"A gorgeous town with spectacular views"

Richfield, Utah is one of those small towns that lies on Interstate 70 and has everything a traveler needs. There's more than a few hotels, gas stations, and restaurants. Many of the townspeople work in these types of places as this is one of the only decent sized towns in this part of Utah. You can find gas in other places, but for the most part, Richfield is it. Although I have stayed in Richfield several times, I will never forget how it looked the first time I drove in. There are gorgeous green valleys that are just breathtaking, all with the backdrop of snow capped mountains behind. It is one of the prettiest towns I've ever been in and though about staying in for more than just a night or two. In the outer lying areas there are a lot of small farms and ranches and you can see cattle grazing and horses running about. Although the town has just over 7,500 people, it seems smaller, in a friendly, down home kind of way. The people are all very nice, and they certainly don't rush around at the speed they do in the bigger cities. There's a relaxed attitude here where it seems as if people just enjoy one day at a time.

Although the median household income here is below the average of Utah, housing prices here are lower as well. The retail industry is the most common, which isn't surprising considering how much the town caters to travelers. The crime rate here is lower than the national average, and some years much lower. The school have very mixed reviews but overall they are about average when compared to the rest of Utah. Overall, I think this would be a neat little town to live in. The people are friendly, there's a declining rate of unemployment, and some spectacular views.
