Salt Lake 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 Realtor.com.  

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-old's and housing affordability.  Some of Salt Lake's hipster areas include:  The George S. and Delores Dore' 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.
