Lying on a mountain valley with the towering Wasatch Mountains set as a backdrop, Salt Lake City is a vibrant, active urban environment. Utah’s capital city offers exciting and creative dining, nightlife and cultural arts — complementing the long-time classics that anchor Utah’s proud western heritage.
Salt Lake was once home to the ancient Pueblo people. Today, it is a bustling region home to over a million people and still boasts its rich history of the Pueblo people, Mormon pioneers and so much more.
“This ‘Crossroads of the West’ is the ideal group destination, both for its unique offerings and unique accessibility to countless national parks, state parks and heritage sites,” said Michael Mack, Visit Salt Lake’s director of strategic partnerships. “Come and see Salt Lake, where mountains meet metropolitan.”
