Things to Do in The Avenues

View Map

The Avenues, or The Aves, gets its name from the numbered avenues and streets in what was one of Salt Lake City’s first neighborhood enclaves. Drawing professionals and artists, this area just northeast of downtown, provides easy access to the city’s core and great views of the Wasatch Mountains.

Older Victorian-era and Queen Anne style houses, modern apartments and townhouses fill the area, which is primarily residential, tree-lined, and peppered with green space, such as Popperton Park. The LDS Hospital complex is located here, as is the Shriners Hospital for Children. Local shops and galleries also dot the neatly laid out and narrow streets.
