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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bridal Veil Falls and City Creek Canyon. You'll discover tucked-away gems like City Creek Center and Thanksgiving Point. Explore Salt Lake City's surroundings by going to Timpanogos Cave National Monument (in American Fork), Sundance Resort (in Wallsburg) and Provo City Center Temple (in Provo). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Church History Museum, get curious at Joseph Smith Memorial Building, stop by Harmons City Creek, and get a taste of the local shopping with Gardner Village.
