Due east and just a mile or so south of Sugar House and the Salt Lake Country Club you come across Millcreek and Olympus Cove neighborhoods. You have officially crossed over I-80 freeway system to the south and you are now officially out of the city and in a suburban neighborhood. Many top schools are here and you are mainly now in Granite School District. For the most part these areas do not have corner shops and walkable restaurants. Most residents here hop in their cars to commute to the favorite Friday evening destination. Homes in these neighborhoods are commonly built in the 1940’s-1970’s with larger lots than Sugar House and downtown Salt Lake. These neighborhoods are also known for their views as both sit on the east bench of Salt Lake City.
