Local Reviews

Living in downtown Salt Lake is entertaining, lots of different people around with plenty of chances to people watch. There are often concerts nearby, festivals in the nearby parks, just generally lots to do. Lots of places to walk and get exercise, there is just a lot to do with many restaurants and bars.

I like that I am walking distance to a park and close to downtown. There are restaurants and things to do nearby.

It's close to many things. It has lots of public transportation options. Also it is exciting and interesting.

The only thing unique is like a think of is I have a beautiful view because I am in a high-rise apartment building. One of my favorite local businesses would be Texas roadhouse. My family and friends go there often with me.

We are close to downtown. There are several restaurants nearby, Longhorns being my favorite go to. We are close to a major highway and it's easier to access the beach from this side of town.

We will go to the amusement park next to it because it is very lively and there are many people at the same time I like to go to the bar next to it for drinks with my friends
