I’ve lived here eight years, and I love it. I do bike to work up at the University, and I feel comfortable walking anywhere in this neighborhood at anytime of day or night. I can walk to grocery stores, doctor and dental offices, the gym, and lots of other small businesses just beyond the neighborhood. One of my very favorite things about the neighborhood is the variety of types of homes. There are no cookie-cutter homes here. Being of mixed caucasian and native heritage, I do notice that it is not very diverse here, but over the years that has changed somewhat. I also feel like this is likely one of the best neighborhoods in all of Utah for people who are not Mormon. I have never felt out of place in that way.
Excellent neighborhood. I've lived here for 8 years. My home value nearly doubled. Great walkability. You can shop without a car. Great selection of restaurants and good stores within 10 minutes walk. I bike to work at the University of Utah. 8 minutes to go, 6 minutes to come back. Very safe. I have not noticed any crime. I often walk our dog at midnight by myself and nothing to worry about. Family friendly, with little kids selling lemonade in the streets during the summer. Very quiet and peaceful. Half hour from amazing skiing and 10 minutes from nice hiking trails in the foothills. 10 minutes from everything downtown Salt Lake has to offer but the city feels an hour away. Great schools. Friendly people. Many parks, beautiful tree-lined streets and a diversity of beautiful homes, many of them historic and well-maintained. It looks like an American neighborhood from a movies. I am foreign- born minority and very liberal. People have been very friendly. I feel lucky to live here
Unquestionably the nicest neighborhood in Salt Lake City (perhaps in all of Utah) when accounting for aesthetics, walkability, diversity of thought, school quality, access to downtown and the great outdoors, and quality of life. If you are not Mormon here, you will still feel like part of the community, unlike most of the rest of Utah. Other than maybe Park City, I wouldn’t live anywhere else, especially if I were to move here again from out of state.
