Natural History Museum of Utah

On a chilly or rainy day in Salt Lake City, the Natural History Museum of Utah is a fantastic family activity. The museum, which has 1.6 million pieces in its collection, is housed in a magnificent concrete building with copper siding and soaring ceilings. It contains more than 40,000 square feet of exhibit space and teaching resources. Amazing views of the city and valley may be seen from the observation platform.

The digital globe, dinosaur fossils, and a three-story indoor canyon are just a few of the attractions of the almost 5,000 objects that are typically on display. Paleontology, Anthropology, Entomology, Vertebrate Zoology, Mineralogy, Botany, and Malacology are among the seven permanent collections.

Red Butte Garden, in the foothills of Salt Lake City and a favorite destination among locals, is situated next to the Natural History Museum. If you’re in the area in the spring, it’s worth a visit. The spring blossoms in the garden are renowned.

Temple Square

Temple Square is a part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is where Mormons go to worship. Beautiful flowering trees, vibrant flowerbeds, fountains, and four significant Mormon structures—the Mormon Temple, the Mormon Tabernacle, the Temple Annex, and the Assembly Hall—are spread out across 35 acres. Along with these magnificent structures, there are a number of historical markers honoring significant figures and occasions in the faith.

It’s relaxing to stroll around Temple Square, especially in the spring and summer when the flowers and trees are in bloom. This area also has a number of excellent restaurants that are great places to stop for lunch and a coffeehouse.

The State Capitol

The Utah State Capitol is located on Capitol Hill in the Salt Lake city limits, 300 feet above the city, at the north end of State Street. The Utah House of Representatives, Senate, and Supreme Court are all housed in this impressive, neoclassical dome structure.

You can schedule a tour with a travel guide or explore the building on your own. Don’t forget to gaze up at the ceiling murals and take in the view of the city and the surrounding mountains that can be seen from the top of the main outside stairway. Simply head northeast from Temple Square to the end of State Street, and you’ll find yourself on Capitol Hill.

Mormon Tabernacle

The tabernacle is a huge oval structure with a dome resting on 44 piers of sandstone. With more than 6,500 seats, the minimalist interior is renowned for its excellent acoustics. Free tours are available all day long, and a fascinating acoustics demonstration is also given. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to go to a regularly scheduled, free performance or concert.

The famed Tabernacle Choir gallery is located at the western end, while the enormous organ with its incredible 11,623 pipes is located above it. Music and the Spoken Word, a radio and television program, has its historical broadcasting headquarters here.

Hogle Zoo

A fantastic family-friendly attraction in the Salt Lake area is the Hogle Zoo. It is easily accessible from the city’s center despite being situated on the eastern outskirts. The 42-acre zoo is home to nearly 800 animals from various countries.

There are seven main exhibits available: the Small Animal Building, the Great Apes, the Primate Forest, Rocky Shores, the African Savanna, the Elephant Encounter, and the World of Flight.

Kids can enjoy the Lighthouse Point Splash zone on hot summer days, ride a miniature train that passes directly by the lion cages or ride a historical carousel for a small fee.

Big Cottonwood Canyon

Big Cottonwood Canyon is a canyon located in the Wasatch Range in the U.S. state of Utah, 12 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. Many people love to visit Salt Lake in the summertime because of the activities available in the 15-mile-long canyon which include hiking, mountain biking, picnics, rock climbing, camping, and fishing. Skiers and snowboarders enjoy visiting Brighton and Solitude, two of its four ski resorts. The Big Cottonwood Canyon Scenic Byway, which spans the length of the canyon to Guardsman Pass at the summit, provides access to Park City during the summer.

The canyon’s mountain lakes, such as Mary, Martha, and Katherine, are popular destinations for hikers. The most well-traveled hiking trail through the canyon leads to Lakes Blanche, Florence, and Lillian.

City Creek Center

Utah’s top shopping and dining destination, City Creek Center, has 110 retailers and restaurants, including The Capital Grille, Coach, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., Free People, Anthropologie, Kendra Scott, Fabletics, and more.

More about Waite Vision’s Hometown

The capital and most populated city of Utah in the United States is Salt Lake City (commonly shortened to Salt Lake and abbreviated as SLC). The most populated county in Utah, Salt Lake County, has its seat here. The Salt Lake City metropolitan region, which had a population of 1,257,936 in 2020, is centered in the city.

The history of Salt Lake City began when early pioneer immigrants under Brigham Young’s leadership established it on July 24, 1847. They were looking to flee the persecution they had endured while residing further east. The pioneers who would become known as the Mormons arrived in a semi-arid valley and started designing and constructing a vast irrigation system that would be able to feed the populace and encourage future growth.

The Salt Lake City street grid is based on a typical compass grid pattern, with the Salt Lake meridian’s origin at the southeast corner of Temple Square (the location in the center of Salt Lake City that is home to the Salt Lake Temple). Salt Lake City is the western border of the Wasatch Front, a chain of contiguous cities and towns stretched along the Wasatch Range. The city was initially known as Great Salt Lake City because of its proximity to the Great Salt Lake. The word “Great” was removed from the city’s name in 1868.

Skiing and outdoor recreation are the mainstays of Salt Lake City’s thriving tourism industry. It is notorious for its politically liberal culture, which contrasts with the state’s overall strong conservatism. It serves as the nation’s industrial banking hub. Numerous colleges and universities are also located in Salt Lake City and the surrounding area, including the University of Utah, the state’s premier research institution.

The city’s economy is heavily influenced by the local, state, and federal governments. Trade, transportation, and utilities also contribute significantly to employment, with the Delta hub at Salt Lake City International Airport serving as the region’s largest employer. Professional and business services are equally important, and Intermountain Healthcare, the largest healthcare organization in the Intermountain West, is one of the major employers in the health services and health educational sectors.

Well-known Employers in the Salt Lake City Utah Area Include:

  • Zion’s Bancorporation
