Salt Lake combines
the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the friendliness
of a small,
western city. Hosting the Olympic Winter Games of 2002 enhanced
the community's profile as a world-class travel destination,
while showcasing Salt Lake as an unspoiled, family-friendly
destination. Whether you visit for a convention, skiing, shopping,
or sightseeing, you will find that Salt Lake is the right
place in any season.
Salt Lake is nestled in a valley at the foot
of two mountain ranges—the Wasatch to the east and the
Oquirrhs to the west. In spring, the canyons are adorned with
wildflowers and impromptu waterfalls. During summer, hiking,
rock climbing, and mountain biking are just minutes away.
A blaze of brilliant foliage erupts on canyon walls in autumn.
When the snow flies, it graces the slopes at ten world-class
ski resorts including Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude.
Daily sunshine, low humidity, and refreshing mountain breezes
combine for a comfortable year-round climate.
Salt Lake offers first class accommodations,
fine dining, noted attractions, historic sites, and great
shopping. The city is a thriving cultural center—home
to one of the nation's finest regional symphony orchestras,
world-class opera, dance, and theater companies, an illustrious
choir, and myriad art galleries. Salt Lake is also the gateway
to ten national parks within a day's drive.
