It’s no secret. Utah’s population is growing, and, to all of the newcomers, we’d like to say, “Welcome to the neighborhood!” This year’s Best of The Beehive features some of the top spots to settle down in the Beehive State—neighborhoods with that certain je ne sais quoi that make them the envy of the rest of the state. This is your guide to the best things to do, see, eat and drink in the best neighborhoods in Utah. Even locals might discover something they never knew about their ‘hood. 

Salt Lake magazine’s Road Trip series returns, taking readers along on an adventure in New Mexico. Explore Taos Ski Valley on a sky bridge suspended at 11,500 feet, raft the legendary Rio Grande and taste the fusion of Spanish and Pueblo flavors on a road trip to The Land of Enchantment.

“The Hive” documents the sure signs of summer now upon us: shave ice shacks on every corner, strange new urban art installations, packed music festivals and fairs and the urge to venture outside and sleep under the stars. “Bar Fly” heads to one of those aforementioned hip neighborhoods to check out Central Ninth’s newest watering hole, The Pearl. And, “On the Table” features some taco trucks so popular they had to find more stationary homes along with a vegan (yes, vegan) barbecue joint you have to try. 

Finally, in this issue’s “Park City Life,” writer Tony Gill digs into the bickering over development that seemingly never ends, but there’s a better way for residents to lodge their complaints (that might actually make a difference). The locals might love their trails a little too much, but some would rather blame outsiders for the crowds. And, Deer Valley Music Fest returns (but your cooler has to stay home).
