One of Utah’s fastest growing cities, South Jordan is a great place to live. It is located in the southern part of the Salt Lake Valley, only 13 miles from the state’s capital and largest city Salt Lake City. Adjoining South Jordan is West Jordan to the North, Sandy City and the Jordan River to the East, Draper UT to the South East, Riverton on the South and Herriman to the South West. South Jordan is likely to double soon thanks to a master-planned community called Daybreak Community that will cover the western half of the city with homes for sale, shopping centers, parks, schools and job opportunities. This 4000 acre community is still under construction, but when completed the population of South Jordan Utah will increase dramatically.
