Salt Lake City

Occupying the arid land of north central Utah, Salt Lake City was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and several other Mormon elders as a place to freely live and worship. Early inhabitants extensively cultivated the valley, resulting in a neatly-organized and green city with the majestic Salt Lake Temple rising above it. Salt Lake City, which is home to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, is also a destination for skiers and snowboarders, with a variety of ski resorts in the surrounding areas. Salt Lake City is also home to a number of venues for professional and amateur theater, and the city also hosts portions of the famous Sundance Film Festival. Salt Lake City is also home to a large Greek population, and celebrates this heritage with the Greek Festival each year.
