1 Reviews & Comments About Salt Lake City


09/06/2018

Salt Lake City, Utah is one of the most beautiful, well planned cities I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. I spent my Christmas holiday there a few years ago and was blown away by its cleanliness. I could tell that the founders of the city brought to life what they had envisioned. The streets were practically spotless and the people were incredibly nice and honest. I had actually left my expensive digital camera in the restroom on accident and didn't realize it until two kind people started chasing me down to give it to me. I was shocked, because if that had happened in my hometown, the chances of someone returning such an expensive possession would have been pretty slim. I enjoyed the bars and Temple Square, which was breathtaking with all of the Christmas lights. I am not Mormon, but I thought the place looked magical.

Temple Square with all of the beautiful buildings and Christmas lights, the high end retail stores, the bars (especially the Dead Goat Saloon), the nice people and the clean streets. I can't think of anything bad to say.
