My husband and I are trying to do a better job of exploring the United States. We’ve traveled out of the country, and we still intend to take some larger trips as well. However, we realized that there is a lot we haven’t seen here at home, and we want to try and rectify that. We’re attempting to make a decision on our summer trip, and I’m lobbying hard for Salt Lake City. Here’s why:
1. The Twilight Concert Series
My husband loves music, and each summer, Salt Lake City has a FREE event that draws in more than 10,000 spectators. It’s gone on for almost three decades, and some of the headliners have included Bon Iver, Sonic Youth, and the Decemberists.
2. Family Friendly Attractions
With two young children, we have to pick vacation destinations that offer our kids a little something to do as well. Salt Lake City has the Hogle Zoo as well as a number of different amusement parks. There’s also the Children’s Museum of Utah and Thanksgiving Pointe.
3. The Olympic Park
Salt Lake City was home to the Olympics in 2012, and visitors can check out the site and have a little fun at the same time.
I’m excited about our upcoming trip and hope my husband sees how great Salt Lake City would be!
