Salt Lake County Reviews
Salt Lake County is great! I have been living in the downtown area for the past five years. There are a variety of places to eat with everything from hamburgers to Ethiopian food. You are within driving distance of many beautiful hikes. The sports scene is not the best as the only professional team is the Jazz, but there are several minor league and college teams in the area that you can go see. Recently the market rate for housing has gone up so buying and renting is getting progressively more expensive. If you are looking to buy a house here now is the time. I work closely with the schools and can you from personal experience they are great no matter where you live. There are a wide variety of k-12 educational opportunities. It is starting to get crowded here so if you are looking to move now is the time to come to Salt Lake County.
Salt Lake County is beautiful. We have everything anyone could ever ask for. Within minutes you can be skiing at world-class resorts, the Great Salt Lake, places to fish, rockhounding, mountain climbing, off-road trails for dirt bikes and ATVs. Salt Lake City has amazing restaurants, micro-breweries, and a great nightlife scene. We have beautiful libraries. We have clean streets and friendly people. If you are religious, we have many religious affiliations. We are the up-and-coming tech giant. We also have horrible air quality in the winter, our summers are very hot and dry. Our drivers are usually at the top of the worst drivers list, and our public transportation is overpriced and under achieving. Overall, Salt Lake County is a great place to live.
Salt lake county is a great place to live and raise a family. Having moved from a low income neighborhood in Los Angeles, I have found there to be many like minded folks that have made the switch from large cities. Although salt lake is considered a large city as well, it does not rival the numbers in LA. Schools are great, people are great, what's not to love!
