Draper Days- Draper Events and Happenings

Draper Homes- Draper Days - Draper Grand openings!

As a resident of Draper, Utah, who specializes in Draper Homes for sale. I am very excited about the recent events and Grand openings that make living in Draper such a great option for Salt Lake County residents. Last night I attended the new Harry Potter movie at the recently opened Draper Cinemark in the Draper Peaks shopping district. I am not a movie buff but was excited to see what all the hype was about. The theatre is state of the art with Luxury leather seating and XD- RealD-3D whatever that means. It is a fantastic theatre and the nicest Ive been to in the Salt Lake City area. Draper homeowners should be excited about the short commute to a first class theatre. Harry Potter itself was very entertaining and my children commented on how lucky we were to live in Draper with all the new amenities provided to us. I agree, Draper is the my preferred location to work and play in Salt Lake County. Here are some upcoming events and activities..........

With the weather being so mild this summer many Draper residents are taking advantage of the fabulous trails and hiking opportunities. Here is a link to all the trails available to the public. Enjoy some Healthy, free entertainment!

One of the benefits of Draper City's location in the southeast corner of the Salt Lake Valley is the convenient access to multiple trails. Within a few minutes drive, residents can be on high quality trails in the pristine Corner Canyon region or soaking in the 100 mile vistas from the top of Suncrest. Whether you’re in the mood for a light morning stroll or strenuous rocky mountain day hike, Draper has the trail for you.  For the Parks and Trails map, click here.

All trails are multi-use with the exception of Corner Canyon Walking Trail. Walking, hiking, jogging are permitted on this trail. Additionally, rollerblading and skating are permitted on paved trails.
