Episode 20: Alternative Destinations: Salt Lake City, Utah

This episode continues our alternative destinations series, where we profile lesser known places to consider for your next trip (when it’s safe to do so, of course). Today’s alternative travel destination is Salt Lake City, Utah! 

When most people visit Utah, they stay in southern Utah where all the national parks are, never coming up north to Salt Lake City. We think that’s a real shame, because SLC is such a cool place. In this episode, we’ll share Salt Lake’s interesting history, cool things to do, outdoor adventures to be had, what we love about the city, and more.
