Sugar House Reviews

All Categories
I have lived in Sugarhouse my entire life and I absolutely love it. It is so beautiful in all four seasons, especially spring and fall. And although I'm not a huge fan of snow, the snow here to beautiful! I love that Sugarhouse has so many shopping and eating areas that are safe and family friendly. There's always somewhere to go to have fun! I also know that it is a fairly affordable neighborhood. Everything that you could ever want or need (grocery stores, restaurants, entertainment, parks, etc.), you can almost always find somewhere within a 10 minute drive of what you want. Sugarhouse has shaped me into who I am today.

Sugarhouse is a quiet, family friendly neighborhood with beautiful homes and an inviting atmosphere. Located just a handful of miles from downtown, Sugarhouse offers a sense of community that is hard to find so close to the heart of the city. Beautiful views, convenient location, and crime seems to be non-existent!
It is calm, hip and close enough to bike to downtown, the University or SLCC. There's a lot of cool bars and restaurants to visit!
