not provided, the surrounding areas provide plenty of options from single family homes to high-density apartment complexes and everything between.


Entertainment

Entertainment is everywhere in many forms. The Jazz (NBA), Real Salt Lake (MLS), The Bees (AAA MiLB), and the Grizzlies (ECHL) are a short drive away with many other professional sports teams calling the Wasatch Font their home. If sports aren’t your thing, there are 30 different venues that host concerts and shows. Are you an active person? There are 11 world-class ski resorts within an hour drive of Salt Lake City and the nearby mountains tout some of the best rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking in the country. Like to explore? Within driving distance, you can be 4x4ing in Moab, white water rafting on the Green River, or visiting our five national parks.
