The Avenues & Salt Lake City Neighborhood Guide | Utah Real Estate
The Avenues │ Salt Lake City
Located just outside of Downtown Salt Lake City, the Avenues sits in the northeast bench of the Wasatch Mountains and offer residents old-world Victorian style homes. Locals have the benefits of living within walking distance to Downtown and in close proximity to popular Salt Lake attractions such as the Red Butte Garden & Arboretum at the University of Utah campus.
Shops & Restaurants
Located a few minutes outside of the Avenues is the City Creek Center, which is one of the nation’s largest mixed-use downtown redevelopment projects. Featuring a retractable glass roof, residents and guests can enjoy this outdoor mall year-round. There are over 100 stores and restaurants, such as H&M, Nordstrom, Texas de Brazil and more. If that isn’t enough, the Gateway, located a few blocks west of City Creek, offers even more boutique shopping, restaurants, and a Megaplex 12 theater. You won’t find much missing around the downtown Salt Lake City area.
Parks & Recreation
Tucked against the Wasatch Front, the Avenues is convenient to many hikes, trails, and outdoor adventures. Located a short 10-15 minute drive away is Utah’s Hogle Zoo. In addition, many amenities offered at the University of Utah campus, such as the Natural History Museum and the Red Butte Garden & Arboretum, are just 10 minutes away. Interested in more than just shopping during your day at the mall? The Gateway also features a planetarium and children’s museum. And don’t forget that Park City and the ski lifts are only a 45-minute drive up the canyon.
The Avenues students report to the Salt Lake City School District. In addition, the University of Utah is a very short 5-minute drive away. Other local higher education schools include Salt Lake Community College, the LDS Business College, and about a 45-minute drive away is Utah Valley University.
