On the same block: Several houses North of the rental is a dead-end and hiking trails up into the Bonneville Trail and Ensign Peak Trail. I have hiked up those trails dozens of times in various seasons and highly recommend timing your hike to be descending around sunset. You will be able to see the Sunset reflecting off the Great Salt Lake, the City and Capitol lights turn on. Ensign Peak is where the City was planned from and there is wheelchair access to a halfway lookout point if you drive half way up taking the back way. The full hike takes 1.5 hrs up, but if you drive to the tourist hike starting area, it might take 20-30 minutes. It is still gorgeous to just hike even partial way up from the rental around sunset time. 2 blocks East is Memory Grove Forest and City Creek Canyon. Memory Grove is like a forest in the City. City Creek is North of Memory Grove and it's creek runs down the middle of Memory Grove and into a small lake. there are horse and buggy rentals you can ride into the Grove but no cars are allowed. Sometimes Weddings take place in a charming old house within the grove. There are beautiful memorials and fountains built and it is usually shady as it is in a grove. 1.42 blocks South is the State Capitol Building with museums inside and walkways around. A couple of my ancestors have iron statues in the Capitol. There are models and stories of the history of Utah. 4 blocks South is the LDS Conference Center which is the world's largest indoor conference center. Two 747s can fit inside. Across the street South of that is the LDS Temple Square with several building about the Mormon Church and it's history. Just 1 block to the West of the rental is the Historic District where houses were built in the 1800s and are preserved under Historical Society Ordinances. West of the Historical District is the Marmalade District which is arty and celebrates diverse lifestyles. About 6-7 blocks south is the brand new City Creek Mall finished in Feb 2012. About 8 blocks South West is the Olympic Memorial Gateway Mall which has theaters, restaurants, shops, fountains, etc. One of my favorite local restaurants in this neighborhood is just four blocks away and the owner lives close by. The owner is Emily and you can find local produce, foods from local farmers, etc. They have a beautiful shaded patio when in season. They have a coffee shop attached and once I went there with a friend for coffee and the servers had left for a break. The owner asked if I knew how to work espresso machines (I had worked at Starbucks long ago). She said to 'knock yourself out' and I made our unique custom drinks with froth exactly the way we wanted. It is called Em's Cafe and I highly recommend it. There is another restaurant called One World Cafe. The owner, Denise, has a large local garden and makes everything fresh and organic. Everyone gets to eat even if you do a chore or two in trade. You eat as little or as much as you like of each item (there is no menu), and then you pay what you think it is worth. They just ask that you finish what you take and do not waste food. Each night, they make paper plates of food covered in plastic wrap and each morning the plates are gone. Their vision is to end world hunger and they have 3 or 4 franchises in other states already. I had a large community garden for 10 years across the street and two lots North of the rental and I used to donate food to them (I grew over 300 produce/herb plants). If you like to watch wildlife and birds. There are some neighbors on the street who are active watchers. Deer, cottontail bunnies, gecko lizards, etc. etc. Several deer used to walk around my community garden during the summer. It is like living in a mountain forest with great views, yet so close to the center of the city. It is a very charming place to live. ..
