Salt Lake Bicycle Tours
This town has a thriving cyclist scene, full of people who bike commute to work, run errands and even just enjoy getting on their bicycles to feel the wind in their hair. Join in on the fun with this awesome bike tour. You'll hop on a two-wheeler, add a helmet to your head and hit the road. Your guide will take you along some of the city's 53 miles of bike lanes, past farmers markets and booming local business, all with the majestic Wasatch Mountain Range in the distance. The bikes are comfy and come with wide seats, so don't worry if you're not a super great cyclist. Anyone can enjoy this rambling stroll through Salt Lake!
Utah's Hogle Zoo
If you're looking to see lions in Utah, this is the place to go. Hogle Zoo has hundreds of awesome animals and birds that visitors can see in their natural habitats. You can even hop the zoo train between the lion exhibit and the savanna animals. And be sure to take a spin on the Conservation Carousel where 42 hand-carved animals can't wait to take you on a quick ride. For a more personal look at some of the zoo residents, watch a show at Rocky Shores where the sea lions and seals can do tricks and show you their personalities. There are also elephant and bird shows for those interested in learning about pachyderms and their avian friends.
Have you ever wanted to "see what's out there?" That's this facility's motto! Drive your Salt Lake City rental car to Clark Planetarium where you can watch an Imax film about the moon, astronauts and even butterflies. Then head to light show (held Thursday through Saturday) to check out the "Dark Side of the Moon," "Rock on Demand" or even short films about U2 and Led Zeppelin. There are also some free exhibits on site, like one featuring photographs taken from the Hubble or showcasing how telescopes work. Check out the Foucault pendulum too; you won't be able to tell if you're moving or the exhibit is!
