My husband has a two-week training in the Salt Lake City vicinity the first two weeks of August. We have decided to make a mini-vacation of it as we spent a few days in the area last summer and couldn't get enough!
We have a two-year-old who is a great little traveler - he can get antsy after a couple hours in the car, but overall he's pretty easy going when traveling. We have done everything with him from beaches, zoos, museums, aquariums, parks, fishing, easier hiking (backpack or stroller), etc. He likes it all unless he has to go in water :) no pools or splash pads!
We will have early evenings for two weeks (M-Thu after 3:30-4ish) and one weekend (Fri late afternoon-Sunday evening) to do some sightseeing. We will have a rental car.
Last year we saw Park City, hiked Bridal Veils Falls, drove I-80 to Rock Springs, WY to visit family, fished Flaming Gorge, drove through some of Wasatch National Forest, fished Strawberry Reservoir, and visited Antelope Island, played in the Great Salt Lake a bit.
I am looking for recommendations! Do you have suggestions for:
1. Daytime activities (just me and the boy!),
2. Evening activities
3. The weekend - one of the National Parks? We're open to anything. I just don't know where to start because there is so much to see and last year every time I turned around there was another stunning view and incredible beauty of your state!
On a totally separate note if you have a grocery store recommendation that has a good selection of gluten free items I'd appreciate that too (our little traveler is allergic to dairy, soy and gluten! Poor kid!).
Thank you in advance! We can't wait to get back in a few short weeks!
