Other Utah cities making the list were Kanab (5), Richfield (39), Vernal (51), Logan (52), Heber City (54), and Cedar City (56).
The magazine considers a variety of factors in making its ratings. Basically, the choices boil down to choosing towns that are close to fishing and hunting opportunities, offer a chance to find a good-paying job and affordable housing, and have basic community amenities. All Utah cities listed also rank nine on a scale of 10 in terms of gun laws.
