Weekend in Sat Lake City

by Randall_Burt

Will be in Salt Lake City in May of 2003. This will be for a national Roadeo for trucks and Warehouse. Its for a five minute ride through a obstacle coarse of pallets on a forklift. Crazy but fun. What is a interesting site to see on a free day in Salt Lake City. A Must See?Question#2. The best way to get to Vegas from Salt Lake City? Fly or Train? I want to add Vegas while being on that part of the World. I know it is still along time but I want to know so I can plan a small Vacation. Around this trip.Thanks. Randall.

Hey,
You can either fly or take a bus, or drive, like most Americans do. SLC is an interesting place for its Mormon - related tourist attractions. The Temple Square is certainly a must, inquire about free movies (really good) as well. Family History Library may be interesting, as well. There are many possible trips in the area, but do not rely on the public transport. It's OK in the city, but you won't get to any touristy places.
Happy trails,

Marcin

hey there randall... there are many sites right downtown to visit.. sorry my suggestion might be construed as religious but ..hey, you're in Salt Lake City~so i guess the 'must see' is the Mormon Temple Square.. fully decked out in May.. Trolley Square, Park City, the mountains and of course~the Great Salt Lake are pretty close.. as for Q2~ best way to get to Vegas is definately plane.. its cheap and like an hour ride.. The Roadeo sounds fab~have lots of fun... Sea ya~Leslie

Hi Randall! Question 1: At the moment I´m just living near Salt Lake City, so I can give you (hopefully) some useful hints (I´m more or less a tourist as you will be ;). As others indicated before, the Temple Square is very impressive to see. Another highlight is the Capitol where the government of Utah takes place. You also have a nice view into the valley and on the city from there. If you want to go shopping, go to "Gateway" (it´s a big mall near Temple Square). You can see fountains there which are controlled by music. Very nice :) BTW: To get some Olympia 2002 stuff, visit the mall "Crossroads Plaza". If you want to go to Salt Lake: I heard that it´s not that nice (I haven´t been there yet). People from SLC avoid going there because it´s stinking very much. Nevertheless, I would recommend it for just one weekend. If you are interested in sport, see some olympic venues (e.g. the Olympic stadium). If you wish to see some photos from SLC, just e-mail me and I can send you some. Question 2: I cannot really say which way is the best to go there. There´s definitely no train driving to Vegas. Flying is the easiest way, of course. But I think it could be even cheaper to go there with a rented car if you only stay there for a few days. It´s up to you :)

Have a nice trip, Matthias

Randall, I'd like to give you some suggestions as to what to see while you are here, other than shopping malls and the temple.

The wonderful thing about SLC is that it is a city in the middle of accessible nature. I suggest you take a drive up one of the canyons. You can go up Emigration Canyon (15 minutes) and eat outside at Ruth's Diner (perfect time of year for that). You can drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon (40 minutes) to the very top, just past Alta ski resort - there are hiking and mt. biking trails both long and short at Albion Basin and there may still be some beautiful wildflowers up there. It's especially nice if it's hot in the city - Albion is about 8,000 ft altitude.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or for more details about things to see and do. I have lived here all my life.

Re: Re: Weekend in Salt Lake City

by Randall_Burt

Thank You Mittens. Emigration Canyon sounds nice. Maybe I can talk the Boss into taking Us there. From the pictures I see, I hope to get alot of time taking Photos. Saturday will be booked up all day with the Roadeo at the Salt Palace and Awards Dinner at the Grand America Hotel which is also where I will be staying. We do a test on Friday and some free time. Maybe then I hope to see Salt Lake City Area. Thursday is a late arrival so Maybe some night life. Thank You for the information and I just can't wait. I have never been to Salt Lake City.Randall.

the canyons drive is a great idea - but i'd also put the gardens on the list - near the University of Utah just off Parleys Drive is a garden/park that has a very nice walking path - it is up high so you overlook the city proper (giving you the chance to look down on the smog...) - can't remember the name of the place - some local with know the name - they have funky concerts there frequently during the summer.

have fun.

Travel Tips for Salt Lake City

Some Clarification.

by jgriego81

I am posting this because much of the info here is incorrect or outdated.

Utah did away with the Private Club law a little while ago so you do not have to have a membership to enter those establishments anymore. The downside of this is that in the past, you may have paid a smaller amount for the temporary membership whereas now many of the establishments make you pay a cover charge that will cost you more.

You can no longer smoke in bars & clubs in Utah.

You can get an alcoholic beverage other than beer in a bar or club in Utah. There are several establishments that do not have a liquor license and those establishments can only serve beer.

In Utah, grocery stores and convenience stores are only allowed to sell beer that is 3.2% by weight. This is the beer that people refer to as weak. In reality, the difference is in how it is labeled. Some states label by weight and others by volume. 3.2% by weight is actually 4.0% by volume. There are many states that have similar laws limiting grocery stores to selling only 3.2% ABW/4.0% ABV or lower.

You can get beer that is 3.2% ABW/4.0% ABV and higher at the state liquor stores, restaurants and bars & clubs. Restaurants do require you to order food if you are going to drink alcohol.

I have never had a hard time finding a state liquor store. This may be partly because I live here but I’m pretty sure most people have used Google before. Here is a link to state Liquor & Wine stores in Utah: http://abc.utah.gov/stores/index.html. They are closed on Sundays and election days but most are open until 10 PM Monday through Saturday.

Andrei Kirilenko aka AK-47

by Confucius

Although Stockton and Malone are no longer with the Jazz there is a young star who will provide excitement for NBA fans visiting Salt Lake City for years to come.
Andrei Kirilenko is from Russia where he played for the national team and won the Russian League's slam dunk contest. A versatile shooter and shot blocker, Kirilenko goes by the nickname "AK-47" which happens to be his jersey number. His wife is a popular singer in Russia and he appears in one of her music videos. Bring an Andrei Kirilenko basketball card to the pre-game warm-ups and he might autograph it for your child.

Road Construction

by KaiM

When I was there the city was rebuilding a lot of major streets and highways in preparation of the Olympic Games 2002. That caused lots of traffic jams especially during rush hour. Don´t know how it is there now.

BLACK ANGUS IS VERY NICE WITH A WESTERN ATMOSPHERE AND GENERALLY EXCELLENT SERVICE. DOWNFALLS, IT IS SOMEWHAT EXPENSIVE (25.00 PER PERSON AVG.) ALSO ON A WEEKEND, YOU MAY HAVE AN HOUR WAIT TO BE SEATED. STEAK
