Within the mostly residential enclave of Foothill is the well-regarded Place Heritage Park. Bordered by I-80, Foothill is perched at the base of the spectacular Wasatch Range, and is named for the main street paralleling the mountains, Foothill Drive.

The University of Utah abuts this community, which has a suburban feel with broad streets and many single-family homes and condominiums. You’ll also find the Hogle Zoo here, and if monkeying around isn’t for you, there’s the lovely Red Butte Garden and Arboretum to explore.

For shopping, Foothill Village Shopping Center fits the bill with a bevy of smaller stores and nationally known chains. Golfers can enjoy the Bonneville Golf Course and history buffs can explore the Fort Douglas Military Museum. Emigration Creek offers wildlife and bird watching.
