Circled by mountain ranges, Salt Lake City is a treasure trove of natural and cultural attractions. A national monument in the Wasatch Mountains, the Timpanogos Cave offers a spectacular view of the American Fork Canyon. For another striking peek at the city, head to the Red Butte Gardens in the foothills where fountains, waterfalls, and a colorful display of flora have long mesmerized visitors. Culture buffs will love to explore the historic grounds of Temple Square, dotted with museums and galleries. Pause at the South Visitors’ Center to marvel at a scale model of the historic Temple and the domed Tabernacle, home to the award-winning Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Descend the mountain to visit the Cathedral of the Madeleine, the mother Church for all Roman Catholics in the state. Other historic sites include the Beehive House and Fort Douglas while Brewvies Cinema Pub and Capitol Theatre offer excellent entertainment opportunities. No Salt Lake City vacation can be complete though without a visit to the Great Salt Lake, which provides a unique swimming experience due to its high salinity.
