I love Bountiful because although it is small, it is close to the bigger city Salt Lake and it has all the shopping and restaurants within 15 minutes. I has beautiful views. It is very mountainous with lots of hiking trails, biking trails, and parks. The only thing I would complain about Bountiful is the fact that it is so close it almost feels like a bubble. I grew up in Bountiful and at times I felt like it was too close of a community. Not that this is always a bad things, but I felt like everyone kinda knew everything about everyone. Overall, I love Bountiful and would live there my whole life if I could!

Bountiful City is large. I have lived in Bountiful my entire life and I love it here. I love the community, the great schools I attended, and the with the public transportation developing, it's easy to get anywhere! Bountiful has beautiful mountain views, wonderful public parks, and all the entertainment needed for any lifestyle. Being so close to Salt Lake City, it is the perfect city to live in and commute to work. Winter can be hard with the amount of snowfall, but Spring and Summer are very pleasant. Fall is my favorite season in Bountiful because of the cool temperatures, beautiful Fall leaves, and closeness to National Parks that are filled with fun trails and sights. Bountiful is great!
I have lived in Bountiful the majority of my life, although I have also spent time abroad and living in the Southern United States as well. Although I have loved my experiences living in other places and immersing myself in other cultures, Bountiful feels like home. The mountains provide opportunities to adventure and appreciate nature, and Main Street Bountiful is a charming, historical site. Overall, it is a pleasant, safe, and pretty place to live, and is only a short drive away from all the draws of downtown Salt Lake City.
