Kearns Reviews

Write a review about Kearns Tell people what you like or don't like about Kearns…
Kearns: A Small Utah City 3.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 14, 2018) I've been living in Kearns for a couple years now, and so far it's been a good place to live. It's close to Salt Lake City but other than that it's a bit lacking on amenities. Getting around the city isn't easy unless you have your own car, so don't rely on the limited public tra ...Read More nsportation system.

The cost of living in Kearns seems low, which overall isn't a bad thing. However, the crime rate in Kearns can be just a bit on the high side. Also, the job market isn't the strongest so if you're moving to the area, make sure you have a job lined up beforehand.

Overall, living in Kearns isn't bad if you don't mind an almost country-like vibe. One of the best areas in the city is the mountain range on the east side of the city, which is gorgeous to visit. However, you may need to drive around the city a bit to do your shopping or find a nice restaurant. Read Less
