Would you long time locals give a heads up re living in bountiful versus south jordan. Which do you think is a better place to live? Environment, schools etc.

I only lived in Bountiful for a couple of years and liked it just fine. Can't tell you about the schools, my kids went to St. Olafs which I believe is a great school. The worst part of living there was trying to get up the hills in a snow storm. The city was very good about plowing but during a storm I some times had to go out of my way to try to get home. The other bad part is commuting into slc as there are only 3 routes - I 15, Beck St. or Redwood Rd.- so an accident on 15 between you and slc creates a mess. It is definely better to commute from Bountiful than Farmington. Very few newer neighborhoods in Bountiful because it is surrounded by other cities and the mountains. The further up you go, the newer and more $. Never lived in south jordan but it is and has been growing like crazy for the last number of years. The jordan school district has a good reputation but you will find crowding in all schools along the wasatch front. No hills to content with in comparison to bountiful however. The commute into slc will be longer than from btfl but with a lot more choices. I think bountiful is nicer. There is a real downtown rather than a collection of stores here and there although bountiful also has stores here and there :-). Sorry so. jordan but you are just another indistinguishable suburb compared to bountiful!
