2021 July-August

The July/August issue of Salt Lake magazine features the Best of the Beehive Academy! We’re providing “students” with the essential coursework on “How to Utah.” After completing our lessons on where to eat, shop and play, you’ll be ready to sit at the cool kids’ table. (Full list of Best of the Beehive winners attached.) 

The latest issue also takes readers on the road. Even the Gem State has some hidden gems. Our Idaho road trip guide shows how to take a chance on trails through the quieter side of the Tetons and become enamored with a clever cohort of winemakers. And, it’s the story everyone is talking about. Utah housing costs are higher than ever. This issue explores why it’s good for some but bad for many, and how we got into this mess.

The issue’s Hive section prepares readers to join the tech bros on the Silicon Slopes with a helpful quiz. A Utah astrologer explains why more and more people are looking up at the stars for answers, and we take a tour of some of the best meals in Midway. Finally, what Utah state leaders are doing about the extreme drought (other than begging residents to pray for rain). 

Meanwhile, life is returning to Park City this summer. Lifts are running, golf clubs are swinging and the creativity is flowing. In the dining guide, we try the deeper than deep dish Detroit-style pizza (now available in Salt Lake City) and ask what is behind Utah’s love of the dirty soda?
