    It's a good place to raise your kids until they're about nine or ten, then a move would be suitable. People will only like you if you have a certain last name, other than that nobody cares. It's also full of a bunch of has-beens who are too scared to move on with their lives. They end up working at the grocery store or local restaurant and live with their parents.
    Its really beautiful. There isn't smog or anything like that.
    If you don't have a college education than there is not very much job opurtunities in Blanding for people.
