Salt Lake City will return for a sixth year as the host city for the Tour of Utah. Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker has declared 2013 as “Year of the Bike” and hosting a stage in the Tour is one of many planned events. Expanding and improving the “bikeability” of Salt Lake City is just one of the major aspects of Mayor Becker’s Livability Agenda, a plan aimed at keeping Salt Lake City one of the best places to live, eat, work, play and do business. Last year Salt Lake City hosted two stage finish lines.
Combining the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the friendliness of a small, western city, Salt Lake City is an ideal location for travel. A beautiful, safe, and vibrant city, Salt Lake combines unparalleled access to natural recreation, a bustling economy, dynamic nightlife, remarkable history, warm hospitality, and Utah's Greatest Snow on Earth.™
From the heart of the city to the edge of the wilderness, Salt Lake has a host of options for you to set up a perfect base camp for your visit to Salt Lake. Nestled at the base of the Wasatch Range, you are minutes from the best skiing in North America. At the heart of downtown you can browse museums and galleries, sample endless dining and shopping options, check out an NBA game, attend a Broadway musical, visit the zoo and catch a symphony or planetarium cosmic light show. Enjoy it all at the ”Crossroads of the West.”
