I have lived in West Jordan, Ut for almost all of my life and I have loved every second of it! You're never too far from anything your looking for whether that's food, shopping, hiking, swimming, etc. There isn't much night life in West Jordan but a 20 minute ride on the freeway will get you to downtown Salt Lake City where most of the night life you're looking for is located. The culture in Utah is conservative due to the majority of LDS followers but there is also a counter culture that can easily be found. West Jordan is very family friendly and a great place to raise kids. There are a variety of schools public or private and there is even a community college campus if you're looking for further education. West Jordan is expanding every day so whether your looking for a apartment or house you'll have an easy time finding somewhere that fits you just right. Overall I believe West Jordan is a beautiful place to live if you're looking for that family suburb life.

The community here is super nice - everyone is very friendly and very outgoing! And there are more people and businesses moving in because of all the new building and schools being built here, so there are new families to meet and new places to go to.
Have great neighbors! Bruce’s Smiths and Jordan Landing! All my family lives here! The Rodeo, All Sports, Great High Schools, Parks, and Police Department! Don’t like all the traffic And it’s becoming over-crowded.
