Salt Lake City is experiencing a true Renaissance that started with the opening of a $2 billion redevelopment project, City Creek, as well as two groundbreaking museums — The Natural History Museum of Utah and The Leonardo. The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater opened in 2016 in the heart of downtown Salt Lake and features the 2,500-seat Delta Performance Hall, designed for acoustic excellence, as well as a separate 150-seat, multi-use Black Box theater. Abravanel Hall is the city’s premier concert hall and home to the Utah Symphony and Opera. The Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre is home to Ballet West and the Utah Opera, while The Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center is a prime venue for concerts, dance, ballet and theater.
The TRAX light rail line from Salt Lake City International Airport to downtown, a GREENbike program and the new Sugar House Streetcar have made Salt Lake one of the greenest cities in the country.
Home to four of America’s top winter resorts – Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude – Salt Lake City is basecamp for winter vacations and is nicknamed “Ski City”. The legendary slopes are just a 30-minute drive from Utah’s capital city, a vibrant downtown and more than 1,700 restaurants, 140 bars and 19 unique neighborhoods. It’s après ski redefined thanks to performing arts, museums, shopping, live music and pro sports. Salt Lake City International Airport is just minutes away and no other city in the world packs in so much urban energy so incredibly close to 500 inches of “The Greatest Snow on Earth.”
Over half of Utah’s out-of-state visitors opt for staying in Salt Lake, and with good reason. Located 20 minutes from SLC International Airport with multiple daily flights from most major domestic gateways, the downtown area provides guests with the best of all worlds.
