"Up" House Contributes to Utah Tourism Surge

Over the summer, we showed you the real-life "Up" house that a Utah construction company completed and put on the market. Turns out, the house has been a boost in the tourism to the Salt Lake City area.

The house is situated in Herriman, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City and has drawn nearly 27,000 visitors since opening this past summer. One of the home's builders estimates that some weeks, around 1,000 people visit the house. Herriman's population? Right around 20,000.

At 2,800 square feet with four bedrooms, the house is a "precision" replica of the home featured in the 2009 movie "Up." The home's builders, Bangerter Homes, received permission from Disney to construct the re-creation because "it's iconic."
