All the way from London to Salt lake city. Is it worth it.?

by frenchlondon

Well, i work for an airline so i can travel for cheap. i ve got a free ticket to Chicago. I love the city but i ve been there in March already. So i kinda of wanted to visit somewhere else from there. I initially though of Saint Louis but i am quite curious about Salt lake city. Is it worth it or shall i stick to Chicago or Saint Louis.

ps: I will be in the US only for 3 days. Would i be bored 3 days in Salt lake city. And hey, i am gay. Would i be very bored then or is there a gay scene or at least some gay friendly place?, would it be safe to walk around town without risking to be locked up for being a sodomite? Harsh question but i need the truth there! I dont wanna waste my time and i wanna play it safe!

Thank you

Don't think you would enjoy 3 days in Salt Lake, not much to see except the Tabernacle, and as far as a gay scene forget it. St. Louis has the Arch which is well worth experiencing plus Union Station and many other interesting sights. You will find however, that if you are staying downtown, after 6pm it is really quite. I have been there twice, and at night the sidewalks are rolled up, unless there is a game at the stadium etc. One other suggestion would be Nashville or Memphis, great places to go, you will need a car, fairly good gay scene in both.

If you're interested in SLC, try it. Go for an afternoon. Then get a car and drive up to Park City (about 45 minutes). It's gorgeous up there. If you are looking to drink, you have to pay for a membership at each location (they're called private clubs there)- I think it's about $5 for a week, but you may be able to get a 1-day membership for less. I recommend Mother Urbans for a more diverse scene (not sure how many gay men you'll find there, but you'll find a tolerant atmosphere). If you want beautiful scenery, you should drive down to Canyonlands/Moab. It's about 5 hours from SLC. But not much of a gay scene there, I'm afraid.

Salt Lake City is the stronghold of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, i.e. the Mormons, and as such, it is extremely conservative. Why spend your 3 days in a city where gays are considered an aberration? Chicago or St. Louis would be more fun for you -- and maybe you can come to San Francisco on your next trip. :)

by LauraWest

Having lived in both cities, well, all three, actually! Chicago, Salt Lake (7 years) & now St. Louis, I'd be torn to say which would be the best to visit. Really depends on what you want to do. Try You just missed the huge Pride Fest last weekend. If you want any more detailed info, email me.

Travel Tips for Salt Lake City

you must go to ANTELOPE...

by patoo

you must go to ANTELOPE ISLAND... a part of eden !

It's wonderful... first the bridge to go there sometimes with the wind some 'ecume' cross the road. The effect is great to see.

The lake is very 'salt' funny to have a bath but after your skin will be white cover of salt :o)

There are wonderful sightseeings ! I must admit... there is a big commercial center here !

Golf Course

by grandmaR

I don't play golf, but I took this picture from the plane, which shows that Salt Lake City's sports possibilities are not limited to winter sports, swimming in the lake or hiking.

This is probably Wingepointe, which is right there at the Salt Lake International Airport, and the airport is not at all far from the city itself. West Ridge Golf Course at 5600 West is about 15 minutes south of the airport. It is closer to West Valley and South Valley lodging properties Salt Lake City has a tee-time reservation service that allows you to reserve a tee time at any golf course operated by Salt Lake City 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's free to register for this service

Wheeler Historic Farm

by Segolily

Located in about the center of the Salt Lake Valley, this beautiful and historic farm has been lovingly preserved as an example of a typical county farm about the turn of the 20th century.

Built in 1886 and owned by Henry J Wheeler who ran a dairy farm, all the main components of an old farm are here. First is the wonderful old home. So beautifully restored one can imagine living in it right now. But having to empty the chamber pots was probably the least enjoyed chore that would have needed to be done.

Out back is the old ice pond and house. No refrigeration so they would chop ice out of the pond, put it in the ice house where it could stay cold and cool down the food stored there through most of the summer.

Further back is the blacksmith shop, tool shed and root cellar.

There is also the Milking barn, where if you come at the right time you can try your hand at the chores of milking the cows or feeding the chickens.

At the back is the milk house where the milk would be separated and readied for transport to the consumer.

The farm is next to the Little Cottonwood Creek which can get pretty full during spring runoff.

A large activity barn has been built to handle parties, weddings, family gatherings etc. We've also had picnics on the grounds. I notice now they have a camping area, not sure who gets to stay there.

Bistro on South Main

by ZIMETMUS about Atlantic Cafe Market

While walking down South Main after discovering Sam Weller's Bookstore, I grabbed a table outside of the Atlantic Cafe market. Greek food, pasta, desserts - perfect for a late dinner and for people watching on a Saturday night.

Sevice was friendly if a little slow and the food was excellent.

Deseret Peak, outside of Salt Lake City

by leplaya

Deseret Peak is about 30 miles west of Salt Lake City. It is a moutain of 11,031 feet in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. It's a great half-day moutain climbing trip away from Salt Lake City. After driving up to the camping area parking lot (at 7,600 feet), it is only about a 3 hour hike to the peak (6 hrs round trip, but you should spend some time at the peak), where you can get beathtaking views of the Great Salt Lake, the mountains west of Salt Lake City (Oquirrah Mountains), as well as the salt flats of Western Utah. The path is well marked and except for a steep, snowy area near the peak that you need to be careful with, the hike is not that bad. I'm an amateur when it comes to hiking, and even I didn't think that it was too bad. Though it is rated as a moderately difficult hike, with a 3,400 feet climb in a four mile hike.
Not only is the peak beautiful, but you also go through wooded areas, and flowered valleys as you make your way to the peak. It is probably best to go during the middle of summer (I went in late June), because there is still snow on the peak. Also make sure you take water, because the temperature could get pretty high in the summer.
