This bustling, friendly city boasts a rich range of awe-inspiring architecture, from the grand old-world elegance of the Capitol to the striking spiky towers of religious temples.

Things to see

Behind the building’s flashy copper-colored exterior, you’ll find expansive exhibits showcasing mighty dinosaur skeletons, sparkling crystals, and ancient artifacts. After, take in one of the city’s most iconic sights at Temple Square. This leafy, tree-studded 10 acre square is the center of Salt Lake City’s Mormon heritage. Gaze at the Tabernacle, a silvery dome-shaped assembly hall, and the Salt Lake Temple - a mammoth, Neo-Gothic-style structure that towers 222 feet into the air. As the afternoon rolls around, immerse yourself in captivating creativity at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, which owns 17,000 permanent works, from Africa, Asia, and America. If you’re traveling with kids, cap off the day at the fun-filled Hogle Zoo, and say hello to graceful tigers and playful polar bears.

The airport also serves a handful of international destinations, like seasonal flights from Amsterdam - but if traveling from overseas you may need to connect at another US city. From the airport, take a speedy light rail train or public bus to Downtown. Alternatively, hire your own car onsite or jump in a cab. Thanks to its wide roads and easy grid system, the city itself is car-friendly, but bus and train services also cover the main areas.
