Historically a largely Mormon community, Salt Lake City today is more diverse and is a major banking and tourist center for the country. Nicknamed the “Crossroads of the West,” Salt Lake City is also a trade and transportation hub with a strong business presence. In the heart of Utah between the mountains and the Great Salt Lake, the city is home to numerous outdoor enthusiasts, especially skiers. With several colleges and universities in the area, such as the University of Utah and the Art Institute of Salt Lake City, there is also a strong academic culture.
Getting around the city is a synch with the Utah Transit Authority’s integrated bus, rail, and light rail services. Plus, you can travel domestically or abroad with ease from the Salt Lake City International Airport.
