“Like a non-movie visit to the ancient Roman Collusem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Like a visit to the Roman Collusem, without the hand-to-had fighting and bloody killings. (Oh, maybe not. I think they may play hockey there too!) And depending upon when you visit you can see almost any sport event, plays that rival Broadway, circuses, company rallies, etc. And just as in ancient Rome you share this all with thousands of other screaming, cheering spectators just as the Romans did.

“Bad info on beaches”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

We came into Salt lake City from the north, spent the night and planned to head out west.
We stopped in the Visitors Bureau to get info on the best beach, so the kids could experience swimming in the salt lake.
Although I told the rep we were headed west, he said the beach at Saltair was very rough with stones and not kept up well.
He suggested we head back up north about 15 miles to Antelope Island, a State Park.
He didn't tell us it was about 15 miles up, and another 10 miles across a causeway.
When we arrived, we had to pay the park fee.
We found the beach deserted, and soon discovered why. The lake level was so low, the water was about a city block away from the nice sand pictured on the brochure, and the ground between the sand and water was covered with stones and other debris. The ground under the water was also very rough for walking, and the water was only knee high until you got way out and could actually swim.
Although the kids did get to swim in the salt lake, we traveled about 50 miles out of our way and paid an admission fee for a lousy experience.

“Great Convention Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

The staff was amazingly helpful and the facilities were clean. The needs of our group were met, and we were able to experience the amazing city as we walked the peaceful streets from our nearby hotel to the Convention Center.

“Don't buy the ConnectPass ski pass in Salt Lake CIty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2010

You may see the ConnectPass or SuperPass advertised in SLC, or in our case, it was recommended by our hotel. I recommend against buying it; it will only save you a couple of bucks on lift tickets in the best-case scenario. In the worst-case scenario, which happened to me, you will drop the pass out of your pocket while skiing the first day, in which case they will refuse to issue you a replacement card for your unused days or a refund, and they will keep your money.
