Roughly 75% of Toole County residents commute into Salt Lake County for work, and as more people relocate to the beautiful Utah landscape, many homeowners are looking for a community that is close enough that they don’t have a long commute, while still far enough removed that they can have a healthy separation of work and home life. For many of these new homeowners, the secret to having it all lies in a new residence in Grantsville.
In addition to the terrific housing opportunities there, Grantsville is a place of great natural beauty. There’s a lot of scenic appeal to be found on the Salt Flats, the mountain ranges nearby, and the Great Salt Lake. You can spend countless days photographing the historic beauty in the old parts of town, the reservoirs, the walls of the canyons, and the tops of the mountains.
