For those of you who know the area well, what area do you like better between Draper and Hollady. Are these areas snobbish or easy-going and friendly?

I live in Draper and love it. I consider myself to be an easy-going, laid back, friendly person and have met many people that are the same. It is a safe area to live and with the current economy, it's affordable to buy/rent in my opinion. I've heard that Holladay is nice too- it's an older area so you will probably have a slightly older population along with typically older homes. I've only visited/shopped in the Holladay area so I can't really attest to what it's like to live there.

I love Holladay because of all the big trees, but it is, as luv2hike said, an older area. I believe it's also more expensive to live there than Draper. I love Draper too - and Herriman ('cause that's where I ended up).

Draper is newer and with overall younger families while Holladay was built out in the '60s and '70s and is more well-established with older families overall. Both areas are nice though.

Thanks for the info. We are a retired middle fifties couple that like to hike, ski and travel but still want to be close to shopping, health care. Semi high end homes with a nice view would be a good fit. Have hear good things about the people in both communities.

In my opinion, Holladay is a nicer place to live. It has tons of really old and huge trees and feels extremely private and secluded. In comparison to Draper, it is also much more centrally located. However, it doesn't have too many houses with great views.
It is older and pricier than Draper. Houses in Holladay cost about 400-500k to buy and Draper about 350-450k on average, although there are million dollar neighborhoods in both areas. Houses in Draper tend to be a bit McMansiony in my opinion, although those on South Mountain do have spectacular views.
Both are beautiful areas with nice houses. In the end, either one is a great place to live.

Is there much religious and political diversity in Holladay or is it mainly Republican LDS like much of the suburbs?

Thanks.
