This is a beautiful town which sits at the base of the mountains. Also, its the town where a Winter Olympics was held (2002). Plus they have great craft beer and if you’re Mormon or love great music, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is there. All great reasons to visit.

What To Do
If you’ve never been to Salt Lake City, you definitely should go. It’s one of the coolest city in the U.S. I’ve visited. You can drink alcohol there, but its regulated. Like you have to show your hotel room key at certain places which makes it fun.
Visit the Mormon Tabernacle which is an amazing place. Plus if you are there in December (you have to get tickets beforehand) you can see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir perform.
