Welcome to the Layton Area

Living in the Layton Area

Layton is a fairly conservative area where many of the community events and happenings are focused on the military faction of the population. Because of this foundation, Layton’s residents are largely very charitable and enjoy helping their neighbors.

All types of recreation are easily accessible from the Layton area. Mountains, lakes and hiking trails are all within a few minutes of this great city. Antelope Island, the largest island in the Great Salt Lake, is directly accessible to the west of Layton. The island and its endless natural beauty hosts large herds of bighorn sheep, American bison and other wild species.

Housing is a mixture of established homes and newer construction as the population has expanded rapidly in recent years.
