Discover "Life Elevated"
Combining the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the friendliness of a small western city, Salt Lake City is an ideal location for group travel. A beautiful, safe, and vibrant city, Salt Lake combines unparalleled access to natural recreation, a bustling economy, dynamic nightlife, remarkable history, warm hospitality, and Utah's trademark "Greatest Snow on Earth".
Strikingly framed by mountains and desert, Salt Lake City is nestled between the Great Salt Lake to the west and the Wasatch Mountains to the east, at an elevation of 4,330 feet. Just ten minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, the city hosts a vibrant artistic and cultural scene, cuisines that range from delicate to ethnic to down-home, restored pioneer homes on tree-lined avenues, numerous museums, a state-of-the-art planetarium—and sidewalks safe enough to stroll long after dark.
There's no shortage of things to do in Salt Lake City, and the broad streets, green spaces, easy-to-master street plan, and central urban light rail have created an exceptionally accessible city.
