Hi! I am planning on moving to Logan to go to USU in October 2014. I've been searching a lot on google maps but it's hard to tell, which is the best area of Logan (or neighboring towns) to live in based on my interests? I will be moving with my husband and dog from CLT NC, very sick of city life, grew up in rural ME so winter/"nothing to do"/and all the other things that people find unbearable about living in the country won't be an issue for me.

Would all you nice people mind informing me which area sounds best for me? Please describe any area that is NOT a good area to live in (i.e. I would never send anyone to N. Charlotte to live no offense people). Some of the names I was looking at for example are Hyde Park, Benson, N.Logan, River Heights, Providence, Nibley, Milville...

I really want to be in an area that is beautiful and surrounded by as much green grassy land as possible (not close/cookie-cutter development suburb type housing). That great Utah pioneer/wilderness feel as close as I can get.

Paradise looks absolutely ideal for my interests but it seems it might be hard to find rental homes there and maybe the commute would be too long especially in the winter months.

Must be within 20 mins of USU and a Great Harvest Bakery (downtown Logan)

We would prefer to rent a small house, 2br, less than 875/mo range. An apt. is our last option.

We are a Christian, Non-LDS family.

Honestly anywhere in Cache Valley is nice and safe. It's actually rated the safest metro in America (or top 3) every single year. You could live inner-city or downtown and find it pretty pleasant. Lots of charming older houses.

The city of Logan is going to be the most diverse, with the areas around USU the most diverse of the city.

Also, nearly every city in Cache Valley will be within 20 minutes of USU. You really can't go wrong. I always recommend living in the actual city though. You'll be close to everything as the suburbs have almost no retail/commercial options.

I think East Logan is really nice, closer to the canyon. It is literally a 7 minute drive to get up to great fishing and hiking from east logan. There is a nice mix of older, newer, and homes that are around 15 years old.

It is true, anywhere in Cache valley is safe, but if you are going to be at Utah State, east logan would be a great fit for you.

Logan is such a small little town everything is pretty much a 10-15 minute drive to where you are going and one of the safest places I have ever been, folks leave expensive items in the back of pick up trucks without any worry of being ripped off. It is a great little town!
