What do you love? What do you hate? How crunchy friendly is it (home birth, BF in public, no-vax, homeschool, etc)?
My DH will be flying there next week for an interview, and I'm trying to research how willing I would be to live there. While I know that SLC is "only" about 50% LDS, that is still certainly a high percentage of one religion, and I know that it greatly influences the culture of the area. We are not LDS (we're actually Unitarians, and I see there are UU churches in SLC). I have a lot of respect for the LDS lifestyle, and have nothing but positive things to say about any of the Mormons I have known over the years. The idea of living in a very family focused area with lots of families with many kids really appeals to us. We have 2 littles and plan to have more. I'm a SAHM. We are very liberal politically speaking. We hardly drink at all, and would welcome a culture less focused on alcohol. I am quite a caffenine addict though . I NIP without any cover well into toddlerhood. I'm very very social, and my girls are too. I'm concerned that as a non-LDS I may be an outsider socially.
I'm also concerned about the cold, having lived in the deep south my whole life, and the air quality (though living in Houston, it may not really be that different... I need to research that...).
Any and all input welcome.
