People talk about Texas being like a country all its own, even though it’s one of the 50 states. Take a look at Utah. Discover the culture of the capital city and ask yourself if you’ve ever seen anything like it. The natural scenery is beautiful over in those parts, and there are very unique attractions and places to go. SLC marches to the beat of its own drum. Just think about the past presidential election and how Utah almost handed its electoral votes to an independent candidate.
That’s something that doesn’t happen all too often for any state. Now, let’s look at what you can get into while you’re in Salt Lake Utah. If you have kids traveling with you, you’re definitely thinking about keeping them occupied and happy first. Therefore, Utah’s Hogle Zoo and The Tracy Aviary are two great places to start. You will notice plenty of other kid friendly attractions as you keep discovering things to do.
City Creek Center and the Joseph Smith Memorial Building are also two great attractions to visit. The Salt Palace Convention Center looks like a really nice place, and one reviewer talks about a New Year’s Eve party there. Of course, you can’t visit Salt Lake Utah without stopping by the Great Salt Lake. It was mentioned that many of the attractions in this city are culturally unique to SLC, and well, have you ever heard of a place like the Family Search Center? It’s a huge building, very ornate, and one of the things you can do there according to the reviews is to search your family tree.
Wheeler Historic Farm looks like a a cool place, too. If you think that’s all that lies outside of the normal attractions you would find elsewhere, think again. Are you ready to visit the Beehive House or the Leonardo Museum? There are also plenty of beautiful gardens and parks, and Red Butte Garden looks like one of the most beautiful. You will also find plenty of museums there.
You can’t run out of things to do in Salt Lake City. As you go around to the different attractions, you’re not going to be able to help soaking in some of the history. It can really make you want to keep sightseeing until you’ve seen everything. Of course, you can always come back for another visit to the state’s capital at your convenience.
