Salt Lake City Travel Tips & Suggestions

The bars close at 2 a.m. and the beer sucks.
Salt Lake City is an awesome place. Most of the residents are not Mormons -- there are a lot of non-Mormons here. I meet people every month who originally planned on being here for only a few days and end up extending their stay for several weeks. Salt Lake City is a very friendly town to Mormons and non-Mormons. I'll give you an example. The other day I met two young travelers from England -- they were dressed like punks. They asked me if I knew a nice place for them to visit. I recommended the Temple Square where the old Mormon temple is located. Later that day, the same young travelers extend their stay three more days! I bet if they did not feel welcome, they would have left right away. I am not originally from Utah -- I was born in Africa and grew up in Europe. I have been all around the world and I can honestly say that Salt Lake City is my favorite place to live. I like it here because of the friendly people that live here (Mormon and non-Mormon). I like the city layout and all the beautiful mountains surrounding downtown Salt Lake.

The city is worth several days of exploration, with skiing in the winter, tons of history, and top quality entertainment. Affordable, interresting, and friendly for a U.S. city.
