When my family first moved here in 2014, we were instantly in love! Kids out in their yards playing jump rope, basketball, or doodling with chalk were the main reason we chose to live here. It's a very family friendly neighborhood and we love it so much! One thing I do wish would change, is the increasingly large number of renters that buy out the houses here. As much as I wish this could change this, it's life. sometimes people only need a home for a few months to a few years.

Layton, UT is safe and beautiful. It has plenty of options for food and entertainment. Layton has a Weber State building in the city. Hill Air Force Base is in Layton, so there's lots of diversity. Layton has Northridge High School and Layton High School. Layton Park has the best fireworks for July 4 too! Highly recommend. Very homey and nature filled.
I've been living in Layton, UT for over a year now, and it may be one of the best places I've ever lived. The city has a variety of reasonably priced apartments, which is why I decided to move here the first place. I'm a single woman living here alone, but I have never felt unsafe where I am. The whole city is kept in wonderful condition, and there is very little crime that I have seen. Layton is also a great place for shopping, as there is a large amount of businesses here. There is the mall, several movie theaters, dozens of high end restaurants, and just about everything else. Anything you may want to buy, can be found without stepping outside of this little town. The only major downside, I would say, is that there is always construction being done on some of the major roads, so getting around can be a bit time consuming. Otherwise, I think this is a wonderful place to live, and I have no plans of leaving anytime soon!
