Alpine, Utah has been my home for the past 15 years. I love it here! The weather is phenomenal, people are friendly and helpful, and it's beautiful here, especially if you are inclined to enjoy desert weather, which I do!
There are several different things to do here, from exploring, hiking, checking out the different rock formations, visiting the downtown area, shopping, you name it and we can do it here! Unless, of course, it involves snow!
The shops that we have located in the downtown area are pretty much unique, one of a kind retailers, similar to the mom and pop stores of yesteryear. They also pretty much specialize in something whether it's home and garden, crafts, appliance repair, hardware, etc. I honestly like shopping at these types of stores better than the big box ones that have everything and anything under the sun for the simple fact it's a more personal experience and I feel better that I am contributing to our local economy.
It's great living here!
