Murray Reviews

All Categories
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!
Review Murray
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.
Murray is a well kept, clean city. Public officials are aware of issues and are addressed quickly. The school district is very personal, by that I mean Murray has its own school district which makes it convenient. Public events are well organized and safe. Like fourth of July fireworks every year. The roads are maintained and clean
