Finding Salt Lake City Roommates in the Right Neighborhood.

When searching for a shared rental situation, it is important to consider the different neighborhoods in Salt Lake City. There are four very distinct neighborhoods within the confines of Salt Lake City. These neighborhoods include The Avenues, Harvard-Yale, Sugar House and Downtown Salt Lake. It is important to consider the location of these neighborhoods for practical reasons but it is also important to consider what each neighborhood has to offer to residents.

The Avenues is a neighborhood which offers a great deal to residents. This neighborhood is quaint with a number or recently restored historic homes. Tax incentive programs are encouraging the restoration of this thriving neighborhood.

The Harvard-Yale neighborhood is close to a number of points of interest including the University of Utah, the hospital and downtown. The housing options range from one story bungalows to massive Tudor estates. Renting a room in this historic neighborhood is definitely a unique experience.

The Sugar House neighborhood was named for a sugar mill which was under construction when the neighborhood was established. However, a number of complications prevented the completion of the sugar mill and it was never completed but the neighborhood retained the name. This neighborhood is known for excellent shopping and a friendly atmosphere.

Downtown Salt Lake City is the oldest neighborhood in Salt Lake City. The entire city grid system originates from this neighborhood. Also prominently featured in this neighborhood is the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This neighborhood also consists of a business district, the Gateway district and numerous retail businesses, restaurants and coffee shops lining
