Riverton has a great spirit about it. The people are amazing, so nice, generous and loving. There are so many things to get involved to really become a part of the community. Riverton High School is also one of the best schools in Utah. Over the years they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to donate to charity and the loving spirit that fills the air during that time is incredible. Overall Riverton is a very loving, welcoming and friendly environment to live in.

I love the atmosphere people love to hang out and the community it so strong! It's a great area for kids to go out and play on the many playgrounds. Riverton's water is also amazing! Compared to Herriman's water Riverton's is 100/10 like move here just for the water I'm not kidding! In Riverton your very close to the city but a stroke away from the mountains too! You can always find people on the community walkways being active and healthy. The people rally together to help others and your never left with out a friend. Riverton is a great place to live if you have a large or small family old or young kids!
Riverton City is a fantastic place to live and be associated with. Living in an affordable place like Riverton allows you to become very involved with your community and brings about incredible opportunities to help others in similar situations that you may be experiencing yourself. Something that I do wish would change about Riverton is its lack of support of local businesses and companies. However, overall Riverton is a fantastic, affordable place to live, with incredible opportunities for anybody of any age or background.
