Nestled at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains and next to the placid waters of the Great Salt Lake, the eponymous city is a prime destination for travellers interested in outdoor sports.
Salt Lake City hosted the winter Olympics in 2002 and although the athletes have departed, the revitalisation that was completed in preparation for the games is still evident.
Headquarters of the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, many of the city's principal attractions focus on their history, especially the monumental temple itself, where visitors can hear the up-lifting Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
