Salt Lake City Visit

On a recent trip to Salt Lake City, Utah, we discovered many reasons to visit this multi-faceted city.  Before we left for Park City, we enjoyed a couple days exploring Salt Lake City and found its’ history, neighborhoods, restaurants, shops, and people very interesting and friendly.

Definitely worth a visit every season of the year – Winter skiing in knee deep powder at world class ski resorts or fly fishing,Spring hiking or horseback riding, Summer fly fishing or bike riding, Fall romantic strolls in birch forests under canopies of color changing leaves.

Where to Stay?

We found  the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek a prime central location to stay.

The staff provided impeccable service.  We were given helpful advice, restaurant recommendations from the hotel concierge.  The Marriott City Creek Hotel location is next door to the brand new City Creek Shopping Mall, and only a couple blocks from the Salt Lake City Temple Square where you can stop by at the Square’s Visitor’s Center to learn more about how Salt Lake City was built by early Mormon Pioneers.
