Utah is truly nature’s playground—and Salt Lake is the perfect base camp. Enjoy hiking and biking in local canyons just minutes from the city center or in nearby national parks. Explore lush forests on horseback or journey aloft in a hot-air balloon. Sit back and enjoy an aerial tour of nearby canyons or North America’s saltiest lake. Or, stay in town for a round of golf.

From Visit Salt Lake:

Utah may have a reputation for strict alcohol laws, but don’t let that stop you from sampling the best brews Salt Lake has to offer. With a thriving brewery scene that is only getting bigger and better every year, local beers are never out of reach. In fact, many bars and restaurants do a good job of supporting local breweries by adding several listings to their menus. That way, even if you can’t visit the brewery itself, you can still taste the flavorful results. From eco-conscious brewhouses to pubs that double as movie theaters, there’s a beer for every taste and temperament.
