Known for its breathtaking scenery and outdoor sports, Utah is one of the most beautiful states in the United States. The Beehive State offers numerous cities and towns to consider for retirement.

Here are four popular spots to retire in Utah.

1. Ogden
In 2014, Forbes magazine voted Ogden among the 25 best cities for retirees. Ogden is known for its low housing prices. As of May 2015, Ogden's median house pricewas $117,500. However, there is more to Ogden than housing costs. The city also offers some of the state's top ski resorts such as Snowbasin, Power Mountain, and Wolf Mountain, all less than 30 miles away. For the budget conscious, active retiree Ogden is the perfect place to settle down.

2. St. George
St. George is the fastest-growing city in the state. Located close to Zion Park and only a few hours away from the Grand Canyon, this city is ideal for those who love the outdoors. This also applies to those retirees who can't get enough golf. St. George has several golf courses to play, with some that overlook the red rock desert. Here, golfers can play year-round.

3. Cedar City
Cedar City is known throughout Utah as the "Festival Capital," and for anyone retiring who wants to be entertained, this is the place to be. Festivals held in Cedar City include the Utah Shakespearean Festival, Neil Simon Festival, Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire, and Cedar City Livestock Heritage Festival. In particular, the Utah Shakespeare Festival, which is held annually, is wildly popular and even won an America's Outstanding Regional Theatre Tony Award in 2000. There are also many trails to hike, and Zion and Bryce national parks are nearby.

4. Park City
For those lucky retirees who don't have to consider price, Park City is one of the most popular tourist destinations and an even more beautiful place to live full time. As a Park City citizen, Deer Valley, the Sundance Film Festival, and Olympic Park are all nearby. Park City's Main Street also offers dozens of boutiques, restaurants, and music venues, all offering entertainment and fun for all. The city is also extremely healthy and, for this reason, was voted by Outside magazine as America's best city in 2013. Biking along Lost Prospector Trail and skiing through Deer Valley are just two ways to stay fit in Park City.
