An ethereal city in the sky, Salt Lake City is an iconic American metropolis renown for its Mormon Church headquarters and sweeping lookout of the Wasatch Range. Take advantage of the UTA Light Rail system to see it all, or get to the Salt Palace Convention Center with a lift of your own, choosing between stretched limousines for luxury arrivals or private sedans that make intimate excursions as easy as turning the key. With over 6 miles separating downtown SLC from Salt Lake City International Airport, it can be stressful keeping close to both work and your flight. Keep necessities close by booking at one of many hotels on the west side’s North Wright Brothers Drive, or go closer toward downtown with just as many choices on the east side’s North Temple.
Home to a traditional feel that gets a lot of business due to its prominence as the state’s capital, there’s a lot to see in Salt Lake City, even more if you know what makes you tick. Whether it’s a tranquil walk across the otherworldly landscape of Temple Square or the classic acreage and family-friendly train rides across Hogle Zoo, you’ll be glad you stopped to smell the flowers. Explore the 19th-century beauty of The Beehive House to get some background on the founding of The Church of Latter Day Saints, afterward getting some fresh air at Red Butte Garden, home to quaint arboretum trails and a massive botanical garden. Those looking to experience the strange beauty of the outskirts should take time to check out the free-roaming bison at Antelope Island State Park as well, finally ending the evening at the iconic Red Iguana Mexican restaurant & cafe.
