Neighborhood Guide: Draper City

The Place To Be  

What started out as a place called Draperville with more cows than people has grown into one of the most populated cities in Utah. With condos, apartments and starter homes, as well as immaculate multi-million dollar houses overlooking the valley, there’s something for everyone, even you. We know how picky you are when you’re choosing your dream home.

You Can’t Take The Country Out Of The City

The main street through the city, 123rd South, has restaurants of every type and any business you can think of, but just a few blocks away you’ll find open land with horses, deer and llama… yes, you read that right, you could live next to a llama. If the farm life doesn’t float your boat, you’ll also find parks, hiking trails, an amphitheater which hosts concerts and events, and a community garden. Need to get out of town or commute to work? You’re covered with Trax and Frontrunner stations.

Never Bored

Draper is only 20 miles south of Salt Lake City and just around the corner from Lehi, but really, there’s so much to do in Draper, you never need to go far. Break a sweat with a wide range of hiking and biking trails. If you aren’t afraid of heights, Steep Mountain Park is the place to go for hang gliding, paragliding, and watching the sunset over the valley. Hate being outdoors? Weird, but ok, you have options too! Go to the Cinemark and check out the latest Star Wars movie, because there will be a new one every year for the rest of your life… you know it’s true. You can also check out The Living Planet Aquarium, Airborne Trampoline Park, Alcatraz Escape Games, Cowabunga Bay Water Park and shopping, soooo much shopping.  

So when you see a home in Draper pop up on Homie.com, snatch it up before someone else does, unless you really don’t like fun.
