Hailey is a very welcoming environment. It is both safe and very family friendly. You can find activities such as skiing, hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities very common. Multiple events are free to students (sun valley writers conference, Alturus women institute, and author talks). Along with events for the community including yoga, trailing of the sheep, wagon days, tennis facilities and so many more. Everyone knows everyone making a friendly environment where you can't go to the grocery store without seeing someone you know. I am very fortunate to have grown up somewhere that has provided me with multiple opportunities to help shape me. Some include scholarships for dance, tennis, internships, meeting authors, and so many more. In reality I would like to make my community more environmetally aware and fix our recycling issues. But I am currently working on combating that very problem.

Perfect mountain town for people who love the outdoors and not too many people, but still want a great cultural environment, great businesses, restaurants, schools, etc. There is a great community spirit here and a lot of fascinating America old-west history. My grandma was born and raised here and never stopped loving it. It is just a beautiful valley during every season.
Small town, Everyone knows everyone, beautiful scenery, long winters, but Great place. Would recommend to anyone as a place to live.
