A Travel Guide To Salt Lake City

Updated: Apr 2, 2021

Utah isn't necessarily thought of as a cool state, but once you visit I'm sure you'll change your mind. I have only visited a couple of times but here's my simple guide to this gorgeous and underrated city.


Places to Stay

  • Inn on the Hill

  • The Peery Hotel

  • The Anniversary Inn-Fith South

  • Grand America Hotel

  • Springhill Suit

  • The Blue Boar Inn


Things to Do

  • Check out Temple Square

  • Take photos at International Peace Gardens

  • Ride scooters around the city

  • Shop at City Creek Center

  • Explore Salt Lake City Public Library

  • Read a book at Sugar House Park

  • Hike Bonneville Shoreline Trail

  • Picnic at Church Fork Picnic Area

  • Go to Fear Factory

  • Walk around Utah State Capitol Building


Where to Eat

  • Ruths Diner (Diner)

  • Zest Kitchen & Bar (Vegetarian)

  • Red Moose Coffee Company (Coffee)

  • The Dodo Restaurant (Brunch)

  • HSL (American)

  • Even Stevens Sandwiches (Sandwich)

  • Nomad Eatery (New American)

  • Cool Bro's Pizza (Pizza)

  • Takashi (Japanese)

  • Red Iguana (Mexican)



Salt Lake City has a light rail that takes you to a decent amount of places but it isn't large enough to fully relay on. There as also scooters all across the city for exploring more locally. I would say to get the most of the city, Uber or a rental car are your best bets.


When to Visit

Unless you're planning on skiing, I wouldn't recommend visiting during the winter or early fall. One of my favorite things about this city is how green and floral it is (which can only be experienced during warmer months). Just keep in mind the summers get pretty hot!
