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.

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.
Great location, easy access to the freeway to commute to work and to get up to the mountains towards Park City. I enjoy the variety of restaurants and shops in this area and the fact that my neighborhood feels very friendly and safe. It can be expensive in some parts, but it's worth it!
