Salt Lake City was named the No. 1 “Trendiest U.S. City Where You Still Can Afford to Buy a Home,” according to a survey this month by 

The survey tracked 500 U.S. cities and looked at six areas: Number of foodie hot spots, number of bike shops, number of yoga studios, number of cultural outlets, the increase in the population of 25- to 34-year-olds, and housing affordability. 

Some of Salt Lake’s hipster areas include: The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater, a new 2,500-seat Broadway-style performance center in downtown Salt Lake City set to open in October; and the Sugar House and Liberty Park neighborhoods where small businesses and food-driven establishments locally source their food.
