I love Utah. It's full of natural beauty and since I love the outdoors, this is the perfect fit for me. But since I'm not independently wealthy, I was looking for a home where I could be close to nature and my job. And for me, American Fork UT is the perfect fit.
There are so many beautiful parks and natural wonders nearby that you can go somewhere close every weekend for a year and not run out of things to do. The weather gives you the four seasons experience without burying you in a foot of snow or baking you with 100 degrees days. And I've never lived in a town where the residents were so eager to make new friends and help me get settled into my new home.
But what's also great is that there are plenty of job opportunities in the area. Everyone seems to have a small business, which means there are plenty of jobs to be had. And while there aren't any large manufacturers, there's not a better place to call home if you enjoy working with your hands.
