Utah, also known as the Beehive State, continues to remain one of the top-ranked cities to move to for recent years. Many of the reasons that people move to Salt Lake City are the rise of jobs with Silicon Slopes, the famous “Greatest Snow on Earth,” and outdoor recreation offered year-round.

Salt Lake City (SLC) offers entertainment options for everyone, regardless of their interests or age. Start by visiting the Salt Lake Temple and Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and get ready to dive deeper into an unforgettable adventure.

Here we give you a low-down on the six things you must experience in Salt Lake City.

Eat at Red Iguana

The Red Iguana Restaurant, founded by a passionate couple in 1985, offers high-quality, affordable meals. Ask for their sample mole plate to discover your favorite dish!

Their tag line is ‘Killer Mexican food that’s worth the wait!’ They are open at two locations – the original North Temple location and the much bigger South Temple location, where you are likely to find a seat much quicker. 

Take a trip to Park City, Utah

Located 35 minutes east of downtown SLC, Park City is a boutique town that is home to some of the world’s best skiing and snowboarding trails. Main Street has unique shops and restaurants to enjoy and grab a bite to eat. If you travel to Park City in the summer, be ready to experience a wide range of adventurous activities such as bobsledding, zip-lining, extreme tubing, and airbag jumping.

Soak in the hot springs

If you love a relaxing hot tub soak in winter, SLC offers many hot springs. Some of the most famous are Mystic Hot Springs, Crystal Hot Springs, and the Homestead Crater. If you enjoy hiking, you must take the 5-mile round-trip hike to the Diamond Fork hot spring before relaxing in the hot tub. 

Enjoy water sports at a reservoir

Although Utah is a landlocked state, it is home to natural pools where tourists and locals can enjoy water sports. Blackridge and Pineview are two nearby reservoirs set in picturesque locations and offer a multitude of sports activities.

Go on a brewery tour

Despite some of the country’s strictest alcohol laws, Utah boasts of some of the best breweries. Places like the Uinta Brewery, Red Rock Brewery, and Wasatch Brewery offer memorably delicious food and wines. 

Drive around Antelope Island State Park

Another local Utah spot is Antelope Island, State Park.  The best way to experience it is by driving around. This scenic route, full of beautiful views and wildlife, takes two to three hours to explore.
