Best of Salt Lake City

• 20 August 2012


A visit to Salt Lake City this summer reminded me of all the things I loved about living there.  While I never quite felt settled in the Beehive State, there were (and still are) some wonderful places that I really look forward to visiting on our annual trip.  In fact, this summer we enjoyed ourselves so much that we extended our vacation.  Apparently after 9 months of pretty crummy weather in the NW, the 100 degree heat and clear blue skies looked pretty darn good :)

My original "Best of Salt Lake City" post was published about 18 months ago, but it's still a keeper in my book.  I'd recommend it to anyone living in, or about to move to Salt Lake.  It's always helpful to have a short list of places to hit when you're itching to explore.  But first, I need to share 3 updates to this tried and true list:

1. City Greek Express is no longer :(

2. Salt Lake's Downtown Farmer's Market -  I'm not sure why I didn't include this outstanding market on my original list--what a mistake that was!  If you live in Utah, make a trip to Pioneer Park downtown and allow yourselves a couple of hours to enjoy the hustle and bustle.  Prices are very reasonable (especially for a farmer's market, which isn't always the cheapest place to shop) and the variety is exceptional.  I particularly love the homemade lemonade on the NE corner (surprise!), the pesto stand on the eastern side and the cherries from Woodyat Farm in the NW corner.  They are the best for homemade pies.

3. Eva - My new favorite place to dine is Eva's on Main Street.  Rachel picked it out last year as our dinner destination one evening and I've been back twice since.  Lots of fresh fare and a cool outdoor dining nook in back (a must!).

More Salt Lake favorites on the "Best of Salt Lake City" post.  If you feel I've missed any, please tell me in the comments.  Enjoy!
