Salt Lake City is a clean city, but it's also a bit creepy how clean it is. It's the center of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, which gives time-share style tours of the public areas of the Temple while closing guarding their inner secrets.

I just love the people here. The easiness of the city. This is a lovely blend of a country and urban city. The navigating was easy and the people oh so very helpful. There were so many family friendly activities. Some how i felt safe here and that was very welcoming.

SLC is a nice, clean city, with some great infrastructure given its size. The urban area is really sprawled out along the valley, but the downtown is most memorable, and most accessible. The snowcapped mountains as a backdrop is always nice too. Great place for hiking and outdoor adventures.
The TRAX light rail is genius and such an asset for visitors and residents alike, and with its connections to the larger commuter train, FrontRunner. The transit system was so convenient while I was a student at the University of Utah. I lived in the Gateway district for about five years, which has a quasi industrial / disneyland-like appeal. Outdoor shopping and trendy cafes, art studios, etc. The Farmers Market at Pioneers Park, in particular, is really fantastic. Grab a sandwich at Tony Caputo's, jump on the train, and get anywhere downtown. Sam Weller's bookstore is a favorite, and Liberty Park is terrific for outdoor sports, feeding ducks, and holding a community BBQ.
The city library, by architect Moshi Safdie, is a worthwhile visit and a great place to study. I often walked up the crescent, exterior wall, all the way up to the rooftop garden. Nice views, great place to read.
Temple Square is beautiful in any season, but in late November or around Christmas, it really can't be beat when it comes to holiday atmosphere. Lot of people shopping, thousands of Christmas lights, with couples in horse-drawn carriages. With a little snow, and some hot chocolate, it's the perfect vibe with your loved ones.
In general, the people are friendly, and really educated. The city also has a ton of cultural diversity. SLC has lots of potential and really is a fun place.

SLC is the cleanest city in America. Every aspect of this city is neat and orderly. The city is organized in a grid based upon the Temple at 0-0 and goes up from there. There are excellent sushi restaurants in town along with this history of the Mormons.

The view of the mountains is really great. Seeing the salt plains was cool too. I was surprised by how much I liked this little city. There's a diverse selection of restaurants available... Italian, Tibetan, French macarons. It was quite unexpected.

Loved Salt Lake City and the hotel we stayed in was great with every accomadation you can imagine. I went with my sister and 2 friends and we had a good time. Felt safe there at night and days. We had lots of fun shopping and finding new places to eat. lol

What we really liked about Salt Lake City was the Little America Hotel. European luxury that is unexpected in this small town. Marble floors, absolutely huge suites (450 sq ft) and exceptional food. The Morman Tabernacle was a disappointment because it was fenced and seem unaccessible.
