Top Answers To Salt Lake City Travel Questions
My best advice would be to just enjoy strolling around the downtown area and taking in SLC's perfect outdoor setting at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains. Obviously, a one-year-old sets the pace really, so don't try overdo the sightseeing and just enjoy being together. Check out this link for a few ideas of what to see and do in SLC with families: http://vacation.away.com/utah/travel-v2-cid2384-salt-lake-city-cid350262-family-vacations.html
Answer this1 AnswerFrom the UK, right? Unfortunately, there are no non-stop flights out of the UK to SLC, so you'd need to transfer somewhere like New York, Chicago, or Atlanta (about 8-10 hours from London). From there, it'll be another 4 hours on a domestic flight to SLC. If you can get to Paris, Delta offers a direct flight from there to SLC.
Getting outdoors with a three-year-old is always a good idea, and SLC certainly offers plenty of fresh-air choices, not least of which is the winter- and spring/summer-programs at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort (less than 30 miles from SLC; http://away.com/family-resorts/snowbird-utah.html). Nearer (or if your young-un's not quite ready for the skis), you could try Hogle Zoo (http://vacation.away.com/attractions/travel-ad-cid2384-salt-lake-city-attid147718-utah&-39-s-hogle-zoo-attraction.html), the hands-on exhibits at Discovery Gateway (formerly the Children's Museum of Utah; http://vacation.away.com/attractions/travel-ad-cid2384-salt-lake-city-attid147717-the-children%27s-museum-of-utah.html), or the Living Planet Aquarium (http://www.thelivingplanet.com/). If you're there in summer, you might also consider the Lagoon Amusement Park (http://www.lagoonpark.com).
