The friendly city with its spectacular location is named after the Great Salt Lake in the west with its inedible, alkaline waters. However, Salt Lake City does not suffer from a lack of water because the metropolis, which stretches along the snow-capped peaks of the Wasatch Range in the east, gets first-class drinking water from the mountains.
You can use a zip code lookup service to find a zip code you need for Salt Lake City, Utah, the United States, or any country of the world. Since 1847 SLC is firmly in the hands of the Mormons. Historic Temple Square is the center of the city. It is also home to the world headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with the world’s largest genealogical library in the Family History Library. Here are Mormon family trees that date back to the 16th century. Well-known far beyond the state’s borders is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, which holds its samples in the 1867 rectangular Mormon Tabernacle Auditorium.
Worth seeing is Beehive House, the building inhabited by Mormon leader Brigham Young in 1850. In front of the entrance there is the 23 m high “Eagle Gate”, which reaches across the street and has a span of 1.8 tons and a span of six meters. Just north of Temple Square is the Utah State Capitol, with its dome similar to the one in Washington DC. One of SLC’s top museums is the Dinosaur Natural History Museum (301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, UT 84108).
The “This is the Place Heritage Park” gives the visitor an impression of life in the pioneering days of the state. Here you can visit historic sites, ride a train and saddle a horse for a Western Trail Ride. The gold panning and digging for gems can be tried out in the interactive Treasure House exhibition.
Salt Lake City has a vibrant gastro and nightlife scene where modern American cuisine and cocktails are the perfect way to end an outdoor day. Wine enthusiast magazine named the city one of America’s 5 New Foodie Cities. SLC is also known for its breweries Squatters, Uinta and Red Rock, as well as distilleries Sugar House and Beehive. A visit to trendy neighborhoods such as Whiskey Street, Copper Common and Under Current is also worthwhile, as is the visit to the “Bar-X and Beer Bar” by US comedy star Ty Burrell.
