Salt Lake City

Location: Utah
Features: city, saltlake

Salt Lake City is the only major city of the area. It doesn't offer any real attractions, but the Mormon Temple is probably worth a visit. Also, the campground at Utah Lake, a bit south of the city is a nice place too.
Other than that, the major attraction is probably the Great Salt Lake. The water of the lake contains such a high amount of salt, the you can float on the water surface without moving your legs or arms. Especially in summer, the water doesn't really look very fresh and close to the beach there are lots of fruitflies on the surface, but once you have that behind you, it's a fun experience to hover in the water...
