$0.00 for a tennis court rental is that in Salt Lake and surrounding areas, I have never once had to rent a tennis court. All outdoor courts are all open public access and you just go and play tennis. An indoor court at a fitness club would almost certainly be included in a membership fee, but if I did not have a membership it would probably cost about $8-10 to rent for an hour.

I wanted to ask if anyone could provide deeper Information.
I'm a person from Texas working my way as a waiter in 2years worth of money wanting to Live in Utah. So far I have 8,000 dollars. Any locals wanting to shine more light on me.
#Anonymous on Jun 16, 2014 :
Living just about an hour south of Salt Lake City, i.e. Lehi, Orem, Provo etc is even cheaper.
#Gabe on Oct 05, 2013 :
What about taxes?
The distribution pie chart does not include taxes. Seriously?
#Anonymous on Aug 31, 2013 :
500-650 is probably an average price for a one bedroom. However, if you are interested in living near downtown in a fairly peaceful area, look into the residential section of the city, known as The Avenues. There are many studios there for about 400; and several other apartments and houses. Avoid Glendale at all costs. It has the highest crime. Second to that, West Valley City might have cheap housing, but it also has a lot of crime. Rose Park is close to downtown, and the crime rate there is moderately high as well.
