Surrounding Suburbs in Salt Lake Valley

Salt Lake Valley is like a large bowl with mountains on three sides and the Great Salt lake on the the north. The Cities have grown together into one large urban area. With that, let’s look at the Westside. That is everything on the west side of I-15 that runs straight through the valley north to south. There are several cities that make this up. North to south there is; West Valley, Magna, Taylorsville, West Jordan, South Jordan, Riverton, Herriman and Bluffdale respectively. With so many people moving to Utah, these areas are soaring in popularity by generally offering more property, more space, at slightly more affordable prices.

With their own ecosystems, these cities are thriving and developing into their own destinations once again. Gone are the days where you have to drive thirty minutes to a shopping center. With things to do like Jordan Landing, the District, Daybreak, USANA amphitheater and more, the westside is quickly becoming far more interesting to live and stay!

Below, get to know a little bit about West Valley, Magna, West Jordan, South Jordan, Riverton and Herriman!

1. West Valley

West Valley City is just west of I-15 and has culturally seen as the affordable living option in the Salt Lake Valley. It is the oldest suburb on the west side and is dominated by 1950s-1980s homes. While there are new homes being built is pockets, it is primarily a more mature city with the newer builds happening to the south of it.

5. Riverton

This is where country and city living meet. Riverton is polarizing in almost every way with neighbors who are farmers on one side, and a 6000 sqft home sitting in a cul-de-sac on the other. As more people flood into the Salt Lake Valley, Riverton will continue to be THE destination for new homes.
