I love Centerville! It's very safe and a great place to raise a family.

It's very close to several fun mountain hikes and has several very cool parks. Beyond that it has just about every good restaurant there is! Chick-fil-A, In-n-Out, Arby's, Jimmy Johns, Little Ceasers, Dominos, and very tasty sushi, Chinese, and Mexican!

Best of all is that everything is in very close proximity. I highly recommend Centerville, UT!

Centerville is in one of the fastest growing regions in the Nation, but still has the small town feel to it. I have lived in Centerville for 20 years of my life and I truly have loved every minute of it. The views of the Great Salt Lake are amazing from the mountain side. There are all kinds of hikes, gun ranges, recreational parks, and lots of food chainsThere is no trash on the streets or highway, no graffiti everything is neat and clean.
I think that one thing I would love to see change in Centerville is less or more efficient road construction. I know that Utah is known for its continuous construction, but in Centerville they take so long to complete road projects. I know that is a first world problem but with modern day technology and the machinery that we have, projects should go more smoothly and quicker. Other than that I really would not change a thing.
I have lived in Centerville my entire life and I have loved it there. The people are very kind there. It is also at the base of some mountains, so there is plenty of hiking and biking trails and other outdoor activities. There are several elementary schools in Centerville, and 1 Jr. High School; however, the closest high school is Viewmont High School which is on the boarder of Centerville and Bountiful. There are also plenty of beautiful parks with basketball, tennis, and racquetball courts. There are plenty of fun activities to do in the summer and in the winter. In the winter, Centerville gets a lot of snow which makes sledding and skiing fun activities to do when it's cold outside.
