- Town in Utah
Current Resident: I grew up thirty miles away from Vernal. I attended school and had many jobs in Vernal, so I know the town well. It is an oil field town, that is how the people here are sustained. It's a farming town, where on every corner you see cows or sheep. But I also believe it is a lovable town. Those who move here as teenagers or young adults, often complain there is nothing to do. There is no bowling alley in Vernal, there is a little arcade, but I will admit we are not known for our entertaining facilities. What Vernal is known for is the beautiful scenery. The Dinosaur National Monument is located near Vernal. There are three reservoirs with beautiful hiking and there is a fantastic museum. For those who love nature and love being outdoors, people such as myself, there is a lot to do in Vernal. I think it is one of the greatest communities to be a part of. I wouldn't have asked for a better place to grow up. I love the farms and oil fields and all. I would rate this place with a 5.

- Town in Utah
Niche User: I moved to Vernal with a vacation mindset, so it took a while for the reality to seep in that this little mountain town was my new home. I have had opportunities to learn and grow, including working part time while maintaining 12 credit hours while in high school. In the community, there are many families that have lived here for generations. Even though my family is not directly related to anyone here, we have been welcomed by a few specific neighbors, and feel that we have been accepted, if not yet included in everything that is constantly happening here.
With such a separation from my family and friends out of town, I have taught myself to be hard working, honest, and independent, although I love talking to people about themselves and where they are from. I enjoy learning about people and the world around me, fore there are so many stories to tell!
