Utah, and specifically the Salt Lake City area are becoming way more welcoming to the outsiders, while at the same time having lots of talent for hire.
The urban demographics are changing, but it is still heavily dominated by Mormon church. However, it used to be perceived as a weird place where Church has a big influence over the state, but it's changing. There are now local breweries, great coffee and restaurants...etc. The community has recognized that in order to bring new blood into the area they would need to adopt and adjust.
