Cottonwood Heights Reviews
I've grown up here my whole life, but am absolutely and completely frustrated with the big business mentality of my little suburb. We have the potential to be an incredible place, especially since we are at the base of one of the most visitor-attractive places, Big Cottonwood Canyon! Instead of building large buildings in our backyards, I would love to see development towards a more picturesque suburb with local businesses and restaurants flooding the scene.
It's nice and established, especially for being a relatively new city, but because it's a nice city, it attracts a lot of parents who are stuck up. It also has a relatively conservative demographic, which, for some, could be a little off-putting. Generally, though, it is a great place to raise a family. There's a lot to do. It's right next to the city, but also a five-minute drive to the mountains. The schools are very nice and only keep improving. There are a lot of parks and open green areas. The majority of the demographics here are Caucasian people. It's alright.
I moved to Cottonwood Heights when I was eight years old. I really like that Cottonwood Heights is a somewhat smaller town in the middle of Salt Lake City. Pretty much everything is about a 20 minute or less of a drive from home. There are plenty of restaurants, stores, and other activities nearby. Cottonwood Heights itself does not have much traffic, and I loved being so close to the city without having to deal with all the people.
