Salt Lake City's sunny disposition means you'll find good company at kid-oriented Sugar House Park, dog-friendly City Creek Canyon, bird-happy Liberty Park's Tracy Aviary, and romance-ready Red Butte Garden. The rare rainy day is a perfect excuse to hit the new Natural History Museum, the restored marble-clad statehouse, or Broadway-bound theater shows.
Getting Around Salt Lake City
The best way to get around Salt Lake City is by public transit. Utah's TRAX light rail and bus system is free for passengers within the downtown area. Outside downtown, fares are $2.35 per ride or $5.75 for a day pass. During ski season, Utah's Transit Authority operates a Ski Service from various points downtown to several ski resorts. A one-way fare is $4.50. If you plan on visitng areas other than downtown Salt Lake City during your entire visit, renting a car makes sense. Paid parking hours are from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. for a maximum of 2 hours, Monday-Friday. Saturdays are free, with a 2 hour maximum. Sundays are free without restrictions.
