Each tour in the stylish, portable format touches on history, culture, and local architecture, plus insider recommendations on eateries, galleries, and nightlife.

Walking Salt Lake City is a time-traveling guide to Salt Lake City's past and to its vibrant present. Written by Utah natives, it presents rambles of every kind. The 30+ tours explore the city’s downtown, which is experiencing an invigorating renaissance; Temple Square, world headquarters of the Latter-Day Saints Church; Capitol Hill; character-filled neighborhoods like the Avenues and 15th and 15th”; and semi-rural surprises near and within the bustling city, from Memory Grove and City Creek Canyon, a stone’s throw from metropolitan skyscrapers, to tucked-away and nearly forgotten Miller Bird Preserve and the appropriately named Hidden Hollow.
While snow-capped mountains, famous canyon resorts, and the inland sea that gave the city its name invitingly beckon hikers, skiers, snowboarders, climbers, and day-trippers, Walking Salt Lake City unveils tempting reasons to enjoy the urban setting itself. Thoughtfully designed, the guide offers precise directions, easy to follow summaries, and tips about inviting eateries and shopping havens. Whether you are out for a heart-pumping workout or an evening stroll, filling an hour or a day, or count yourself a Utah visitor, a new resident or a lifelong local, this book is designed with you in mind.
