Moving to Millcreek
Millcreek, UT is a suburb of Salt Lake City, located just 7 miles south of Utah’s state capital. It offers a quiet, suburban feel that’s perfect for families with young children and professionals who want to escape the hustle of the city at the end of the day.
When you start planning your move to or from Millcreek, choose the area’s top-rated local moving company to make your transition stress-free. Wasatch Moving Co. moves over 1,000 families per year, and we know how to handle any move, big or small.
Originally settled in 1848 by Mary Fielding Smith (mother of Joseph Smith, the leader of the Mormon religion), Millcreek was officially incorporated as its own city in December of 2016. The municipality is home to more than 61,000 residents, 45% of whom are families with kids under 18. About three-quarters of the Millcreek population is religious, and, like many other communities in Utah, the leading religion by far is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
If you want to live close to Salt Lake City, but not be in the center of the action, moving to Millcreek is an excellent choice. The median household income in this city is actually higher than that of SLC, and home prices here are $60,000 less on average. Plus, you’ll still be able to access SLC’s many work opportunities, especially in the capital’s growing tech industry.
In addition to a low cost of living, families find this community attractive for its beautiful homes and low crime rates. And while the city doesn’t have its own school district, students in the area have access to top-rated schools nearby, as well as a variety of private institutions and magnet schools across Salt Lake City.
Utah is best known for its plethora of outdoor activities, and Millcreek is no different. If you want to experience the “Best Snow on Earth,” living here means you’ll be within an hour of 9 of the best ski resorts in the state. For hikers, Mount Olympus Trail, Parley’s Canyon and other trails along the Wasatch Mountain will provide tons of opportunities to test your strength and endurance.
Of course, if you’re looking for a relaxing evening, Millcreek can provide that too. At Sicilia Mia, you can enjoy classic Italian cuisine, including the original Flaming Wheel of Cheese. For a modern twist on American favorites, head over to Table X, which has won Best Restaurant from Salt Lake City Magazine, three years in a row.
