We spent a couple of hours here as it's a definite must see when visiting Salt Lake City. Yes, it does smell a bit but it's still an interesting view and it was fascinating to watch the gulls running with their beaks wide open into...More

We'd already visited the Dead Sea in Israel - the saltiest lake on earth. We wanted to compare the Great Salt Lake, so made it a point to check it out while in Salt Lake City. You can access the lake from many points on...More
