As one of the best affordable destinations in the United States, Salt Lake City will offer you so much bang for your buck. There are many outdoor options if you are interested in picturesque views and good exercise. On the other hand, if you are looking for a top-notch cultural experience, the city is abundant in museums. Unwind from your adventures with a natural spa day for ultimate relaxation.

Before you go

Your cell phone can be your best friend when visiting Salt Lake City.  To help you navigate your visit, interactive maps are available from visitsaltlake.com in addition to general mapping apps such as Google Maps, which can be extremely helpful.  And don’t forget to take advantage of the photo opps available on your trip.  There are plenty of nearby AT&T stores in Utah to help you with the latest cell phones and accessories.

Connect With Nature

Outdoor options can be the most inexpensive activities to plan for on a trip. Utah is jam-packed with scenic hikes, lake excursions, and camping venues to help you connect with nature. Discover where the city got its name when you visit one of the two Utah State Parks on the Great Salt Lake. The Great Salt Lake Park is mainly a boat launching location, whereas the Antelope Island State Park has more visitor-friendly amenities to offer. Stay overnight on the available campsites, or hike, bike, and horseback ride the trails. The Wasatch Mountains are also a great option for a nearby change in altitude that comes with beautiful views. The Snowbird Ski Resort has slopes for beginners and advanced skiers, so don’t let your level of ability get in the way of a good time. Warm-weather fun can also be had in the form of zip-lining, if you’re not afraid of a little height.

Temple Square

One of the most prominent attractions that fills downtown Salt Lake is Temple Square. Its three blocks are rich in buildings dedicated to the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Church History Museum exhibits immerse visitors in the storied past with artifacts, interactive media, art, and full-size replicas. Dive into your own past at the Family History Library, which aids you in your genealogy research. Catch one of the weekly rehearsals in the Tabernacle to hear the beautiful voices of the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir. These and other historic and cultural buildings surround the Salt Lake City temple, which is the largest Mormon temple in the United States. The majestic architecture towers more than 200 feet over the square.

Unwind Your Mind and Body

Make sure to incorporate less intensive activities into your plans as you journey through all the hotspots of Salt Lake City, such as the wildlife that live at the Hogle Zoological Garden. The Red Butte Garden is also a beautiful place to stroll through to see the many varieties of trees and flowers. Maybe your definition of relaxation involves amenities that only the indoors can provide. In that case, your best bet is a short drive outside of Salt Lake to nearby Park City. Take your pick from multiple highly rated resorts that offer a wide array of spa services that will rejuvenate your mind and body. From a deep mountain salt glow treatment to a therapeutic reflexology service, you can invigorate your body the way it deserves.

Utah’s capital city is truly representative of it as a state. The captivating history and culture is preserved and presented in beautiful displays. The inspiring architecture that lines the streets has recognizable and religious significance. The mountainscapes that surround the city are an impressive reminder of Utah’s natural beauty. Whether you spend all your time outdoors, in museums, or in refreshing spa services, Salt Lake City and the surrounding Utah sites will be sure to treat you right.
