City Life


This clock has been part of Main Street ever since I was a kid. I remember seeing it for the first time when I was about 8 years old and I'm glad to see it's been preserved.  Even though Salt Lake City is quite accessible and is full a fun things to do, and is a great place to visit , it's a place we rarely venture. Carole's Ten on Tuesday was a great reminder of this jewel that runs off our beaten path. When I'm downtown I enjoy it immensely and there are many things I like to do. 

1. I like to go to the "art house" movies playing at the Salt Lake Film Society's theater, the Broadway.

2. I find unique places to eat. 


3. Or I have a drink at Bax X and food at the Beer Bar.

4. Enjoy a walk through the flower gardens of the LDS church.

5. I sometimes visit the mall and, perhaps, do a little shopping, and/or people watch.

6. I love to see live music at one of the many venues. We go to jazz concerts at the Capital Theater and I'm looking forward to the new season.


7. I love looking for funky art pieces scattered around the streets of the city.


8. And, being amazed at the new buildings, the TALL new buildings under construction.

9. I'll go downtown just to buy postcards a the grocery store, one of the best places I've found for procurement of postcards.

10. And, I always like coming home to the "burbs".


Salt Lake City is a really eclectic city to visit and I've enjoyed it every time I've gone with you!

Thanks for showing off your city. Other than the airport, I've never been there.

SLC looks like an engaging place to visit. I love all the eye candy that seems to be available. I live in the city where I live, but I don't get to downtown very often. Isn't it odd how we often fail to appreciate the wonders in our own neighborhoods?

My only trip to Salt Lake was years ago. Hubby and I attended an AIA convention and we stayed at the Hotel Utah. Our room was right across from Temple Square and it was fun to look at all the brides (and grooms, of course). Great memory, especially since the hotel has since even converted to other uses?

What a great post--the variety of things to do is amazing.

I love the martian. I recently saw that there's an astronaut over by Abravanel Hall.

A big city/downtown offers so much more than a small town. I wish we were a little closer to a big city... better yet, I'd love to try big city living one day (even if for just a short time).

My parents have a very similar clock (of course theirs is only about 12" tall!)... I've only been to the airport in SLC - definitely a place I'd like to visit for a bit longer. in the summertime!

Funky art and postcards are some of my favorite things!
