Such a lovely neighborhood! Has the charm of a suburb but the big city feel. Best of both worlds! I live near the Murray Intermountain Hospital and it is so nice having a health care unit close by. That also means there are plenty of restaurants to have a nice night out. There is also the Interstate close, giving quick access to head north to Salt Lake City. The streets also feel very homey which makes taking night walks fun! I feel completely safe and love the culture in the neighborhood. All the yards are pristine and you can tell that their is a lot of pride in the neighborhood.
Review Murray
I have lived in Murray for a little over 2 years. I have loved living here in every way! It is centrally located to the freeway, major streets, shopping areas are close by, and a good atmosphere. The reason why I gave it 4 stars is because like every city there are ups and downs. There have been a couple things that are not ideal, but living in the city they are expected. No matter what happens the city is always quick to respond. The neighborhoods are great and the community is friendly! I couldn't think about living anywhere else!
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.
