South Ogden has a well-maintained atmosphere in most places. There are very few places that have negative vibes throughout. There is culture, great food, music, learning opportunities, active social life, tours, and history everything a person needs to thrive.
There is never any crime. There are a few shady characters in the apartment complex nearby, but there has never been any trouble. The worst offense that has ever happened in the neighborhood is speeding, which sadly happens often.

An LDS church, medical clinic, athletic club, nature walk/bikeway, and two grocery stores are within walking distance. The neighbors are always very friendly, and will watch out for your house when you're away. It is within driving distance of everything in the lower Weber area, and the neighborhood is easily accessible. Though it is near to a highway, it is difficult to hear any road noise.

If I could choose any place to raise a child, it would be here. The neighborhood is friendly and safe. The schools nearby certainly aren't the best in the world, but they still do a good job. I would definitely choose to live here if I had to choose again!
