Well, you know I have lived here my whole life, and I have to say Roy has grown a lot, but with nothing all that good. This town has just thrown as much as they possibly can into it, and they still try to do more. It's way too crowded now and only continues to get worse. Also, their police force is terrible, they are never there when you need them, and I have not met a single one who acts decently in any situation. So overall, Roy is not that great, and this is the reason why I'm moving out of this state altogether.

I love how one we are as a community. For the high school football games, not only students and parents go, but people from all around the city come to support. We also have a lot of fun things around. The Hill Aerospace Museum is one that anyone can enjoy, from the plane talks to looking at and learning about airplanes, and there is even a kid's area with all sorts of fun and educational games. Another fun place we have in Roy is the Roy Aquatic Center. It is great for all those hot summer days. Roy is an awesome place for families to enjoy themselves.
I love that Roy Utah feels like a small town, without actually being one. There are privately owned burger and coffee joints that are out of this world. The fire station has phenomenal Christmas lights. There is a mall near by with an auto mall next to it. It's a quaint town with nice people. Just watch out for planes falling from the sky!
