About Downtown Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City, located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Utah, resides in the midst of perhaps the most beautiful landscape in all of the United States. The most populated city in the state of Utah is found in a region known as the Wasatch Front, which boasts beautiful mountain ranges, valleys, rivers and streams, and the Great Salt Lake.

Brigham Young, the leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, originally founded Salt Lake City in 1847. When Brigham Young and his followers, often called Mormons, arrived in the Salt Lake Valley they found a desert region, which would hardly resemble the booming metropolis it has become today. Immigrants from all across the world arrived in Utah shortly afterwards to build up and establish the religion's headquarters. In later years, mine workers and those of other trades began to swarm to the city in hopes of a better life "out west". Today the city including its metropolitan area has a total population of nearly 1.2 million.

The city was built around the Latter-day Saint Salt Lake City Temple and its surrounding block, which is known as Temple Square. The massive structure was dedicated in 1893 and remains at its previous location in downtown Salt Lake. While Latter-day Saint buildings tend to dominate the central region of the city, other historic sites can be found throughout Salt Lake.

The Rocky Mountains, which surround the Salt Lake Valley, are one of the major contributors to tourism in Utah. Eight separate ski and snowboard resorts are within 60 miles of downtown Salt Lake. The city hosted the 2002 Winter Olympic games, which brought major attention to the region.

The climate of Salt Lake is considered a semi-arid desert and has four distinct seasons. Summers tend to be dry and hot while Utah winters are much colder than other regions, averaging more than 60 inches of snow annually. The wide variety in the seasons provides visitors many options when determining when to visit Salt Lake.

The town is dominated by a variety of festivals, museums, concerts, and other cultural features. Many of the museums in Salt Lake offer guests an exciting look into the origins of the city and the rich history, which came along with the Latter-day Saint Pioneers. The younger generation in Utah has branched out and accepted a larger variety of entertainment, which has inspired film, art, and dance festivals.
