Holladay and Murray have a variety of locally owned businesses ready for you to explore.

Where to Eat & Drink

We probably shouldn’t say it—because it’s a closely held secret—but Tea Rose Diner  has the best Thai in the valley. At the renovated intersection of 2300 East and Murray Holladay Blvd, Caputo’s Market & Deli has taken root, as well as bakery/coffee shop Three Cups (385-237-3091).

Another excellent option at the intersection is Layla Mediterranean Grill. Just off the 6200 South I-215 exit, two of the valley’s esteemed culinary dining experiences reside: Tuscany Restaurant and Franck’s Restaurant. Which is the best garlic burger in Utah? Locals will heatedly argue that Cotton Bottom Inn has it. Hidden to the north of the Fashion Place Mall, seek out Prohibition  a ’20s-era speakeasy behind a secret door.

Where to Play

Wheeler Historic Farm  is a restoration of the turn-of-the-century dairy farm of Henry J. Wheeler. The farm offers a tour of historic houses. And on the farm you can milk a cow, visit farm animals and go on a wagon ride.

Where to Shop

Shopping is one of the biggest sports in Murray,. Fashion Place Mall (fashionplace.com) houses all the mall staples plus some more unusual shops like Lolli & Pops. And over at the hip, up-and-coming ‘hood at the corner of 2300 East and Murray Holladay Blvd., a number of new, eclectic, local businesses are sprouting up seemingly every day.

What the Locals Know

The Desert Star Playhouse (desertstar.biz) wins for silly, family-friendly dinner theater with spoofs and campy shows with names like “Nutcracker: Men in Tights” that poke fun at local culture.
