I have really enjoyed my time here in Saratoga Springs. It is growing with more young families, but more stores are headed out this way including a movie theater and bowling alley! It is very family friendly and a super safe place to live. However, even though it is growing I would like to see the city part, outside of the homes, grow a little more. There is nothing to do out here and for young individuals it can get boring. I would like there to be more things to do. It would also be nice if they can finish construction. Make a final plan. Not a plan that everyone knows will be revised 5 years later. It is expanding and the city needs to recognize that.

I've lived here for 3 years. Moved here from Texas. Saratoga Springs is beautiful, scenic and a safe place for your family to live. Crime is low. Property taxes are low. Lots of development. With the arrival of various new businesses, things are getting much better finding places to shop, eat and have fun. Now for the negative. If you aren't LDS, you will be relatively an outcast, and that applies to your children’s interactions with LDS kids. This is a large LDS community. If you're new to the area (a Utah thing), it will take a very long time before you being to develop friendships or have tight knit social circle. I've lived in Texas and even the east coast, and Utah people are quite standoffish compared to any of those locations. There are an immense number of children here, and the only adverse consequence of that, are the low number of schools to accommodate that. They are working on that.
Best city I have lived in in the US (14 and counting)
My family all feels very safe here.
First things first, the city is VERY new. Not even sure it was on the map 10 years ago. For those familiar with new cities that are growing quickly, that means lots of construction. Lots of construction. Will probably be lots of construction till 2024
Lots of parks for the kids to play in. Decent schools.
I have known people who have moved here that have problems with the 'locals'. In my experience, these people brought it on themselves. I take the 'when in Rome do as the Romans' approach. When you go to a new place, try to fit in. If you tell the locals they are a bunch of rubes, they probably wont like you.
