Local Reviews

It's is suburban but also urban. Nice restaurants within walking distances. We also have lots of animals nearby

It's a quite neighborhood. Everybody gets along. Everybody seems to get along. Residents have been extremely welcoming anytime somebody new moves in.

My daughter has friends in this area. Other then that there isn't a lot around. The school my daughter goes to is a nice school.

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.

My neighborhood is right across the street from the park and baseball fields. It's nice to just walk across the street to walk around the lake at the park. It's walking distance to the college campus also

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

About

Salt Lake City, UT

Overview of Salt Lake City

Active, outdoorsy families looking to settle down in Salt Lake City will love houses for rent in Sugar House. This historic neighborhood offers families the best of both worlds - quick commutes to downtown and the University of Utah, and easy access to the mountains for winter sports. Interstate 80 runs right through the neighborhood, making the region very convenient for travel to nearby communities. But when you live in a Sugar House house rental, you won't need to leave because there are so many things in the neighborhood you'll enjoy.

The whole family will like the massive Sugar House Park for fitness walks, a game of catch or a nice picnic. In addition to Sugar House Park, there are about a dozen other parks, like Village Green, Hidden Hollow and Stratford Park, scattered around the neighborhood. Other outdoor recreation spots in Sugar House are The Country Club and Forest Dale Golf Course, where residents can practice their swing.

Sugar House is great for families because the neighborhood is full of residential streets with wide sidewalks and friendly people. It's one of the oldest neighborhoods in Salt Lake City and is well known to be one of the most walkable areas in the capital. Aside from the beautiful backdrop of the mountains to the east, these historic, brick residential houses are surrounded with large, leafy trees. Sugar House is also a neighborhood that has trendy restaurants, including Finca, Fresco and Paris.

Ski, snowboard or sled

Although Sugar House is a very active neighborhood, the real recreation in the area involves winter sports. Salt Lake City is one of America's top winter sports destinations, which is why it hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 2002 and is rumored to want to apply again for 2024.

Skiing and snowboarding lovers renting in the Sugar House area will position themselves well for quick getaways to the surrounding mountain resorts where they can indulge their athletic passions. The neighborhood straddles both sides of I-80, which provides quick access to nearby ski resorts and former Olympic facilities around the Wasatch Mountains and Park City. One of these winter sports destinations is The Utah Olympic Park, where visitors can enjoy bobsled rides or take chair lift rides to the top of the K120 ski jump.

Park City has a variety of recreation options, including 70 acres of indoor ice rinks for off-season ice fun. Most people will likely want to hit the slopes at some of the top-rated mountains in the country. For the family members who don't enjoy snowboarding, skiing or sledding on Utah's stellar mountains, Park City has a great community with shops and restaurants to explore. 

If your family wants to reenact everything about the 2002 Winter Games, Sugar House rental houses are just a short distance from the University of Utah football stadium. The stadium was home to the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics, but now it's where Utes fans can catch a PAC 12 college football game.
