Situated in the mountains, Salt Lake City is a stunning place to continue the coliving lifestyle. With a population of 200 000, there’s a big city feel without the overwhelming part.
The main attraction in town is no doubt the lake itself - ideal for any outdoor activities - hiking, boating, and fishing are all great experiences. Swimming in the lake is truly unique because the salt makes it so easy to float.

It’s no surprise that sporty digital nomads have found coliving spaces here.
If you’re a foodie, fear not! There is no shortage of amazing bites around town. There are also plenty of great cocktail bars and cafes for remote workers who like to get out. Utah may be landlocked but the city has amazing sushi with quality fish flown in daily.
Getting around town is easy and efficient with commuter trains, busses, and light rail options. These can also get you right up to the slopes. There’s a decent infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists.
