Salt Lake City Travel Guide
Vacation rentals in Salt Lake City, Utah are great accommodations for families, couples, groups and others who are avid skiers or like to see the sights. Salt Lake City is nestled in a valley at the foot of The Wasatch and Oquirrhs mountain ranges. It combines the cosmopolitan amenities of a major metropolitan area and the friendliness of a small western city. You can rent the accommodation of your choice. There are chalet rentals, condo rentals, apartments, studios, cabins and various types of lodging to suit your needs while you ski or visit the city.

It is a modern city whose location was prompted by pioneer Mormon leader Brigham Young to inform his band of emigrant settlers. Travelers come from around the World to visit the world headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Salt Lake City has a thriving University, wildly eclectic restaurants and a flourishing arts scene. The 2002 Olympics were in Salt Lake City and the venues are available to visit, as well as visiting historic sites on a carriage ride downtown. It is known as the “Genealogy Capital of the World” and a great place to start researching your family history. The accommodations available in Salt Lake City in this area include vacation rentals, apartments, studios, and condo rentals.

The recreational facilities are less than an hour drive from the city, where there are fabulous ski and snowboard resorts, miles of mountain trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding, and of course, the intriguing Great Salt Lake. The lake is so salty you can float in it; one of the best places to do so is at Antelope Island State Park. Here you can swim, bike, boat and view wildlife such as bison. Accommodations can be made in town or at the mountain with a chalet rental, condo rental or cottages that are for rent by owner. Chalet rentals are ideal as ski season is November to April, and sometimes even lasts until July!

Salt Lake City is the capital of Utah and, despite any lingering reputation, you can party the night away. A tour of the Mormon Tabernacle is a must. 

The ski resorts are within easy drives of downtown Salt Lake in several directions. Let's start in the Park City region at Park City Mountain Resort, broad and steep, and offering some of the most varied terrain in the Wasatch Range. This is home base and training site for U.S. Skiing, the parent corporation of all the American snow sports teams. There are 15 lifts and you can ski or ride on more than 3,300 acres.

The Canyons is just plain big. There are 3,500 skiable acres and terrain for everyone. You'll find long, cushy cruisers, steep and deep adrenalin enhancers, and wide, appealing bowls. It's only four miles from town and the accompanying nightlife. 

The third resort in Park City is Deer Valley, where Stein Eriksen, the charming Olympian of many moons ago, is your host. You'll swear he hasn't aged. Deer Valley prides itself on its commitment to customer service - and consistently raises the bar for itself in this regard. 

Head up Little Cottonwood Canyon for about 30 miles to Snowbird and Alta, just a mile (and another world) apart from one another.
