Known as the “Crossroads of the West” for its part in constructing the first transcontinental railroad, Salt Lake City continues to be a unique city that invites visitors to travel through, or even settle down and stay a while. Local universities include the University of Utah and Brigham Young University, which both play huge roles in the city, especially in terms of sports. Without a professional football team to support, Salt Lake City residents ardently follow their college football teams. For some recreation of your own, Salt Lake City is an excellent place for snowboarding and skiing, and it was even the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Landmarks dedicated to the Olympics decorate the city, including the Olympic Cauldron Park with a state-of-the-art visitor center and the Utah Olympic Oval. You also can visit one of the many nearby national parks, or hike, camp, and mountain bike at the Wasatch Mountains.
The Great Salt Lake lives up to its name, coming only second in the salinity to the Dead Sea. Visit the lake and float in its waters, which have an average depth of 13 feet. As the “Genealogy Capital of the World,” Salt Lake City’s FamilySearch Center helps visitors learn more about their family history. Other activities include listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, learning about pioneer life at the This Is The Place Heritage Park, and visiting the Living Planet Aquarium. With a rich heritage and beautiful scenery, Salt Lake City is the perfect place to rent your next apartment.
