Nice outdoor center with more than just shopping.

We visited the Gateway on a Sunday in SLC, as not many other things were open. Our first impression was it looked like a great outdoor shopping venue, but after walking a while with three young children we started to feel very uneasy. We were tailed several times into stores by men who seemed to be watching our daughters. Not... More

The place is overrun with homeless people which is quite disconcerting if shopping but what was really really unacceptable was in the major book store our granddaughters were targeted by a vagrant who was hiding behind bookshelves and clearly up to no good. The staff were aware of this man and were doing nothing. We left but if we hadn't... More

More chain stores but without the maintenance and polish of City Creek. There is some potential here but it seems they just don't have the right mix and energy. Walk through it once and find something else to do. The most interesting thing was the $1 taco cart on the sidewalk... seriously... the only thing with any character or local... More

The Gateway, in the heart of Salt Lake City, is a great place to take your family. Whether you are shopping, seeing a movie, looking for food, or visiting the Planetarium, The Gateway has it all. Don't miss the huge fountain at the North end, as it is a fun place for anyone looking to get wet in the heat... More

Gateway is a very nice, outdoor shopping center with many great stores and restaurants. But it also has a children's museum, movie theater, and a space museum. There seemed to be a lack of restrooms. The food court had plenty. But it took a while to find it. Parking was very convenient.

This shopping mall seems deserted and neglected. There are no nice restaurants and coffee shops. It has obviously lost a lot of business to the newer and much nicer shopping centre downtown (City Creek).

Stopped by the Gateway to kill time before our flight home. This outdoor mall has modern architecture and lots to do. There had been a sidewalk chalk event the day before and the artwork was amazing. They have the coolest candy store ever, RocketFizz. Unfortunately there were quite a few empty stores fronts, but there was still plenty to shop.... More

I am sad! I used to love the Gateway and it was a wonderful place for the whole family. The brand stores, shady places to sit, food court and a was nice. Don't forget the movie theater. Now it is run down and plenty of homeless people stroll it all day long! Junkies and dealers as well. The good stores... More

Good place for a walk, but the shopping is less than spectacular. There were a ton of empty store fronts, and only a few big name stores.

I used to walk down to The Gateway on Sunday afternoons when I was in Salt Lake City - being it was the only mall open within walking distance. The last time I was there, I was shocked how many stores had left. Several of my favorite stores used to be there but are gone. No need to walk down... More
