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.

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!

This shopping area has lots of stores and resting areas. A stream floes through the middle with shopping on either side. Fountains, sculptures and wild grasses add to the sound of a babbling brook culminating in a water fall at the end of the outdoor area.

A very peaceful and scenic park on the northeast edge of downtown. There are trails, waterfalls, scenic mountain views, and some beautiful upscale neighborhoods to stroll through. The park is accessible either by climbing the hill to the State Capitol and then descending down a trail on the east side (right side as you face the front of the Capitol... More

This is a great place to get away for a few hours, clear your head and enjoy nature. Yest, you are steps away from downtown. SO convenient and therapeutic.
