Things to Do in Salt Lake City

Though the Mountain West is often overlooked by coast-hoppers, there’s tons of fun to be had in Salt Lake City. Few other cities are nestled so close to the mountains while still offering many big city amenities like arts, sports, and great food.

Temple Square

Perhaps the most iconic destination in Salt Lake City, Temple Square is the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and offers beautiful grounds to explore. Walk through the meticulously planted flowers in the spring or the impressive Christmas lights during the holiday season.

Utah State Capitol

The State Capitol is another truly impressive piece of historic architecture. The building was designed by local architect Richard K.A. Kletting and rivals the magnificence of the nation’s capitol and other Greek architecture. Take tours or use the grounds as a cherry blossom photo op in the spring.

Outdoor Adventures

Salt Lake City has you covered when it comes to outdoor activities, offering everything from world-class snowboarding and snowshoeing in the winter to mountain biking and rock climbing in the summer.

Alta Ski Area

For some of the best skiing in Utah that is also close to the city, head to Alta Ski area. The dry climate makes for perfect powder all winter long. And if you’re visiting in the summer, you’ll find gorgeous Wasatch Mountain hikes all over the area.

Bonneville Shoreline Trail

A favorite for locals, this trail is right within the city limits and gives a breathtaking view of the valley below. The Shoreline Trail is perfect for mountain biking, walking, or a moderate hike. Taking the trail from Salt Lake to Parley’s Canyon is a great 13.5-mile ride that should always end in a stop at Ruth’s Diner.

Bonneville Salt Flats

This otherworldly scene is something you have to see to believe. The natural salt plains have been the set of countless photo shoots and movies, including blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean. Head about 30 minutes outside of Salt Lake City to experience the wonder of an endless, flat, white world.
