The original site of Brigham Young's sugar house, this historic area is currently transitioning from locally-owned shops to chain stores and restaurants. The Fiddler's Elbow and Salt Lake Pizza and Pasta offer local brews and fresh menu options, while the Soup Kitchen is a savory alternative for lunch. Browse Highland Drive and 2100 South for antiques, eclectic gifts, and books. Sugar House Park offers playgrounds and a large duck pond where cormorants and pelicans occasionally fish. Follow your walk through shady Hidden Hollow with dinner and drinks across from the park at the Dodo.
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.
