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.

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.
I have been amazed at all the outdoor, family friendly things there are to do here! There is something to go and do for everyone in the surrounding area whether you have small children, older children, no children, it's just you and your dog, just you and your significant other, or even just you! There is always something that you can go and do.
