Wide porches or rooftop decks: Choose your vibe in a Daybreak suburb

Kathleen Clove | January 5, 2023 at 12:00 AM

Perhaps the most aesthetically charming suburb in Utah, Daybreak is a master-planned community of designer homes. Planners broke ground in 2004 with ideas that harkened back to a simpler time — yes, block parties are encouraged.

Today, the neighborhoods feature homes with large front porches to encourage conversation, parks to keep you playing outdoors and miles and miles of trails for exploring. There’s even a local library and a private lake stocked with trout and bigmouth bass. Daybreak also has an urban flair, with townhomes set amongst boutiques, cafes and a concert stage.


Daybreak is located in South Jordan, just minutes from I-15. Commuting to Salt Lake City or Silicon Slopes takes about 30 minutes. If you prefer to work or relax on the drive, hop on public transport at the nearby Trax stations. Several elementary schools, a middle school and high school are all close by, as are three major grocery stores and scores of restaurants. Theaters and museums are within a couple of miles, as well.
