Independence is only 50 minutes to the Salt Lake City Airport, and less than three miles to the Heber City Airport — which has Boeing 737 capacity. The town is also within two miles of a new regional hospital.
2.5 million acres of Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest begins within town, and plays host to hunting, camping, hiking, biking, snowmobiling and more. A number of nearby water resources, ranging from streams to large, multi-use reservoirs, offer all the aquatic entertainment one could dream of. Independence is a true four-season, outdoor mecca. Just a hop, skip and jump from town, the possibilities are endless!
