    The bad part of the summer is the unbearable heat. I freaking hate it. Weeks on end of high 90's to 100+. But like the others have said, you're only minutes from the mountains with their lakes and hiking/biking trails and only a couple hours from really great "roughing it" type camping.

    No on the humidity.... and i would say that bigb has reasonable gripes about the summer heat, but i personally dont mind it..... I love summer nights in slc and like bigb said, you can beat the heat by going up in the mtns that surround us.
    St george heat is too much for me though

    What do you do (or want to do) professionally? Coming from Jersey, you're probably going to find SLC a quiet and quaint little town. It feels like a small town, even though it's spread out over 10+ miles.

    If you're heading west, you're probably better off making all the way to California, unless outdoors stuff like skiing, hiking, biking, etc. are your thing.

    The air quality from the inversion has been horrible this year, for a couple of weeks. But it's never been this bad before that I can remember in my ~9 years of living in Utah. And it depends where you live--I live in Utah County, and I'm pretty sure we don't generally get hit as hard with the inversions as the people in Salt Lake County.

    And as many people said, the outdoor activities in the spring/summer/fall are fabulous.

    I grew up in Maryland, and the heat there is FAR more unbearable than the heat here. For what it's worth.

    I went on my mission to Honduras. The day I got off the plane it was like 85 with about 80% humidity. I totally get the humid heat thing. I still hate the dry heat though too.
