this is a nice high end shopping center. They have it all there. Next to the temple as well so for day time or evening time shopping it is well done for the Christmas season. The walk thru this mall was nice for being in Salt Lake City for a few days. Parties will enjoy the atmosphere here.

I love hiking this canyon, right outside a neighborhood, it is so beautiful all times of the year. The terrain changes, it is quiet, and a great place to walk, exercise and enjoy nature

If you are new to the area and live downtown, this is a good nearby place for a bike ride, or relatively flat stroll. But the canyon is NOT scenic. Visit Millcreek if you walk dogs or want a flat stroll (Pipeline) and good scenery; Big and Little Cottonwood for Scenery.

We all enjoyed walking through this canyon. It was right in the heart of the city, but it felt rural. Plan to spend a couple of hours.

I was finally able to visit the City Creek to find out that tearing down the old mall had been worth it. The layout is spacious and interesting. Lots of nice shops.

Go to City Creek Canyon right at the fall color change. A walk through Memory Grove will leave an indelible impression, like so many melting crayons. Strange analogy, I know.. :) The creek, bridges, monuments, trees, all beautiful.

Reviewers seem to be clumping these into one--but they are two very different experiences. City Creek Canyon is a pleasant place to hike which starts from downtown. Great for running or just getting some time away from traffic. City Creek Mall, on the other hand, is a beautiful new shopping center in the heart of downtown. I'm not much of... More

Spent an afternoon here while in Salt Lake City. Some major retailers with some good sales! Macy's, Express, to name a couple. Also, some places to sit and order a drink and a meal. It's also a good place to visit if you just want to relax and people-watch!
