Best Time to Visit Salt Lake City

While Salt Lake City experiences four distinct seasons, two of them are most popular with visitors. In summer, the temperatures in the valley are very nice. During this time, many people tour the city and enjoy the outdoors. In the winter, the mountains surrounding the city receive heavy snowfall. At that point, visitors flock to the mountain resorts for skiing, tubing, and snowboarding.

For visitors who want the best hotel deals in the winter, it's important to avoid holidays like Christmas and long weekends like President's Day weekend. This is when hotels raise their rates and the slopes become crowded. However, for visitors who want to experience the cultural and outdoor activities that Salt Lake City has to offer without all the snow, September and October are the best months to visit. At that point, family vacations have ended because children are back in school, but skiers haven't arrived because the weather is still warm. Hotels like the Best Western Plus Airport Inn Salt Lake City often have extremely low prices during this time of year.

Budget-Friendly Entertainment Options

No visit to Salt Lake City is complete without a trip to the Great Salt Lake. This lake, which is actually the largest saltwater lake in the western hemisphere, has 12 percent salinity, which means it's saltier than the ocean. That also means that visitors can easily float in the water without any effort on their part. Plenty of state parks around the lake offer hiking trails, swimming in the lake, and beaches for guests to enjoy. Motel 6 Salt Lake City North-Woods Cross is a cheap hotel conveniently located near many of these state parks.

The Gateway, in downtown Salt Lake City, is a 650,000-square-foot dining and shopping plaza that has over 100 restaurants and shops for visitors to explore. Built just before the 2002 Winter Olympics, this complex includes a planetarium, movie theater, museums, and a live concert venue.

Cheap Transportation to and from the Airport

Travelers can easily get to the airport, which is just 10 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. Many hotels, like Super 8 Salt Lake City Airport, offer a free roundtrip airport shuttle for their guests. Additionally, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has an extensive public transportation system that runs throughout the area. This includes airport transportation, a light rail service, and in the winter, service to the ski resorts. The UTA even has a fare-free zone in downtown Salt Lake City.

Landmarks Around Salt Lake City

There are plenty of cheap hotels in downtown Salt Lake City for visitors who want to explore the city landmarks. The Salt Lake Plaza Hotel at Temple Square is just blocks from the Historic Temple Square. This 10-acre complex is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Utah. During the Christmas season, thousands of lights adorn the surrounding trees, and performers put on different concerts and plays.

For visitors looking for a great combination of outdoor activities, shopping, and dining, this area has what they seek. Cheap hotels in Salt Lake City make it easy to enjoy everything the city has to offer, and Hipmunk can help you find the perfect hotel for your stay.
