Murray Reviews

We absolutely love living in Murray! After I got married a year ago, my wife and I found a nice place away from the commotion of downtown SLC. The nightlife is a little slower, and when we want a big night out we take the fifteen minute drive downtown, but other than that, it couldn't be better. It is a very family friendly environment, there are many elderly in this community, many with children. It's a beautiful little area full of cottages, within reach of all stores and errands nearby. Having lived many places, this is my overall favorite. We may settle down here.
This is a nicer part of the greater Salt Lake area. Mostly everything is well kept, except for the streets--some looked recently paved, others create a treacherous environment. The average rent for living is on the lower side, but still high enough that you know you're living in a quality part of town. If you're someone who hates school zones, then I'd find another part of town to occupy.
Murray is a great place for families. There are already a lot there and the main reason many families move to Murray is for their great schools. Murray City is very different from almost every other city in the Salt Lake area in that they have their own power station and school district. It is great however, the property value is high there as there are very few lots left in Murray. The houses are older but they give off that older vintage vibe.
