“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
The University of Utah sits atop the northeast bench of the Wasatch Mountains. Aside from its academic and football fame, the campus boasts a variety of restaurants and entertainment in the surrounding area. For the best pizza in the city, head downstairs to the Pie Pizzeria (don't forget to sign the walls). Catch a professional stage production at Pioneer Theater, hear music at historic Kingsbury Hall, absorb culture at the Museum of Fine Arts, and explore the new Natural History Museum. For military history, walk the grounds of Fort Douglas and its military cemetery. Head up the hill to Red Butte Garden for strolls among thousands of plant and tree species, canyon hikes with views over Salt Lake Valley or concerts at the outdoor venue May through September.
