Things to do in Salt Lake City, UT

Unusually cool fun: Clark Planetarium is a treasured attraction for SLC locals. When you’re in town, stop by for an out-of-this-world adventure. The planetarium features an IMAX and the Hansen Dome Theater—a 360-degree immersive sensory experience. Hit the nightlife scene in the Sugar House neighborhood—complete with bars and restaurants. Go on a paragliding adventure with Pukana Adventure Company in Draper, UT, 30 minutes from the city. If you have a GoPro, bring it along to capture some epic reels from your gliding experience.

Salty, sweet & savory eats: Whether you’re in the mood for gourmet dessert, a decadent brunch, or a quick bite, the food scene in the “City of the Saints” is sure to please.

  • Breakfast/brunch: If you want a quick bite to kickstart a day of Salt Lake City adventuring, The Rose Establishment serves light, fresh, and flavorful brunch. If its hazelnut espresso biscotti and avocado tartine aren’t enough to convince you, its Riff Pinot Grigio is sure to get you in the door. For a heartier breakfast/brunch, try Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade. 
  • Lunch/dinner: Oquirrh serves seasonal, locally sourced American fare with an elegant touch. Its artistically plated food looks as decadent as it tastes, so if you get a taste for roasted duck breast, manila clams, or sockeye salmon, Oquirrh is your go-to. 
  • Dessert: In the mood for a decadent dessert after a day of exploring? Les madeleines Patisserie serves everything from ginger dudes and macaroons to pumpkin pie eclairs and gluten-free Reine de Saba. 

Day trips: One of the best things about taking a trip to Ski City is its proximity to exciting outdoor attractions. If you plan to explore some of the outdoor marvels that Salt Lake City has to offer, load up your Hotwire car rental and hit the road for a nature day trip. Sundance Mountain Resort is just an hour from SLC and makes for powder-packed snowboarding, skiing, or snowshoeing adventure in winter. Enjoy horseback riding, fly fishing, hiking, and more during the summer. Take a scenic drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon to visit Lake Mary, Lake Blanche, for mountain biking on the Wasatch Crest Trail. The Great Salt Lake is another mini trip you can take. When you get there, explore the lake on a kayak or take a sunset cruise for stunning views of North America’s saltiest lake.
