Living in Salt Lake City will open your eyes to the various culture and arts surrounding you, but if you prefer living in a smaller town, check out Holladay UT real estate. Hollladay is one of the many suburbs and communities that make up the greater Salt Lake City area, but it is also home to friendlier faces and a quieter atmosphere. With less than 30,000 people living in the city, Holladay gives you the chance to see the sites of Salt Lake City without living in the city itself. Due to its proximity to Salt Lake City and the mountains, many people find themselves interested in Utah vacation homes. These homes are the perfect place to relax and unwind in the middle of the summer or the dead of winter. You'll be close to skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing on the mountains, but you'll also be closing to fishing and swimming during the warmer months. If your idea of a dream vacation involves a trip to the mountains, you'll love living in Holladay
On July 29, 1847 a group of Mormon pioneers known as the Mississippi Company, among them John Holladay of Alabama, entered the Salt Lake Valley. Within weeks after their arrival, they discovered a free-flowing, spring-fed stream, which they called Spring Creek (near what is now Kentucky Avenue). While most of the group returned to the main settlement in Great Salt Lake for the winter, two or three men built dugouts along this stream and wintered over. Thus, this became the first village established away from Great Salt Lake City itself. When John Holladay was named as the branch president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the village took upon itself the name of Holladay’s Settlement or Holladay’s Burgh. Holladay is the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in Utah. The city was incorporated on November 29, 1999 as Holladay-Cottonwood, and the name was shortened to Holladay on December 14 of that year.
Parks and Recreation
Like many small towns, Holladay has a strong parks and recreation department. The department is responsible for determining which programs are best for the new season. You'll find softball and little league teams forming during the spring and summer season and skiing and snowboarding activities during the cooler months. The department also offers a few programs for both adults and children throughout the year. In addition to those programs, you can also spend some time at one of the local parks. With playgrounds, picnic areas and fitness trails, these parks offer something for everyone.
Attractions and Events
Like most close-kint communities, the social calendar in Holladay is filled with the small town charm of Farmer's Markets, summer concerts in Creekside Park, games of the Skyline High Eagles, arts and crafts fairs, and holiday festivals. The bigger action of Salt Lake City is also a short 10-mile drive away.
