Salt Lake City, Utah, owes much to its Mormon pioneer heritage. Evidence of its religious roots can be found everywhere, from the spires of the granite temple at the center of downtown to the statues and monuments dedicated to the city's founding fathers.
But Salt Lake City is far more than a city of history. With a highly educated, multilingual population, this small city attracts high-tech companies, entrepreneurial start-ups, and world-class athletes and Olympian hopefuls. Salt Lake City is clean and beautiful, a jewel set against a backdrop of majestic mountains and endless sky, with wide streets and friendly residents. Visitors from around the world went to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Olympics, and from all accounts, they loved what they saw.
In Salt Lake City, you'll find an abundance of historic buildings, good museums, some world-class restaurants and plenty of recreational activities at nearby mountain resorts.
Salt Lake City strongly reflects the presence and priorities of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Churches are everywhere, Sunday afternoons can be quiet, and many of the top tourist attractions are related to Mormon history.
