"The Best Area" will really depend on what you want, and what is beat for you. Are you looking to be close to a ski resort? Good schools? Out of the smog? Fast commute to somewhere? What would make it the "Best Area" for you? Once you know that, I would recommend looking at the KSL.com classifieds to see available rentals. The MLS does not allow rentals in this part of Utah. So there is no repository of all available rentals. Most private owners, and rental companies list their homes for rent on the online classifieds at KSL.com. And you can use them for free.
