When it comes to the college life it really is an awesome experience when it comes to feeling a little bit more out of the city. The vibe has its sense of responsibility of people taking care of their futures. Traffic still sucks though and I highly recommend never living on 1300 south! If you have the funding to be going to Westminister your life is set! You could ride your bike or walk. If you have a bike its roughly a 15-20 minutes ride to get down town. Which in my opinion that's not bad. They have bike lanes, parks, a tone of restaurants and bars on 2100 S (if you arent feeling like going down town). The community wears a tone of Patagonia so you will be surrounded by vegans. It's very much more liberal but the conservatives are mixed in. Honestly, seems people tend to respect each other's opinions I feel like. Its a great place to just feel yourself.

Our neighborhood is rich in heritage. Established in 1853, it is one of the city's oldest neighborhoods. Sugar House is the site of Highland High School and Westminster College. It is also home to two shopping centers that feature retailers such as Nordstrom Rack, Barnes & Noble, Old Navy, Whole Foods Market, Bed Bath & Beyond, Petco, Big 5 Sporting Goods, and a huge array of fast food and family restaurants. Sugar House also features a luxury seating Cinemark cinema. At the heart of our great neighborhood is our 110-acre park which has been the site of a spectacular fireworks show and concert every Independence Day. In the winter it is a popular sledding location. Year round, individuals and families enjoy the beautiful duck lake and grounds. Sugar House seems to be the place from which most of Salt Lake City originates and later comes home to raise their own families. Generations still claim Sugar House as their home.
I like living in a walkable neighborhood where you can get just about anything you might need by walking a short distance. I like the mix of older houses and buildings with historical significance combined with modern additions. The traffic and crime in the neighborhood are increasing, which I dislike, and the population density is growing very fast.
