The general atmosphere here is great. I love living here, especially during Peach Days, that's when it gets fun! Located about a block and a half from the local high school, so it's easy just to walk there, and a block from both the Natatorium and the local parks, Watkins and Pioneer. Weather can be flexible and the neighbor involvement with each other could improve.

It's a small town where many people either know you or know your family in some way. That can be a positive or a negative. While some businesses have been recently opening up, others have not been blessed in their upkeep. There are some lovely people, but many have moved to Perry (which is directly south), where houses are bigger and newer. Gladly, they are still in the school district. The people of Brigham City are generally appreciative of the arts. There are many performing groups for children, and the high school has the best choir and theater programs in the state of Utah. There is not much there for entertainment or shopping, but Logan and North Ogden are only 20-30 minutes drive in either direction. It was nice growing up there, but I'm think I would personally prefer living someplace a little more diverse and close to entertainment and shops. However, once I start a family of my own, my ideas might change.

It's a wonderful town with great people that wants everyone to get involved! It's a very religious town but very welcoming to people of different cultures and religions.
