Great outdoors dreamland

This is the official capital of the Mormon Church, so the first thing you might notice is the LDS Temple. But there’s more to Salt Lake City than religious attractions. Salt Lake City is a major hub for recreational activities like camping, hiking, mountain biking, rock-climbing, fishing, and boating. Downtown Salt Lake City is home to at least 20 art galleries and antiques shops, which you can visit free of charge on the third Friday of every month, during the city’s famous Gallery Stroll. The city’s nightlife is as lively as anywhere else, and craft brews are easy to find, as is a cup of perhaps the best coffee in the region.
