My experiences here have been amazing! The people here are so welcoming and friendly. When I moved here and started school, students there are nice and welcoming. I joined the theatre department when I moved here. The theater kids are awesome and are like me! The director for the theatre department is a hard working man. He is by far the best director I have been with. He is kind and is there to listen to anyone wants to talk to him. Overall , Hurricane is awesome and glad I moved here.

Hurricane used to be a great small town. It is now overran by out of towners who try to change our community into the very things they left behind. There is alot more drugs and crime than there was 10 years ago. The schools are being filled with kids whose parents moved them from high crime areas to get them away, but really just brought the problems with them. Our real estate market is unrealistic, because everyone wants to move here, so it is now un-affordable to those of us who are from here. There is alot of tourism due to our location to national parks and lakes. This is great for the local tax base, and helps fund parks and youth programs.
We love living in Hurricane--it's a very friendly town with a great community feel. It is nestled right below Zion National Park, close to the sand dunes and ATV recreation areas, two lakes, and a short road trip to Las Vegas. You couldn't ask for anything more location-wise.
