    Health & Fitness at Murray: We live right by one of the best hospitals in the state, it is still new and it is wonderful. There are a ton of parks near my house and on a weekly basis I am with a bunch of my friends playing ultimate frisbee or soccer, I play softball with my work on a great field, and when I was younger I was able to play baseball on the third best baseball field in the state, Ken Price ballpark.

    Housing at Murray: There are a lot of different housing options. There are not many abandoned properties to think of. Because Murray is so central to everything and there isn't much land to build on the home prices are higher than they would be in other areas. There isn't really a clear definition of east v. west side houses, both sides have great homes and both have not so great homes.

    Crime & Safety at Murray: I have lived here for twenty years, and I have really never heard of any crime happening in my immediate area. But people are human, things will happen everywhere, it is part of life. That being said, the police department in Murray is great. They have helped me in multiple ways so I feel like they are a great force and are here for our community.

    Weather at Murray: It's Utah. It can be all four seasons in the same day. But I love it, the four seasons are very distinct and I love each of them for their own reasons. We have been told since I can remember that we are expecting a very large earthquake. In my lifetime I have yet to see anything of the sort, but I still know that there is a risk for it, but it would not deter me from living in my area.

    Food & Drink at Murray: My friends and I are never at odds with the average restaurants in my area. There are so many different places to choose from, quick fast food places, sit down restaurants, locally owned and operated places. We have a ton of options and we can eat some where new very often. I really enjoy the food scene here. As I do not drink alcohol I am unsure of the drink and club scene here in my area.
