While about half of the Salt Lake's population is LDS, that means the other half is not. The Salt Lake area is very diverse and accepting off all people of all faiths or no faith at all. I personally have found some of the very best people I have ever met are LDS families who are loving, kind, generous, accepting and trust me with their most important transactions in their life; and I am honored to be their friend. I am sure you will "fit in" just fine and find lots of friends who share your same interests.

How about nature hiking, nature photography, mountain trail biking, ATV's and off-roading, professional sporting events, live concerts and events, great arts and cultural events and so much more that you would expect in any big city.
That is very subjective and everyone will have their own opinion on what makes a neighborhood great.
