The first thing people think of when they hear ‘Salt Lake City’ is ‘The Great Salt Lake‘. The lake is a great tourist and recreational place to explore because of how many different viewing points there are, but that’s not all there is to the city. If nature and hiking isn’t your thing, try out our 2 day Salt Lake City itinerary, where a full day is dedicated to exploring Salt Lake City.
The Great Salt Lake is an important part of what Salt Lake City is known for. The salt density is so high, if you lay on your back in the water, you will just float. The Great Salt Lake is also known for having a beach, camping, and picnic areas. The media isn’t wrong, it has all those things, but it has more that may make you second guess whether or not you want to book a vacation to visit it.
