Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City has the spirit of a metropolitan giant and the heart of a small town. Locals are friendly, engaging, and eager to show off their city—don’t be surprised if you’re invited out for coffee or an organic smoothie, and the burgeoning gastro scene is unrivaled in the American West. Local artists produce tremendous contemporary works, and many of the city’s events and attractions are family friendly. You’re never more than an hour away from the majestic Wasatch Mountains, where some of the country’s finest skiing, trekking, hiking, and climbing await.
