4) Salt Lake City, Utah
Housing costs are above the national average, but luckily this doesn’t affect tourists. Salt Lake City is well below the national average in the groceries, and goods and services categories, making it a good choice for those looking for more bang for their buck. It’s true SLC has strong ties to Mormonism, but there’s plenty more to experience in Salt Lake than that. For those interested, three blocks of the city are dedicated to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at Temple Square. If that’s not your thing, visit the Great Salt Lake, the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi River. Here you can hike, picnic, boat, fish, swim, and spot local wildlife. Skiers and snowboarders surely won’t miss Park City Mountain and Deer Valley, just 35 miles southeast of SLC. Not into fresh powder? No problem. Check out the historic downtown with charming restaurants and art galleries galore.
