Utah's capital and most populous city, Salt Lake City boasts a small-town feel, big-city amenities, and plenty of nature on its doorstep.
Step out of the city life by going to Mirror Lake Scenic Byway and Guardsman Pass Scenic Backway. Visit Temple Square and Great Salt Lake for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Salt Lake City side-trips: Ogden (Hill Aerospace Museum & Ogden Nature Center), The Stump (in North Ogden) and Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge (in Brigham City). Spend the 10th (Tue) exploring nature at Golden Spike National Historic Site. And it doesn't end there: explore the stunning scenery at Big Cottonwood Canyon, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of the Madeleine, take a memorable tour with Tours, and admire the majestic nature at This is the Place Heritage Park.
