Alpine is a city on the northeastern edge of Utah County, and just above Highland. It is nestled up against the mountains and offers more seclusion while still being just half-hour outside of Salt Lake City. Situated on the slopes of Box Elder Peak, this gorgeous mountainside town is home to many families that desire more privacy and space. Alpine might be one of Utah’s best kept secrets when it comes to living in a picturesque place. Getting there takes you through one of the best scenic drives in the valley. There are plenty of hiking, biking and walking trails nearby. However, to get to restaurants and shopping you will have to take a short drive into Lehi or Highland as this if far more the neighborhood vibe.
