Cottonwood Heights, UT - A Great Place To Live 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 14, 2018) I really love living in Cottonwood Heights. The city is quite and located just off of Salt Lake City's hustle and bustle. I would not raise my kids in any other place than here. The neighborhoods are a joy, everyone is friendly and it is quite. The lovely parks and recreations ar ...Read More e great for outings with the kids. Let's not forget the schools, the schools alone are a great reason to move here. The grade schools all the way through high school are rated high on all levels.

The city is has a great community spirit. It is rich with historical and artistic culture. There are so many historical landmarks to visit in Cottonwood Heights. The community also gets together and have theatrical presentations for all of its citizens to come together and represent all the talent here in Cottonwood Heights. Every year we have the Annual Easter Egg Hunt and the Bark in the Park events.

Some of the best areas to shop are the many malls here in Cottonwood Heights; in addition there are local outlet malls available for great savings. There are so many restaurants to partake of that your head swims in deciding and your belly yearns for tasty morsels. I love the entertainment here, it is great for the family or for singles. My family and I enjoy Nickel Mania and Jungle Jim's Playland. If you love golfing then the Topgolf Salt Lake City is the place for you. My family went and while my husband golfed; the kids and I enjoyed the many games and other
entertainment available there. This is truly a family oriented city to live in and I love it! Read Less
