"THE AVENUES" Top 5 Page for this destination Salt Lake City Things to Do Tip by Segolily

Salt Lake City Things to Do: 224 reviews and 387 photos

East of Capitol Hill and separated from it by Memory Grove and City Creek Canyon is the area known as the Avenues. This area was built on the hills and as such has smaller blocks and narrower streets than the rest of the valley. Here is an intimate neighborhood, extending to the University, with eclectic shops and tiny surprises. At the east end is the sprawling and interesting City Cemetery.

Bordered by South Temple where many of the elegant mansions of old were built you'll find the Cathedral of the Madeline, The Governors Mansion, Shriners Hospital, LDS hospital and Salt Lake's only hostel.
