I've grown up here all my life and it's been such a great community. They have many service opportunities and it's a close-knit community. Many sports and club opportunities are available and there is a extensive amount of fantastic parks. Also, a very large portion of the population is religious (LDS) and they provide many service learning opportunities. It's not very diverse, but it is a growing community with many more families moving in. The vast majority of the population is conservative, while I am more liberal, but it is a very safe community with many job opportunities.

Draper is a great place! We have a lot of great and moral people in this community. This community is a place where we can speak our minds and be heard and supported. Draper is also beautiful, we have a lot of protected land and hiking or biking trails. Overall this place is a great place.
I haven't lived in Draper long. So far I really enjoy the quiet nature of the area. There is enough around, but it isn't as busy as central SLC. There are some nice restaurants in the area for special occasions and a couple of healthier spots, which I appreciate. However, though I do like the more relaxed feel of Draper, it would be nice if there were a couple more options for night life and a couple more trendier spots for dining out or spending time with friends (post covid of course). Its not too expensive considering the size of the houses; but, I also come from San Diego so my viewpoint on that may be skewed. Overall, I really like the area and plan on looking for a home here eventually (I currently rent).
