Care to know about this state? Utah's just another lame state. It's not quite as exciting as California, New York, Florida, or Texas. Here's the story from a resident.
It's famous for a few things. Hard to believe I know. Utah is known for: Mormons of course, fry sauce, the 2002 Winter Olympics, David Archiletta, and country music group Shedaisy. Many movies are filmed in Utah. I believe high school musical was filmed here (not a fan or anything). You can find some beautiful views of desert, canyons, a few lakes, and mountains. It's hard to tear apart the seasons and in the winter it is snowy and cold; God it's cold!
Utah is just as diverse as any state; however, among this diversity 3/4 of it seems to occupy one big group. This group includes Mormons, a brainwashed religious group who believe they are the only ones who will end up in heaven and believe they are the only ones with a right to be there, and closed minded, right winged nut jobs. Dare to be different here? There are many nice people, but it's not always a very friendly state. It's full of piss assed, uptight ass holes. Wave to anyone and they'll give you the evil eye it seems.
From what I hear people who grew up in high crime areas feel safer when they move to Utah. Could that be true of any state though? Perhaps it was just the city they were in? Utahns seem to believe it's the "moral fiber" of their state. Positive reactions to outside visitors are basically like "Oh utah. Cool."
That's Utah in a nut shell.
Utah Resident: Welcome to Utah. Are you gay, different, or just not conservative?
Kermit the Frog: I think so.
Utah Resident: (pulls out a gun) Please leave you creature! Thanks and god bless.

a state with good scenary and wierd people; has many spectatcular views in the rockies and the famous salt flats of bonneville; most of the people live in a compact corridor between odgen-salt lake-provo. now the people- the most conservative in the country: basketball obsessed, skiing mormons
utah has nice moutains and crazy mormons.
Western state in the mountainous region, settled by the LDS religion (commonly known as Mormons). Stated to be some sort of black hole, for many call they always find themselves hopelessly pulled back by some mysterious force.
The weather can never decide on itself in Utah.
a state to avoid if you're black
I had a black friend drive through utah, he got pulled over 3 times crossing the state and he never speeds, he said it's like they radioed his presence when he crossed the border (true story)
A "pretty, great" state. Home to most Mormons in the USA. Utah is usually mistaken for the most closeminded state (seriously, have you been to Wyoming or Oklahoma?) NOT a diverse state, mostly caucasion mormons (but they are nice). Most of Utah's new generation is very open-minded and mostly Catholic. Utahns are usually happy, cheerful people who bring you batch after batch of brownies and cookies after you move in. Home of the '02 Winter Olympics, The Used, Fry Sauce, Arcitic Circle, Ice Berg and "The greatest snow on Earth".
If you are from Utah, you should have Utahn pride no matter what.
Utah is the 45th state settled in 1846. 65% of the state are followers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Utah is one of the worlds biggest Jello Manufacturers in the world. Utah holds a 1:4 ratio of pacific islanders, suprisingly, making it the 2nd largest home of pacific islanders, behind Hawaii.
I love looking at the scenery in Utah, while eating jello at the Luau
