Murray is a great place for families. There are already a lot there and the main reason many families move to Murray is for their great schools. Murray City is very different from almost every other city in the Salt Lake area in that they have their own power station and school district. It is great however, the property value is high there as there are very few lots left in Murray. The houses are older but they give off that older vintage vibe.

It's a great place for kids. There are multiple schools within walking distance, and there are other kids in the neighborhood. Everyone around is very friendly and welcoming. The only complaint I have is the community isn't as one. There are a lot of little groups we have and next door neighbors know each other but neighbors around the block from each other don't know one another very well.

Murray has a beautiful historic section, and several family-owned businesses that are superb. There is also a beautiful park that has several community events through the year.
