Easy drive from SLC to the flats. Be prepared with food, water and sun block.... There is not much on the way there or once you arrive. We're able to watch time trials and someone flying a drone to film the cars. Truly an experience.

On a National Park tour I decided not to see Salt Lake City but the salt flats. I got lucky as there were high speed motorcycle races the week I went. There was a lake to go thru to get to the flats but I had a blast. Looks like snow, the salt was wet and cold. Surprised me. Might... More

It's worth stopping just to take in the amazing White scenery! We didn't go out to the "measured mile", just stopped at the rest area, read the sign with a little history and then walked out onto the salt bed and took some cool pics! It really is worth stopping, take a few minutes to stretch you legs after traveling... More

We travelled from Salt Lake City and while it was a long and boring journey to get there (approx 200 mile round trip), we felt it was worth it as it was a slice of history we were experiencing. Plus we stopped at Salt Lake State Park on the way back. You are able to fuel up when you get... More

Honestly it's flat out boring. If you're passing through, then maybe, go check it out. If not, don't waste your time driving hours to see it. I witnessed 3 cars getting stuck in the slush flats. It'll cost you $$$$$ to get pulled out. Save your time and gas money. Tip: If you're an entrepreneur, open up a tow truck... More

My husband has been racing at the World of Speed at the Salt Flats for four years. I never cease to be amazed at the beauty. We travel all over the world and yet we have some of the most spectacular landscape two hours from home. People come from all over the world to race and the flats. (that said... More

An incredible view and place to go! Warning do not try to drive on the flats unless it is really dry... We nearly got stuck, luckily it's now just a funny memory!

We had family that entered motorcycle week at the Salt Flats. We went as pit crew to assist them with their trip. After hearing about the salt flats all of my life, it was surreal to be there in person. It isn't set up as a large spectator event, but to be able to go and experience it was amazing.

Great. We got there on a sundayafternoon. Races just ended, but there were still lots of cars to check out. Check the local newspaper and the website for events.
