Salt Lake City is located in northern Utah on the banks of the Great Salt Lake. Resting at the foot of vast snow-capped mountains, the city was founded by a group of Mormons that wished to escape persecution. At the centre of town, you'll find Temple Square, owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its extravagant temples and venues dominate the area. The Repertory Dance Theatre has continued to be an area of cultural and social liveliness. The theatre offers open rehearsals and free-lectures for all guests. If you're interested in the people who founded Salt Lake City, stroll through This is the Place Heritage Park. The park is dedicated to the arrival of the Mormons and features a living-history village that provides visitors with an interactive experience from June through August when costumed docents provide insight into mid-19th-century life. Some buildings in the village are originals, including the farmhouse of Brigham Young, leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the colder months, you can still explore this village, which contains an astounding 41 buildings.
The Twin Peaks and Mount Olympus Wilderness Areas are two of the best places to get a thrill in nature. The towering crags of these mountains can reach almost 12,000 feet above sea level and about 7,000 feet from the bottom of the dark valleys. Hike the rough terrain along the rocky trails but be prepared: high and low temperatures throughout the day tend to vary drastically and it regularly snows. If you so dare to take on such an adventure, follow Route 190 in your car hire to find many trailheads along either side of the serpentine road. Remember to always be safe, prepared and tell someone where you are going. Movie fans will enjoy a trip to Sundance, home of the famous annual film festival, just an hour outside of Salt Lake.
