Within a main area of Salt Lake City, the Trax train lines are free to ride, making transportation a breeze around the city. I have found that there are plenty of interesting things to do, many which are free! The city library is amazing, and the various historical sites and museums are well curated and handicap accessible. For the most part, public walkways are well maintained and well lit. I have heard many things about community centers and clubs which cover a myriad of interests.

Huge Age discrimination towards older workers. This city also discriminates towards people who are not LDS.
