Apartments for Rent in Salt Lake City, UT
It’s the city where skiers enjoy the “greatest snow on earth;” it’s Salt Lake City, Utah’s capital. Nicknamed “Crossroads of the West” for its central geography, Salt Lake City is also the gateway to renowned resorts, scenic national parks and recreational areas and a center for lively entertainment and nightlife.
Salt Lake City sees an annual average of 500 inches of dry, light powder in a phenomenon called the “lake effect,” where a combination of cold air moving across the lake and Utah’s dry air results in incredible amounts of snow. The city’s top ski resorts are just minutes from each other and downtown Salt Lake City, offering fine dining and lively nightclubs and bars.
Not a skier? There are plenty of bike trail options in the Salt Lake area, including Albion Basin, Antelope Island and Big Water to Dog Lake. Tourism has boomed since the 2002 Olympic Winter Games; although mining and railroad operations were strong source of income in the past, the modern economy of Salt Lake City is service-oriented.
Other major employers are the Delta Air Lines hub at Salt Lake City International Airport and Intermountain Health Care, offering plenty of opportunities for those looking for a Salt Lake City apartment.
