The Avenues is a neighborhood in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is named after the perfectly grid-like, closely laid out roads called Avenues and Streets. First surveyed in the 1850s, the Avenues became Salt Lake City's first neighborhood. Today, the Avenues neighborhood is generally considered younger, more progressive, and somewhat 'artsy' when compared to other neighborhoods. Many young professionals choose to live there due to the culture and easy commute to downtown The Avenues neighborhood is often referred to by locals as the 'Avs'. It is also one of the most important strongholds of the Democratic political party in UtahThe Avenues neighborhood lies on the 'benches' of the Wasatch Mountains. The bottom of the Avenues is South Temple Street (1st Avenue is the next street north), and from there the neighborhood is built up onto the lower slopes of the mountains.

The north-south roads in the Avenues sloping up the hillside are lettered from 'A' to 'U' Street and then 'Virginia Street', from west to east. The fairly level east-west roads are numbered 1st to 18th Avenues counting south to north. The rigid grid system breaks down around 13th Avenue, as more recent development farther north has taken a more serpentine bend. The 'major' streets used more for through-traffic, particularly for their connections at South Temple to city arteries, are B, E, I, and Virginia; the 'major' avenues are 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 11th, and 13th.

The Avenues lie just northeast of downtown Salt Lake City, and just east—over City Creek Canyon—from Capitol Hill. The neighborhood to the east of the lower (below 11th) Avenues is known as Federal Heights, and is traditionally thought of as beginning north of South Temple Street and East of Virginia Street. It is sometimes considered a part of the Avenues, though the neighborhood may be considered as generally more affluent than the Avenues. Above Federal Heights is a more recently developed area often called Arlington Hills. Compared to the neighborhoods to the east, the Avenues are in places quite steep as they climb the foothills to the north.

The large Salt Lake City Cemetery occupies a significant portion of the eastern Avenues below 11th Avenue, and abuts Lindsey Gardens (park) and the 11th Avenue Park.

The 'lower Avenues' (below 11th or 13th) is a neighborhood of older Victorian-era houses, and at one time was popular with younger homeowners looking for affordable 'fixer-uppers', but in recent years a large renovation boom has swept the area. As fixer-uppers are diminishing, it has become less affordable to the younger crowd. It is also especially popular due to its proximity to downtown, the large and remote Memory Grove/City Creek Canyon recreation area to the West, the University of Utah to the East/Southeast, and the airport, as well as low traffic and minimal commercial development. The only significant non-residential developments are a supermarket, a few surrounding businesses, the LDS Hospital complex, and the Salt Lake Regional Medical Center (formerly Holy Cross Hospital).
