Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City doesn’t slow down when the snow melts. Long, dry summers and warm autumns characterize the region’s other alluring seasons, a time when the great outdoors becomes a hotbed of hiking, trekking, fishing, kayaking, swimming, and more. The city hosts a network of bike trails that stretch into the surrounding foothills and mountains; the adventurous can saddle up on horseback and ride into the high country; and the wild at heart can climb some of the toughest rock the state has to offer. Utah is home to 21 national parks and national monuments, while Salt Lake offers quick access to nearly 40 state parks and major natural attractions.
