Salt Lake City in a nutshell
Salt Lake City- the world was reintroduced to this dynamic
metropolis last year during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
A beautiful, safe and vibrant community, salt offers
unparalleled access to natural recreation, a bustling
economy, dynamic nightlife, remarkable history, and is just a few hours drive from ten national parks.
Salt Lake is fast becoming one of America’s foremost destinations- and for good reason.
Nestled between the Great Salt Lake and a dramatic rocky mountain range, Salt Lake’s broad
streets end with dramatic views of majestic peaks.
Canyons serpentine through the city’s neighborhoods, creating a park-like atmosphere all year.
In the spring, mountain hills are adomed with wild flowers and impromptu waterfalls.
During summer months, hiking, rock climbing, and mountain
Biking are just minutes away. A blaze of brilliant foliage erupts on canyon walls in autumn.
When the snow falls, visitors flock to the Ski Salt Lakes resorts like Alta, Brighton, Snowbird,
and Solitude just 35 minutes from downtown. Daily sunshine, low humidity, and breezes combine for a comfortable year-round climate.
Salt Lake is the gateway to western national parks, including Arches,
Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, the north rim of the Grand Canyon,
Grand Teton, Monument Valley, Yellowstone, and Zion. America’s Dead Sea,
the Great Salt Lake , offers sailing, and nightly dinner cruises
in waters eight times saltier than the Pacific Ocean.
