Last April I had a semi-staycation with friends and went to Zions National Park for a weekend. It's been a few years since I've last been, and I was absolutely astonished at how many people were there! There were buses and buses full of tour groups from all over the world, there were times where we were at a complete standstill in traffic inside the actual park. Finding parking outside the park was a joke. Since when did Zions become Disneyworld?
I recently came across this article on Utah Business, and after my last experience in Zions, I'm not the least bit surprised. Secrets out, Utah is one stellar place to be, and from the sounds of it, it's just going to keep on growing!
"Salt Lake City—Recently, Fodor’s Travel, sometimes called the travel “bible” for its 80-year history of travel recommendations, selected Utah as its first-ever top destination in the world. Utah’s beautiful vistas, opportunities for adventure, and excellent skiing have driven the travel and tourism industry to a banner year in 2015, and industry professionals are looking forward to another great year in 2016...."
Now what does this mean for the Utah Real Estate Market? We have already been experiencing a big trend of companies from other states, and other countries choosing to move their facilities to Utah. I think this will continue to be a growing trend, which will help Utah's economy remain strong as we enter a somewhat uncertain economic future.
