Things to do:

There are tons of things to do in Salt Lake but here are a few things we’ve thought of:

Skiing/Snowboarding – Click here to be directed to the Utah.com ski page with information on all of the ski resorts and the snow reports.  Also keep in mind if you do decide to go that Ski-N-See in Salt Lake located at 102 West 600 South sells discounted ski tickets for not only Salt Lake ski resorts but Park City resorts as well.  You can click here to be directed to a list of the prices offered with their discounts or call them at 801-333-7767.

Shopping/Eating at City Creek Center – In the heart of Salt Lake City, City Creek Center is the retail centerpiece of one of the nation’s largest mixed-use downtown redevelopment projects. This unique shopping environment features over 110 stores and restaurants, a retractable glass roof, a creek that runs through the property, a pedestrian skybridge and more.  http://www.shopcitycreekcenter.com.

University of Utah – The University of Utah is right next to the rink and often times has events going on.

Salt Lake Sports Complex – The Salt Lake rink is inside the Salt Lake City Sports Complex which also has a workout facility and swimming pools if you have extra time and would like.

Temple Square – Temple Square (the headquarters of the Mormon Church) is the most popular tourist attraction in Salt Lake City and December is a very fun time to visit.  They have a big nice garden area (like 2 city blocks) to walk through and see tons of Christmas lights.  You can click here to be directed to the webpage if you want to see a map or get any additional information on the hours for the Christmas lights or garden grounds, everyone is welcome to come visit.
