A family-friendly neighborhood with a rapidly growing hi-tech community, Draper is warm and welcoming with down-to-earth dining and lodging options. Also appealing are its 90 miles of hiking and biking trails and a natural climbing wall that can be accessed most of the year.

Where to Eat & Drink

Known for its incredible 180-degree views of the Salt Lake Valley, Cliff House Dining Pub (cliffdiningpub.com) hits all the right notes with its selection of sushi, artisanal beers and craft cocktails. An inexpensive option is the Mexican food and fresh salsa at Donkey Tails Cantina (guadalahonkys.com). Despite its name, Pirate O’s (pirate-os.com) isn’t a specialty store selling eye patches and parrots. It’s an importer of fine and artisanal foods. If you want a stick-to- your-ribs breakfast, try Penny Ann’s Cafe’s legendary flap jacks.
