I would say that pretty much all of the neighborhoods around here are family friendly. depends on what part of town you want to live in. the further away from downtown, the more family friendly!

Yes they are so friendly folks who don't live in them frequently drive through them...usually at a high rate of speed.

I live in the Ogden area and there are plenty of family friendly neighborhoods around here. In fact, most all of the young families that I know live around the Ogden area.

it's not as easy to leave as you might think with the real estate market the way it is. not just locally, but the transplants that real estate agents are desperate to get down here are having a hard time selling in NY too.

[mod] tos violation read the terms of service please [/mod] There are lots of family neighborhoods it just depends on what you are looking for. Our market has slowed down but good homes that are priced right still sell very well. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know.

Thanks so much. It seems based on googling that are a lot of nice areas to live. We are not going to buy since the job is only for 2 years.

Smile some neighborhood info

This may come a little late, but I thought I'd throw out some neighborhoods anyway.

Kirkwood @ Arrondale is a very kid-friendly neighborhood. LOTS of kids! There is a community pool. There are many others as well. Pine Valley, Laurel Ridge, Lord's Creek. Most newer neighborhoods consisting of single-family homes on the outskirts of town will be a safe bet. Avoid inner-city school districts if you have kids.

If you are able to drive thru some neighborhoods before you lease, it would be a good idea.

You really should avoid some of the apartment complexes and condos. This is a college town and you would be surrounded by many college students (not that the college students are bad or anything, but it wouldn't be as much of a family environment).
