Very nice area to live! Most people are quite friendly, police are very often patrolling areas to ensure safety, parks and facilities are quite nice. Very family friendly area, many great nearby public schools, some of which were just built and are brand new! Can be a bit on the expensive side to live in Draper but if you can afford it, it's a very nice place to live!

I absolutely love Draper. There is so much to do here and the mountains are so close by--they are actually part of our city! I have lived here all my life and it has been an amazing place to live. It is starting to get a little crowded here, but it is still a great place!
Draper is a wonderful town for young families. The accessibility to downtown is great from west Draper with Trax and quick freeway access. Draper is quiet at night, so nightlife isn't the draw, but parks and community centers are well maintained. There are many high-end and healthful grocery stores, as well as a variety of gym and workout spaces, making healthy lifestyle is easily maintained. There are dog parks and walking/bike paths to further encourage activity.
