10 Fun, Free Things To Do in Salt Lake City, UT
Hi C.R.A.F.T.y readers! I’m Jen from Tatertots and Jello and I am so excited to be here sharing my 10 favorite places to visit here in Salt Lake City, UT. We have lived in Salt Lake for the past 9 years and we love exploring all of the awesome activities in our town!! Here are a few cheap and fun places to visit while you are in town.
1. Thanksgiving Point
2. Hogle Zoo
One of my kids’ favorite places in the world. this zoo is one of the best we have seen. And since we’ve been here they have made some big upgrades with a Wildcat exhibit and a very nice Elephant habitat. It is also open year round. And in the winter they have something called “Zoo Lights” with thousands of lights through the zoo grounds. You can get discount coupons and they also have free admissions days — last year they were the first Wednesday of November, December, January and February. And they are offering servicemen and their families free admission this coming Saturday, Saturday, May 21, 2011.
This is just one of the many ski resorts within minutes of downtown Salt Lake. Snowbird is located up Little Cottonwood Canyon (right near my house). Of course they boast some of the best snow skiing in the world, but they are also open year round. And you can ride the trams up to the top of the mountain and mountain bike or hike down. And for a small fee, you can ride the Alpine Slide – so much fun!
7. The Gateway
Thank you, Jen! I had no idea there was a ski resort open all year long! I love mountain biking. Hopefully, one day soon I can make a trip to Salt Lake City!
