Outer Exoburbs West

Magna, UT

Imagine watching the sun set over the mountains as you walk peaceful trails and cross shady parks. Residents of West Valley City — the remote western suburbs of Salt Lake City — experience this as often as they wish. Now the second-largest city in Utah, this community holds fast to its small-town character regardless of its population. The promise of clean streets, security and friendliness attracts families, while the convenient location and thriving economy draws young professionals preparing to settle down. The city stands just southwest of Salt Lake City, setting the typical commute at less than 30 minutes. Easy access to the highways — 111 and 201 specifically — simplifies travel throughout the Salt Lake Valley. West Valley City hasn't let its rural congeniality prevent it from acquiring the refinement and poise of a modern city. The area's elegant restaurants and golf courses rival those of Utah's capital, and world-class outdoor sports facilities take skiing and ice skating to new heights.

Restaurants

Restaurants lie scattered across the area, but a significant number accumulate around Redwood Road. Asian fare remains especially popular, but locals enjoy a wide variety of international cuisines. A visit to Red Maple provides more than just a meal — its dim sum presents you with the opportunity to taste a wide variety of Chinese specialties. Bring a large group of friends and be sure to sample something from each cart that rolls by. Try sweet golden buns, spicy shrimp dumplings and barbecue pork. If your party has a taste for the unfamiliar, ask for a plate of chicken feet. The exotic spice blends of India take center stage in Zabiha Grill's flavorful organic meals. Satisfy a hearty appetite with tandoori chicken and garlic naan. If your dinner companions feel apprehensive about Indian cuisine, have them try the restaurant's unique twist on the hamburger or a chicken-tikka pizza. In the event that you fancy your dish extra hot or extra mild, the chefs take special care to adjust their seasonings. In Utah, Bucket O'Crawfish is the closest you come to floating down the bayou. Authentic Cajun seafood flown in daily draws a huge crowd of landlocked locals. Tie on a bib, dig into a bowl of clams, shrimp, crayfish or crab, and get to cracking those shells. Sauces range from rich and buttery to super spicy, but a local microbrew helps you keep your cool. Much of the fun consists of making a mess, so avoid wearing white and be prepared to get your hands dirty. Get your sushi fix at Fat Fish, where locals love the imaginative sushi rolls. You can't go wrong with red dragon or spider rolls, both of which feature sweet soft-shell crab. This restaurant made the unusual decision to place Vietnamese pho on its menu, but it continues to be a local favorite for warming up after a chilly day on the slopes. West Valley City's nightlife takes many forms, from sports bars, such as Copper Creek and The Puck, to cocktail lounges and dance clubs. Put on your cowboy hat and boots for line dancing at The Westerner, and dare your friends to ride the mechanical bull. Share some laughs and drinks at Wiseguys Comedy Club, where Wednesdays' open-mic night lets locals take the stage. If you prefer something more relaxing, kick back in any number of low-key neighborhood pubs.

History

Settlers arrived in this region in 1847, farming as best they could in the arid climate. The population remained small until the area was irrigated in the late 1800s. Four separate communities grew and prospered, but the neighborhoods combined to create West Valley City in 1980, and is now considered part of Salt Lake City's suburban sprawl. The city maintains the Utah Cultural Celebration Center as a venue for entertainment, educational programs and art exhibits. Attend Utah's Shakespeare Festival, or hone your own acting skills at a theater workshop. Watch in awe as traditional Polynesian dancers nonchalantly toss flaming torches in the air — spectators never use the words "boring" or "ordinary" to describe their experience. The whole family can enter the facility for free, thanks to a dedicated staff of volunteers.

Transportation

Cars are a necessity in this area, especially on the outskirts of town. Fortunately, residents find the freeways accessible and free parking commonplace. Uber cars and public transportation services relieve some of the burden on drivers. The Utah Transit Authority maintains a bus line and a train that frequently stops throughout Salt Lake City and its suburbs. Don't expect to hail taxis, as they rarely appear in the area. Locals consider bicycling a recreational activity rather than a means of transportation. The city does not provide bike lanes, and many intersections pose a danger to cyclists. Enjoy your bike safely on miles of mountain and forest trails rather than city streets. Salt Lake City International Airport remains your only choice for air travel. At only 12 miles away, residents don't have any difficulty arriving on time for their flights.

Cost

More affordable than other suburbs of Salt Lake City, this area's cost of living is almost 4 percent lower than the state average. You can rent a one-bedroom apartment for around $775 per month. Public transportation and gas prices are also easy on the wallet. Purchase bus or train tickets for $3, and fill your gas tank at prices 7 percent lower than the national average. Expect to pay around $5 for a beer at a local pub, which is typical for all the suburbs in this area.

Parks

Residents of West Valley City have more than 20 well-appointed parks at their disposal, as well as the Family Fitness Center and a recreation center for seniors. Visitors appreciate the beautiful landscaping and careful maintenance of the playground equipment at the parks. Centennial Park provides an outdoor pool and an indoor ice skating rink, in addition to baseball fields and other park staples. The city keeps fees low so families can take advantage of these facilities. Dogs are welcome in the park, but must remain leashed. Centennial Park also provides a venue for the city's grandest annual celebration, WestFest. At the end of June, this festival honors the diverse cultures of the area with music, food and games. The four-day event opens with a 5K race, where children and adults can vie for a trophy. Hundreds of local vendors offer the opportunity to bring home artwork and handcrafted items representing cultures from around the world. Wrap up days of fun with the largest fireworks display in all of Salt Lake Valley.

Shopping

Several Smith's and Ream's Food Stores locations make grocery shopping a cinch, while other necessities can easily be found at nearby big-box stores. This area does not maintain a farmers market, but the farmers markets located in the neighboring cities of West Jordan and Cottonwood West fulfill all your fresh produce needs. The city houses numerous shopping centers, including the Valley Fair Mall. Residents choose this mall for its popular department store chains and warehouse stores. You don't usually see independently owned stores and boutiques in this area - other than sporting goods stores, which remain relatively common. The Nerd Store caters to a niche market with comic books, graphic novels and games. Pick up the finishing touches for a costume, or find the ideal gift for a science fiction enthusiast. Prepare for extreme sports and outdoor adventure at Dogfunk. Unlike small storefronts with limited space for stock, this store stands in the front section of its own warehouse. This allows you to choose from thousands of styles and sizes of boots, boards and cold-weather gear. A state-of-the-art computer system keeps items organized, so you spend more time enjoying the snow than shopping.
