Draper is beautiful and clean with great views of the mountains. It has been a safe place to live, but property crimes are increasing. Some neighborhoods are comprised entirely of families with many young children, very little diversity for someone who is older. The summers are hot and the winters are cold. If you like fireworks, this is the place for you, as the state permits fireworks 8 days out of 31 in July. If you dislike the constant noise, it's miserable.
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!
