From the stunning backdrop of snow-capped mountains to its bustling downtown streets, Salt Lake City offers a unique blend of outdoor adventure and urban charm. Its one of the reasons we chose SLC, Utah for GCUC this year. Outside of our conference, we hope you find time to explore the city. 

Here are a few juicy ideas… 

One of the best parts about visiting a city is discovering the food scene. Whether you’re craving comfort food classics or eager to explore new culinary frontiers, Salt Lake City offers something to tempt every taste bud. For a bite to eat, Bambara, Matteo Ristorante, Prohibition offer dining experiences that showcase the city’s culinary talent.

If you’re interested in local favorites, the famous fry sauce and funeral potatoes of Salt Lake City are served city-wide. 

Salt Lake City offers outdoor enthusiasts a playground of unparalleled beauty and adventure. If this screams your name, the mountains surrounding Salt Lake City are a network of hiking and mountain biking trails, catering to all skill levels. For views, check out Living Room Lookout Trail. For something quick and easy, Donut Falls Trail is perfect. If you want a challenge, Twin Lakes Trail can give you just that. 

For a day full of exploring, Great Salt Lake provides visitors with a range of activities from kayaking and mountain biking to sunbathing. 

If learning about coworking for a few days wasn’t enough, check out the Salt Lake City Natural History Museum to learn more about the region’s parks, mountain ranges, and lakes. In the heart of the city center, the Utah State Capitol is free and offers tours for those history, politics, and architecture buffs. 

During your time in Salt Lake City, if supporting local initiatives, organizing events, or providing essential services interests you, check out these volunteer opportunities!
