Our Origin Story

A woman who lived in Salt Lake City met a man who had lived in Utah for just six months. They never ran out of things to talk about as she introduced him to Utah’s adventures, events, and towns. That is how the Utah Mag was born! Our two co-founders grew their writers’ team until our blog was destination number one for people moving out West. Below are just a few of our favorite topics to cover.


We will post inspiring personal stories, informative articles, and area-specific updates on all things Utah. You’ll soon feel right at home reading riveting accounts of the adventures waiting for you in your backyard.
