I've worked in this city for the past four years and love the atmosphere, shopping, and medical facilities that are close by. It is very family friendly with many parks and recreation either in the city or a short distance away. I am currently looking for a home in this area as it will be a closer commute for me. All major freeways are also easy access in this area. Great City!

Murray is a suburb of Salt Lake City. There are many great things about Murray. Murray citizens have great access to freeway entrances. Nothing is more than a 20 minute drive away. The mall is at a central location for those who love to shop and for those who like to stay fit the recreation center is only a five minute drive from the mall. Since Murray has great access to shops, restaurants, etc. there are also many opportunities for people to find work. I LOVE MURRAY!
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.
