Spanish Fork has always been a beautiful and great place to live! Unfortunately, the city has grown tremendously within the last few years, but greatfully it hasn't been too bad! Everyone is still very kind, generous, and thoughtful! Overall it's a very safe city, with low crime rates. Occassionally there will be car break-ins, tho, so be careful with that! This city is extremley family friendly, and there is places of residency for all incomes!

Spanish Fork is one of the best places in Utah. It is a safe community, spread out enough to give you a yard, but close enough you have the tight community feel. It is currently growing like crazy, new houses are still reasonably priced because it is considered a "smaller" town in Utah. The growth is providing many new job opportunites, there is a new hospital being built along with many new shopping centers. Everything "in town" meaning stores, offices, resutrants are close to each other allowing you to get from on end to the other in about 15 mins. Traffic is light. It is just 1hour south of Salt Lake City.
This is a wonderful growing town! This is a family-based community and is known for its amazing fiesta days every year! With this growing community, you'll have practically all your needs! Shopping, food, activity, movies, medical facilities, you name it and Spanish Fork is likely to have it!
