|Our guide to Salt Lake City will help you find the best kid friendly parks in Salt Lake City Utah. Sitting at the foot of the rugged Wasatch Mountains and extending to the south shore of the Great Salt Lake, Salt Lake City has some of the best scenery in the country. The interface between city and nature draws residents and visitors alike to the Salt Lake Valley. There are few other places where you can enjoy urban pleasures and, within 20 minutes, hike a mountain trail or rest by a rushing stream. The city is emerging as a prominent economic center in the Rocky Mountains. Since 2001 the number of people living in the Salt Lake Valley has climbed from 720,000 to more than 1 million. As a reflection of this growth, a dynamic skyline has sprouted, along with ever-widening rings of suburbia. Smog occasionally bedevils the town, and some crime exists, but Salt Lake is working hard to remain a small, personable city. Near Salt Lake City, Antelope Island has superb hiking, mountain biking, and wildlife watching. American history buffs might choose to travel one of the best-preserved sections of the original Pony Express Trail, the 133-mi section through the desert of west-central Utah.
