The Midvalley area offers the best of both worlds: quick access to downtown and its adjacent neighborhoods and quick access to the mountain resorts and their wonderful, magical snow. Midvalley is generally slower-paced than the Salt Lake City area, which is nice for those who are looking for a mellower urban experience, but there are plenty of amazing restaurants, bars, and things to do in the following Midvalley neighborhoods (and we'll help you find them):
South Salt Lake is mostly residential, but the neighborhood is very visitor friendly, with several parks, great cycling routes, a new streetcar, and some wonderful places to eat. Quick freeway access and close proximity to Sugar House make this a smart place to stay.
Midvale is "in the middle of everything." This neighborhood features a slew of hotels, restaurants, and shopping peppered along its "Ski Corridor," which provides a straight shot into the Cottonwood Canyons.
Nestled right at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, just north of the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, Millcreek is something of an outdoor-gear mecca. Not only can you shop for gear in this neighborhood, you can climb at a state of the art gym, XC ski with your dog, and fine dine in the canyon.
This family-friendly neighborhood is quickly becoming a dining hub in its own right, with exciting new establishments opening up regularly. In this neighborhood, you'll also enjoy quick access to great hiking and some of Salt Lake Valley's most unique historic attractions.
Staying in the Cottonwood Heights area means you can enjoy a 15-minute trip from your room to the lifts and a 15-minute cab ride from downtown to your room. This neighborhood has a fun après vibe and big meals for hungry après bellies.
