Salt Lake City a Top 15 'Aspirational' City

Salt Lake City recognized as being a Top 15 aspirational city by The Daily Beast

'What's an aspirational city?' you might ask.  According to the Daily Beast, these are cities that attract people with aspiration.  René Descartes wrote that the best cities provide 'an inventory of the possible.'  For those who seek to improve their lives and the lives of their family, these cities may offer the most advantageous setting to do so.

So what makes a city aspirational?  The answer, according to The Daily Beast, isn't exactly rocket science.  It's simpler than you might think.  The formula is 50% Economy, 25% Quality of Life, and 25% Demographic Factors.  It is no wonder that Salt Lake City made this list (those I think it should have been placed quite a bit higher than #13).  I have long compared Salt Lake to Austin, TX, who was adorned with the #1 ranking.  Many people may think I'm nuts for suggesting a likeness between the two cities, but those who have truly experienced both will understand what I'm talking about.  The business friendliness, the variety and density of tech related businesses, the culture, the abundance of available outdoor activities, the intellect, and the nightlife (underground though it may be in Salt Lake) all add up along with many other factors to make Salt Lake City a great city to live in, work in, and thrive in.  

Plus, once you experience our version of 'bad' traffic, you won't want to drive in your own city anymore.
