Synopses & Reviews
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.
