I Heart Salt Lake Contributor- Tavia McGrath

Meet Tavia, she is a contributor on I Heart Salt Lake.

How long have you lived in Utah:   All my life

Favorite local restaurant:   Long Life Vegi House

Where are your favorite places to shop in the Salt Lake Valley: The Sugarhouse shopping district

Best thing about Salt Lake/Utah:  I love Salt Lake for the diversity that you can’t find in a lot of other areas in Utah.  I realize that Salt Lake isn’t as diverse as cities in other states, but relative to other areas in Utah, it’s quite diverse.

Anything else you want to add:  We need to support our local, independent businesses now more than ever.  I’m devastated by how many of my favorite local restaurants and shops have closed recently.  My neighborhood, Sugarhouse, has always been know for it’s large selection of local, independent businesses, but lately many of those businesses have closed and been replaced by national chains.  Our local businesses need our support in this tough economy.  Buy local!
