What is there to not love about Hurricane? I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to move back here in 2007. The people in the community are so incredible and down to earth, such a change from keeping up with the Joneses that I had found in other communities. My daughter attended Hurricane High School and felt so at home. Our schools are the BEST! I have had all my children at Three Falls, Hurricane Intermediate, Hurricane Middle, and Hurricane High, and what a blessing the administrators, staff, and teachers have been.
My family and I love all that there is to do in Hurricane. We love going to Quail Lake and Sand Hollow, and that they are just minutes from home. My granddaughters love the splash pad just as much as my kids did when they were little. So many wonderful parks in the community, and if you haven’t been to Grandpa’s Pond, you are missing out. We have so many hiking trails, and our favorite ones are the ones that lead us to the river where we can cool off and splash around. We love all the family activities that our city has for us. Peach Days is a family favorite, as is The Business Expo. The back to school party is fun and happens to be a free family event. The Hurricane Recreation Center has monthly events, whether it is a concert or a movie in the park. We love the city pool and the diving boards. We are there several times a week as it is so close to home and the price is right. We love seeing all our friends in the community who attend with us.
I love the small-town atmosphere here in Hurricane, and the good people who are honest, caring, and have integrity. I am so grateful for all my neighbors and friends that I have made and look forward to making more in the years to come. Best of wishes and enjoy our great community.
