South Jordan is an incredible area. My favorite part about this community is its safety and family friendly nature. I have never once been nervous about being out alone or even about sending family members out and about by themselves. As well as being peaceful, South Jordan also provides access to good schools and infrastructure. There is rapid development in many areas of South Jordan, which throughout time has given my family and I countless stores, shopping centers, restaurants, and parks to engage with. Having the opportunity to live in South Jordan has been a tremendous blessing to me, and an unforgettable experience for my family.
South Jordan is great because it is right in the middle of everything. If you want to go to most any store it is a 15-minute drive max. The people are friendly (for the most part) and it's overall pretty. My only problem with the area is that a lot of community members are stuck-up and judge based on whether or not you are LDS. Other than that, it's amazing!
