Hey, my family is moving to Layton in Nov. Their all LDS, but me. I'm catholic. I'm 18, and was wondering what the area is like? Is there much of a crime scene there? What are the wages like there? I might get a job to save up some money before collage, so whats the minimum wage there? All I know about Layton, is Hill AFB is there(I'm going to live practically next door). Honestly, I dont know anything about Utah. Is the snow horrible? Any shooting ranges around? Does it have a small town type scene? It doesn't look very big. Would a bike be decent for transportation to get to work? Any general info is much appreciated. I myself won't be there long, but my family is staying, and I just want to know a little about the area. How far is it from SLC? Are there any decent jobs in Layton? Thanks

GSX0r, welcome to the a Layton area. (I live in clearfield, but Layton is just 5 houses away.) Just to answer some of your questions, SLC is about 25 miles from Layton. I don't think the winters are to bad here. It gets a little cold and snowy from time to time, but it is pretty tolerable. I think a bike is ok transportation, with the exception of winter (to cold and icy). Right now there are alot of "now hiring" signs up. What type of job are you looking for? McDonalds on Antelope, Walmart on hill field rd., Arby's on main st, and Kohl's on main st. are hiring. There is also the free port center in Clearfield. Companys like lifetime and lofthouse always have production jobs available. Smiths has a huge processing wearhouse in Layton and seem to be hiring alot. The wage will vary depending on the type of job, but I would guess it would be somewhere between $6.00 - $10.00/hr, maybe more. I think Layton feels like a smaller town, but I moved hear from a city of 330,000 people. Of course 60,000 feels like a small town. I think it kind of depends on where you are coming from. There is a mall and all the regular shopping and restaurants you would find in any average city. Clearfield has a great aquatic center (not far from the south entrance of the base), with basket ball courts and weight rooms as well as 2 huge indoor pools and giant slide. Of course there is crime, but I don't think it is to bad. In my neighborhood we have had several (about 9) break-ins (over 2 months) due to people leaving their garage doors open. The police caught the guys a couple of weeks ago. Again how you look at the crime depends on where you are coming from. (It's not bad compared to where I moved from.)
Well there is a bit of information for you to think about. If I can answer any questions let me know!

Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate it. I think I'll be somewhere on Antelope. I'm from Vegas, so the crime shouldn't be nearly as bad as I've been used to.
Much Gratitude.
