Review Blanding
Blanding is a little town in southern Utah. It has many natural attractions mountains, canyons, and arches. Many trails to hike and beautiful red rocks. It is a very short drive from many national monuments arches, bridges and Lake Powell. It is a quiet little town where they roll up the sidewalks at 9:00. friendly people that live a slower pace life. It is a nice place to raise kids. it is a dry town you can not purchase alcohol in town. Blanding is a pitcher perfect example of small town USA. Everyone goes to the high school football games. if you like the out doors slow pace life it is the place for you.
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.
