Crossroads of the West

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.

Explore Salt Lake City's surroundings by going to Provo City Center Temple (in Provo) and Timpanogos Cave National Monument (in American Fork). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of the Madeleine, stop by Harmons City Creek, tour the pleasant surroundings at City Creek Canyon, and make a trip to Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple of Utah.
