Nothing compares to the sheer beauty of the Wasatch foothills, with dramatic mountains, sprawling lakes and sweepsing blue skies all around. Salt Lake City, Utah vacations put you in the middle of it all, from Olympic-quality skiing to picturesque golf and ground-breaking indoor recreation. If you'd rather stick to shopping, festivals, museums and dining, you're in luck as well. The SLC area is filled with special sights like the animatronic reptiles at Dinosaur Park, vintage aircraft at the Aerospace Museum on Hill AFB and star-studded Sundance Film Festival events every January.
