SKIING AND OUTDOORS

With its idyllic peaks and ski conditions, it’s no surprise that Salt Lake City has played host to the Winter Olympic Games along with a number of other world cup and championship events. During winter, piles of dry snow smother the Wasatch, providing excellent downhill skiing at seven large resorts within 45 minutes of downtown, including Alta, Solitude, Snowbird and Brighton.

But if skiing’s not your thing or you prefer to visit in warmer months, there’s still plenty to see and do in nature. Take a trip to the Great Salt Lake, an inland sea that’s responsible for the city’s name. Ride a tram up to 9,000 feet in the Wasatch Mountains for unforgettable views and photos. Or if you’d like to venture farther, a number of air tours to famous natural wonders like Arches National Park, the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone operate out of Salt Lake City.

ARTS AND CULTURE

While the skiing is certainly top-notch in Salt Lake City, don't miss the Clark Planetarium, equipped with Utah’s first 3D IMAX Theater. Take in the Hogle Zoo or the Museum of Fine Arts with its beautiful and wide range of works. Enjoy performances at the Hale Theatre. And if there's a concert while you're in town, catch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. One of the nation’s finest, it’s 360 voices strong and been featured on gold and platinum albums.

RESTAURANTS

Salt Lake City is the unexpected home to a developing food scene with chef-owned restaurants, craft breweries and urban wineries and distillers popping up all the time.
