If you seriously consider moving to SLC, as Ibis stated, Sugarhouse area would probably be your best bet for a 20-30's male such as yourself. I think If you spent a few days here to check the place out, you'd be impressed. Outdoor activities are top notch as every one else has mentioned. If your intersted in snowboarding, Utah seriously can't be beat. My mother and father moved here for the sole purpouse of seeking the power. That said, having been lucky enough to travel around the globe, I've never found any good reasons to live anywhere else!
p.s. well, maybe germany for the autobahn and beer
