Rexburg Reviews

I absolutely love living in Rexburg. It is a college town, with the college students making up a large sum of the population. Brigham Young University-Idaho, a private LDS (Mormon) university, is the university that this town has been built around. Because of the strong Mormon culture here, the town itself is extremely safe and family friendly. The people in Rexburg are extremely kind and welcoming to all! The college also poses some issues here: there are few job opportunities, not much night life, and there are few restaurants. Overall, the excellent college, the friendly people, and the low cost of living makes all of the downfalls worth it.

Small town, big opportunities! First off, since Rexburg is a college town, there is plenty to do! All of which is date night friendly, as well as family friendly. Most of the food places are local, and delicious! Great service, reasonable pricing. Cost of living in cheap, and most apartments or homes are newer! Rexburg is expanding quickly, but the safety of a small town still exists. It's warm and inviting here, and you're able to live among a community that truly loves one another. Pretty amazing!
I have loved living in Rexburg. Everyone is so kind and there is a lot of fun stuff to do. They have everything from classic college burger stops, to bowling, to beautiful parks. Its centrally located for a lot of great hikes and sights (monkey rock, darby wind caves, civil defense caves, etc.). It is has a small town-growing feel to it. I have loved my two years living here!
