It seemed nice. Do you know what it is like further south near holladay or draper? I don't mind suburbs just want to be central and at least close enough to progressive areas. I don't mind winter, miss it.

Thanks for your reply too, appreciated!

We are relocating to austin in two months and I'm concerned about how much it has changed. Change is obviously inevitable, particularly in a city growing as fast as austin but the culture and soul of the city was enough to overlook the lack of scenery and terrible weather, and that it is in texas. I still remember going to atx in the early 90s to see concerts and chase women. Good times

Came down to Portland or Austin and my wife won out. I digress.

SLC. We did a houshunting trip and all of my coworkers were buying homes in west jordan, south jordan, draper and saratoga springs. We ended up moving to a home in the yalecrest neighborhood and loved it. We were in walking distance to markets, diners, restaurants else we needed. COMPLETELY SPOILED. 9th & 9th, Avenues, Sugarhouse, 15th & 15th are great places to start looking. IMHO, anything in a township will essentially be a burb and generally dull.

I'm a progressive, native Texan moving to the SLC area- I grew up in Waco, went to college/grad school in Austin/Denton, spent a few years in DFW, and now live near Abilene (Yuck. It is for my husband's job. But still.)

We're really looking forward to the move. In the very least, there will be four real seasons.
