What to know about moving from L.A. to Salt Lake City

Los Angeles has the second largest population in the United States with 3.8 million people calling the city home. L.A. is a multi-cultural city with good weather all year long. But, if it’s time for a change of scenery and you’re considering a move to Salt Lake City, use this post as a guide to tell you what you need to know about the city. Also learn how U-Pack can help move your household goods to your new home. 

How does traffic compare?

L.A.’s legendary traffic issues are no secret. According to a report from traffic and GPS mapping company TomTom, drivers in Los Angeles spend nearly 44 minutes a day stuck in traffic, which totals to 170 hours a year. The company also ranked L.A. as the 12th most congested city in the world. By contrast, getting around in Salt Lake City is much easier. Drivers in Salt Lake City only spend about 20 minutes a day stuck in traffic (or 78 hours a year) and traffic typically is heavier in the evening, the report states. The company ranks Salt Lake as the 168th most congested city in the world. 

How is the weather?

Salt Lake’s weather is a bit different from L.A. While Los Angeles experiences warm weather nearly all year long, Salt Lake residents experience all four seasons. The city has long, hot, dry summers, short springs and falls, and cold winters with plenty of snow. Salt Lake averages about 60 inches of snow a year, typically from November to April. If you’re moving from L.A., get used to rain, as Salt Lake City sees about 16 inches of rainfall each year. 

What is there to do in Salt Lake?

Sure, L.A. is considered the Entertainment Capital of the World, and its residents and visitors can enjoy a variety of amenities the city offers, but there is plenty to do in Salt Lake, as well. Salt Lake has a vibrant arts and cultural scene with a thriving local music scene and plenty of museums and even Broadway and theater performances. If you’re into sports, the NBA’s Utah Jazz call the city home, and due to the snow the city gets, there are several ski resorts located around the Salt Lake City region. 

How are Salt Lake’s schools?

If you’re moving with children, Salt Lake has plenty of educational opportunities. The Salt Lake City School District has 23 primary schools, five middle schools and three high schools. There are also several private schools in the area. There are also several colleges and universities in the city, including the state’s flagship school — the University of Utah.
