What Florence was to the Renaissance, Salt Lake City is to ... whatever this is.
A San Mateo, Calif.-based online real estate brokerage has determined that among mid-size cities, Salt Lake is the most fertile ground for creativity.
Based on numbers Grigson found on Yelp, Salt Lake City ranks No. 2 in art stores, music stores, galleries, book stores and colleges/universities. We’re No. 3 in performing arts and No. 8 in art schools — averaging out to third place for each category.
Nipping at SLC’s heels in second was Pasadena, Calif., which had a category average of 3.4. There’s a big dropoff to second place, however, with Richmond, Va., averaging ninth place.
