As the city's oldest neighborhood, the Avenues is reminiscent of the charm of old Salt Lake. Nestled between the Capital and Federal Heights, and between South Temple and the hills north of the city, this historic district boasts a unique blend of urban and suburban lifestyles.
The neighborhood's small blocks and narrow streets create a sense of intimacy that is, in many ways, unique in the city. As you stroll down its tree-lined streets, past the many Victorian era homes, vibrant farm-to-table restaurants, and parks, it's hard not to imagine the city's early settlers, building a neighborhood out of nothing.
But the Avenues aren't just a mausoleum of old Salt Lake. The neighborhood as a whole has become an exemplar for mixed-use development, with gourmet farm-to-table restaurants, a brewery, and even a hospital peppered throughout the residential neighborhood.
