Salt Lake City
A vibrant metro where urban delights and outdoor wonders converge

Say hello to Salt Lake City, the capital of Utah and the heart of the Beehive State. Outdoor enthusiasts love SLC for its nature spaces while urbanites appreciate the city’s rich culture and history. Of course, you’re welcome to explore it all.

The high-elevation landscape inspires, with towering mountains around the valley metro and the Great Salt Lake, the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere. It’s also a world-famous destination for winter fun, just a short drive from four impressive ski resorts: Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude. (Powder Mountain, the nation's largest ski area, is an hour away.) Not to forget, Utah's legendary national parks — Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce, Zion and Capitol Reef — are worth the road trips.

Many flock to downtown Salt Lake City, the home to the Historic Temple Square and the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You'll also find art galleries, farm-to-table restaurants, craft breweries and Utah Jazz NBA games nearby. Further out, families enjoy Utah's Hogle Zoo and the Utah Natural History Museum.
