About Draper

Draper, Utah is Salt Lake’s southernmost east-side city. Its foothill neighborhoods are known for their spacious homes, quiet cul-de-sacs and spectacular views. In old Draper, you will find shady parks, farm properties, and more affordable homes and condominiums. Draper’s public school system offers quality neighborhood and public charter options. And private schools such as Juan Diego and Waterford (in nearby Sandy) are consistently ranked best in state. Residents have convenient access to national shopping and dining chains, as well as popular local businesses. For those looking to escape Salt Lake’s infamous inversions, winding roads near South Mountain reach elevations higher than the inversion point. Residents also enjoy unprecedented access to mountain biking and hiking trails up Corner and Red Rock Canyon.
