Awesome.

Bring your sun glasses. Nice natural wonder. Not a lot to it but still a must see. Restrooms at rest area and a foot wash. We went barefoot because the salt cakes up on you shoes.

We had traveled a long distance from Moab, Utah to visit the salt flats. We were not aware that the salt flats become totally dry only by August. So what we found was part slush and part water. Of course , we were disappointed. The trip became an adventure when the driver of one of the cars wanted to enter... More

I've been here 8 times with a friend and if you like hot rod cars this is the place to be. The best time to visit is the first weekend of the week as there are more cars both race and street rods attending that will be parked along the course during the day and in front of one of... More

It's out there. Way out there. And there's nothing else really there. Back at the highway there's gas and a diner. But out at the flats there's nothing. Well, except for salt... and wind. You'll see a lot of places where people went where they shouldn't and boy do they get stuck. I'd imagine a tow out there is pretty... More

I wouldn't go out of my way to see this, but since we were roadtripping from CO to NorCal, it was on the way and well worth the stop. Cool to see. Check, been there done that. Kiddos would think it was pretty cool too.

We drove on salt flat and it was amazing.There is no speed limit but regular driver hardly go beyond 80 because you feel the salt flat. Make sure after driving on... More

What fun! It's just such a cool thing visiting a famous place, even when nothing is going on. We did see some vehicles that may have been stuck, so be careful if you try driving on the salt. We still have salt in our car!

Great to get out to the Salt Flats! About an hour and half (depending on your driving speed) easy drive from Salt Lake City, the Salt Flats are pretty amazing not just to see, but to get out and walk on. Yes, you take your shoes and socks off and actually walk out on land surface thats completely salt...! Its... More

If you get the chance and are driving through on I-80, stop here. It's unlike anything I've seen before... Miles and miles of salt. You can take some really cool pictures out there! Have one person stand 20 feet behind the other, and the front person will look like a giant compared to the other! We went through in July,... More
