West Valley City and the greater Salt Lake City area are a very family-friendly environment and a great place to raise a family with an excellent public school system and clean, safe communities. There are a dozen ski resorts within an hours drive. Salt Lake City has four distinct seasons and all the amenities expected of larger metropolitan areas (theater, arts, collegiate and professional football) within a short drive.
