I have lived in West Haven my whole life and although I do love it, my love is declining. West Haven used to be a cute, rural suburb with a low population filled with crops and farmers. Now there are so many town homes and neighborhoods, my view of the mountains is getting less and less. This is a very up and coming place to live and still very family-friendly. If you're looking for more of a rural setting I would steer clear, but if you like a nice view with a little hustle from the city, welcome!

I just moved here about 7 months ago. I love it here because I live right outside of Ogden and I live in a small country area. They are currently building homes across the street from my home but other than that the location is very amazing. there are homes that have horses on their property and I love animals so for me I feel like it's a win-win situation!
I enjoy West Haven because of the great people in this city. It is a peaceful and safe place to live and a great place to raise a family. It is not too far from Salt Lake City, but far enough away to enjoy a peaceful afternoon. It has a small, country town feel, but is not too far that you feel separated from civilization.
