Everywhere you go in Bountiful, you will run into a long time friend. There is a high sense of community and neighbors are very friendly and helpful to each other. It is not uncommon to see the local high school football stadium full of supporting fans. To see a neighbor raking, or shoveling someone else's driveway, or bringing a dinner to a family that just had a baby is a regular thing. The summertime is an excellent time for community events, lots of 5K's, fireworks, parades, carnivals and breakfasts are held at the local park. People tend to live in Bountiful for a long time, because it really is such a happy place to be!

Bountiful is a great place to live--the mountains are beautiful, the neighborhoods are safe, we have all four seasons, and there are lots of families. And I mean a lot of families. There are almost 2 dozen K-12 schools, and Bountiful is right in between both City Creek in Salt Lake, and Station Park in Farmington. This makes it easy to go out with friends and family on weekends, but it's far enough away that the city itself feels like one big neighborhood. Main street also has fun shops, and there are plenty of places to go on nature hikes, bike and run--the views from Bountiful Boulevard are particularly beautiful. We have various parks scattered around the city, as well as swimming pools and tennis/basketball courts. In the wintertime, people are outside sledding and enjoying the snow, or taking a drive up to Park City to ski/snowboard. Overall, Bountiful is simply beautiful and always family-friendly.

I've lived in this area my entire life. I like the people of Bountiful more than the people of Centerville (where I really grew up) because they are more accepting and open-minded. You wouldn't think that two fairly small cities right next to each other would be very different as far as the general "culture", but believe me, they are. What I do not like is that over the 31 years that I have lived in this area it has changed dramatically. We used to have LOTS of open space but now every inch seems packed with restaurants, stores, etc. All the excess makes me sad. I long for the days when this area was much less developed and there was room to breath.
