Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A new title in the Walking series, Walking: Salt Lake City is geared to first-time visitors to Salt Lake City—and to local residents. Both will enjoy the history and tales about places they thought they knew, and will be surprised to find walking destinations they may not have considered before.

Each tour in the stylish, portable format touches on history, culture, and local architecture, plus insider recommendations on eateries, galleries, and nightlife. With clear maps depicting each walk, parking and public transit info, at-a-glance summaries and Points of Interest appendices, there's no better way to discover a city than on foot with a Walking guide.

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 citys downtown, which is experiencing an invigorating renaissance. 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.

About the Author

Coauthors Lynn Arave and Ray Boren are Utah natives steeped in the history, culture, and panorama of Salt Lake City, and both have enjoyed longtime careers writing and photographing for area media. The men forged a solid professional relationship during decades of working together at Salt Lake City's premier newspaper, the Desert News.

A "go-to" writer and editor at that newspaper for 31 years, Lynn Arave retired in December 2010 and now devotes his time to writing about the area he knows and loves so well.

During his 35 years at the newspaper, avid photographer and writer Ray Boren won local, regional, and national recognition for his work.
