Salt Lake, An Overview
Salt Lake City is the Utah state capital and seat of Salt Lake County. Located in the north central part of the state, it is 24 km (15 miles) east of the Great Salt Lake, and is situated along the western slope of the Wasatch Mountain Range. The Salt Lake Valley was once part of ancient Lake Bonneville. Now, only a few rivers pass through our city. Salt Lake is Utah's largest city in a large region of the interior West and serves as the industrial, financial, and commercial center of Utah. Salt Lake City welcomed the world by hosting the 2002 Winter Games.

Salt Lake City has a dry climate, with only 411 mm (16.2 in) of precipitation per year. However, the Wasatch Mountain Range are well watered, and the runoff is used to water the valley. The average July daytime-nighttime temperature range in the city is 33 to 18 C (92 to 64 F), and the average January range is 2 to -7 C (36 to 19 F).

The Salt Lake City International Airport is just minutes west of downtown city center. Thirteen blocks west of Temple Square lies the Utah State Fair Grounds, and the Utah state capitol building stands slightly to the north. South of Temple Square is the city's central business district with many fabulous hotels. The main campus of the University of Utah is just fifteen blocks east of city center.

Downtown Salt Lake
Experience the thrill of a sporting event or a live concert, it's all happening everyday of the week. Where? Downtown Salt Lake!

Downtown Salt Lake City is noted for its wide streets and spacious blocks, a legacy of the Mormon settlers who laid out the city in 1847. The city was built on a grid system based on the four streets bordering Temple Square, the focus of the downtown area. Inside Temple Square is the Mormon Temple, which took 40 years to build-from 1853 to 1893. Other important sites to visit are the Mormon Tabernacle, the State Capitol, the Salt Lake City and County Building, the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Madeleine, and the Energy Solutions Arena. Trax light rail was completed in 2001 and provides quick access from one area of the valley to the next although a vehicle is still the choice of transportation means.

Salt Lake Tours & Attractions
A fantastic tourist and business destination with simple and close access from the Salt Lake International airport, Salt Lake has attractions that provide plenty of things to do and see. A stroll through the city to the impressive theatre district or an afternoon at the Living Planet Aquarium or Hogel Zoo can mean fun for all ages. Amusement parks, specialized museums and seasonal theatre all offer unique experiences for visitors and locals.

Salt Lake Hotels
From the regal 5 Star Grand America and the stately elegance of the Hilton to the contemporary luxury of the Hotel Monaco, Salt Lake's hotel scene is almost theatrically dramatic-with the hotels themselves on center stage. Our hotel pages provide editorial descriptions, price comparisons and secure online booking channels to boutique, luxury and budget hotels throughout the greater Salt Lake City area.

In fact, some of the most outstanding and honored restaurants are right here in Utah! With so many restaurants offering a wide selection of cuisine, Salt Lake is truly a food-lover's town.
