What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Salt Lake City

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.
