The towns of Sandy and Cottonwood Heights rest against the western edge of the Wasatch Mountains. Turn your gaze east to the green foothills and snowcapped peaks beyond. The last bastions of civilization before the wilderness, these small cities arrange their streets in tidy grids, with well-kept homes, thriving businesses and excellent schools lining each one. This region attracts a diverse population of families and young professionals with the amenities and opportunities afforded by urban areas, minus the drawbacks of pollution and crime.

With Salt Lake City only 17 miles away, you never feel isolated. Drive straight north on Interstate 15 and arrive downtown in about 30 minutes. Easy access to the Interstates makes both commuting and visiting neighboring cities a breeze.

Although outdoor enthusiasts find sanctuary here with ski resorts and hiking trails right next door, this area does not neglect those who prefer fine dining to roasting dinner over a campfire. Theaters, restaurants and upscale shopping centers take center stage, giving these communities an unexpectedly sophisticated character.

Restaurants

The downtown areas of Sandy and Cottonwood Heights house a number of casual and fine dining restaurants. You find both American and international cuisines well-represented so no craving goes unsatisfied.

Spend a lazy Sunday morning enjoying brunch at Tin Roof Grill. This establishment draws a crowd with its dedication to making everything from scratch - even the bacon. A small menu allows for the focus to stay on quality rather than quantity. Try the eggs Benedict and the house specialty mimosa, blood orange and pomegranate. Night owls should stop by after dinner for a slice of their famous salted caramel cheesecake.

At Blue Lemon, you don't need to choose between a quick lunch and an upscale dining experience. The chefs pride themselves on creating healthy and flavorful dishes, plating them artfully and serving them at a speed that rivals fast food burger joints. In addition, guests with dietary restrictions appreciate the menu's significant number of vegetarian and gluten-free items. Order a mango mint chicken salad for a refreshing summer meal, or warm up on a cool fall day with butternut squash soup and fresh bread.

When you ask where to find the best sandwiches, locals direct you to La Sage Bistro. You can't go wrong with the award-winning chicken salad sandwich, but if you feel up a challenge, ask for the Gut Gremlin. Those who finish this culinary monstrosity receive the honor of renaming it.

Special occasions call for reservations at Tiburon. Feel the romance in the air as you step through ivy-covered archways onto a candlelit patio where music plays softly. An extensive wine list provides perfect pairings for each appetizer, entrée and dessert. Start with seared diver scallops, followed by the New Zealand elk tenderloin - the dish that put this restaurant on the map. End your meal with a sweet surprise, as desserts change daily and do not appear on the menu.

This area's eclectic nightlife scene ranges from neighborhood pubs - such as the whimsically named Porcupine Pub and Hog Wallow Pub - to upscale lounges, clubs and wine bars.

Stop by Club 90 for live music and dancing every weekend. Country, rock and cover bands provide a mix of music that appeals to a wide range of locals, from college students to baby boomers. Bring friends for karaoke on Taco Tuesdays, or just enjoy people watching over pints of local microbrews.

History

In the 1860s, settlers were building their homesteads throughout the Salt Lake Valley. These homesteads grew into towns, two of which were Cottonwood Heights and Sandy. With their proximity to the silver mines of Little Cottonwood Canyon, they became important stops for miners venturing out to seek their fortunes. Mining created a bustling economy in the early years of these towns, but the industry slowly dissipated, and all the small cities in the area became mere suburbs of prosperous Salt Lake City.

The arts play an important role in these communities, and the Sandy Arts Guild hosts classes for adults and children, presenting a variety of classic and modern stage performances throughout the year. Visit the Sandy Amphitheater for the Mountain West Ballet, the American West Symphony and the Chorus of Sandy. Volunteers keep ticket prices low so these cultural events may be enjoyed by all.

Transportation

Residents find that driving a car is the most efficient way to travel around the neighborhood; however, these cities take the stress out of driving with convenient access to the Interstates and an abundance of free parking. When you can't drive, you have several travel options at your disposal. The Utah Transit Authority operates buses and trains, which stop frequently throughout Salt Lake City and its suburbs. If public transportation doesn't fulfil your needs, you can always request an Uber car, but don't expect to find taxis in this area.

Residents typically consider bicycling a recreational activity, as this region does not maintain bike lanes. Furthermore, traffic conditions may make cycling dangerous in some areas. Miles of wooded mountain trails afford locals with a safe, peaceful setting for their rides.

Your only choice for air travel is Salt Lake City International Airport. Leave early for your flights, because the 22 mile drive passes through high-traffic areas.

Cost

This location remains one of the most expensive areas surrounding Salt Lake City, with a cost of living over 12 percent higher than the state average. Housing costs reflect this high cost of living, and a one-bedroom apartment rents for around $900 a month.

Fortunately, you save money on gas and public transportation. Gas prices are about 7 percent less than the national average, and you can ride the train or bus for $3. At a local pub, expect your beer to cost around $5.

Shopping

You can grocery shop with ease at nearby Ream's, Smith's and Whole Foods. Additionally, several local ethnic and specialty markets provide all the ingredients needed to create exotic dishes at home. Two farmers markets make it twice as easy to eat your vegetables - pick up fresh produce every weekend at either the Sandy Farmers Market or the Wasatch Front Farmers Market.

This area contains several upscale shopping centers, including the South Towne Center and Jordan Commons, each furnishing residents with high-end department stores and designer apparel. Bargain hunters appreciate centrally located big-box and warehouse stores. With their proliferation of shopping centers and national chains, these cities don't support a significant number of independently owned stores or boutiques.

AJ Motion Sports caters to both casual and expert skiers and snowboarders. Let the well-trained staff fit you with the right boots and gear so you can race down the slopes comfortably and safely. If you only ski occasionally, take advantage of their economical rental packages.

Treat yourself to sweet luxury at Chocolate Cottage. Sample an incredible array of homemade chocolates and toffees, but be forewarned that you should seriously consider bringing home one of everything. Some of this shop's creations may sound a little strange, such as the local favorite chocolate-covered grapes, but keep an open mind and mouth.

Serious home chefs outfit their kitchens with supplies from Spoons N' Spice. Find high-quality cookware brands and baking dishes that rarely appear in department stores, as well as tableware and a large selection of knives. Make this your first stop when you shop for housewarming gifts.

Parks

Salt Lake County puts a great deal of effort into the maintenance of its parks and recreation facilities. Residents appreciate their cleanliness, beautiful landscaping and convenient locations. Feel free to bring your canine family members, but keep them leashed at all times. Besides being places to play, the parks afford a venue for this area's numerous community events.

Autumn heralds the arrival of the Heritage Festival at Sandy's Main Street Park. Get to know your neighbors over a shared meal, while the kids play games and local bands provide entertainment. Take a peek under the hood of your favorite hot rod at the classic car show, or cheer for the parade as it passes by. Enjoy everything at the festival for free - even the food.

Butlerville Days remains the largest community event in Cottonwood Heights. Held over several days at Butler Park, this summer festival celebrates the pioneers who founded the city. Listen to live music while you picnic on the grass, or go for the gold in the all-ages 5K race. Children decorate their bicycles and participate in a bike parade through the center of town. End your day watching a spectacular fireworks display. Like other community events in this area, Butlerville Days is free for everyone.
