Avenues & Capitol Hill

"The Avenues" was and is Salt Lake City's first neighborhood from A Street to U Street and from South Temple to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.

Tall, slender 19th-century Victorians intermix with 20th-century bungalows. Occasionally, retail and commercial hubs blend into the mix of the lower Avenues, adding character and amenities to this urban residential neighborhood. Proximity to good schools, coffee shops, downtown dining, light rail, and the University are some of this area's main attractions. As one climbs the hill from 1st Avenue up to 18th Avenue, the views just keep getting better and better and one finds ease of access to City Creek and the Bonneville Shoreline Trail System.

Situated just east of the Avenues, abutting the University of Utah, is the not-to-be-missed Federal Heights. This flat, easy-walking neighborhood shares some of the same characteristics of the Avenues but the larger homes and lots provide upscale living close to the University and its world-renowned hospitals (Primary Children's, Huntsman Cancer Institute, and University Hospitals).

To the west of City Creek Canyon and rising directly north of downtown sits Capitol Hill. Like the Avenues, the lower portion of Capitol Hill is the birthplace of some of Salt Lake's earliest homes. In the neighborhoods above the State Capitol Building lay the posh communities of Dorchester Pointe, Ensign Vista, and North Cove where homes can be over ten thousand square feet and sport multiple acres.
