    Headed to SLC in May...

    Trying to figure out what to do and more... what to see... I'm the typically the outdoorsy type but certainly don't mind doing the gay thing either...

    Any advice??

    Check out: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g60922-Activities-Salt_Lake_City_Utah.html

    If you like being outdoors, I recommend Park City, UT as well. Just a short drive away.

    Go someplace else. Seriously, other than outdoor activities nearby, there's no reason to go to SLC.

    I did a stop in SLC while on a road trip. It was a pretty sleepy place.

    Even for an atheist like me, the LDS temple and gardens are impressive, if you like that sort of thing.

    The scenery of the Wasatch Range is very imposing.

    That's about it.

    If you want to see some nice homes, there's the avenues. Maybe see the university and Capitol? The union station mall is cool, if only from a design standpoint. And the new natural history museum, not much else I can think of though.

    Why do I always find Canadians, especially from Toronto, very hot? icon_redface.gif

    Definitely DO NOT do what Calibro recommended...

    By May, spring here is usually in full-swing and many of the trails that have been snow-covered all winter are usually free of snow pack which affords great hiking while the temperature remains mild so you don't sweat your ass off like in July or August.

    I also recommend Park City. Depending upon how the next couple months of winter play out, there still may be enough good snow for you to try and ski or snowboard on, if you like, but it would have to be the higher resorts like Park City, Brighton, or Alta.

    Club Sound in downtown Salt Lake is a fantastic gay dance club that hosts Hydrate every Friday night. I've been quite often and have always had an excellent time.

    The site seeing is wonderful around here as the nature is amazing, especially if you head south into the mountains and deserts of central and southern Utah. Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Arches, and Zion are all absolutely beautiful national parks that offer awesome hiking as well.
