Looking for a jumping off point for the West, Salt Lake City and Utah? West Jordan is the place you want to start. Named after the river that runs from the Great Salt Lake to Utah Lake, West Jordan, UT is a short commute suburb of Salt Lake City with easy access to all of Utah's Gold! i.e. Music/Dance, Mormon Temple and the world renown Choir, golf and of course the Greatest Snow on Earth..
West Jordan proper is very compact. Various shopping centers are located close to the city center and are available for food, Rx, MD's, auto repair and restaurants. The Lite Rail can wisk you to the downtown areas quickly as well as to the University for plays, concerts and the greatest genealogical library in the world.. Find your Roots!
Lodging is plentiful and a short 20-25 minute drive will get you to the Airport too.
There are a few drawbacks to living in or traveling to West Jordan (Jun 2010): One word Traffic..not usually a problem, but with all the growth here.. construction is everywhere, which s l o w s everything so allow time to thread thru traffic. But once there you will love the Majestic 12,000+ foot mountains all around you.
Bring your camera the sights are to be recorded and your stay memorable!
