My wife and I are looking to take a trip to SLC in August. Does anyone have suggestions for what we can do? We will be in town for 6 nights/5 days. We would like to spend about half the time in town, and the other half outside the city, in the mountains or valley. Any great little restaurants would be good as well, no chains please. We love places that the locals would go, and activities the locals would do.

Red Iguana, one of the best Mexican restaurants in the country; Ichiban for sushi; Bambara for big bucks fine dining.. Walk around Temple Square, beautiful gardens and fountains. visit the copper mine to the west, very interesting display; it can be seen from outer space w/o a telescope, likie the Great Wall of china. Hike in one of the canyons - Millcreek is nice.

Ruth's Diner up Emigration Canyon is a local favorite!

Also up the canyon a little further is the Sun and Moon Cafe. Good food, nice patio.

Salt Lake Pizza and Pasta in Sugar House. Very reasonably priced and the food is much more unique and interesting than the name might suggest. If you want a more pub-like atmosphere, head next door to the Fiddler's Elbow, which is a full out pub that shares a kitchen with the restaurant.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions. Unfortunately it looks like my wife can't get the time off guaranteed, and since refundable tickets are insanely expensive, I think we will have to stick closer to home. Looks like our dream of visiting Utah will have to wait. For the future, what is earliest and latest month that you can ski?

Most resorts open right around Thanksgiving, although a lot of them have to manufacture their own snow that early in the season. Skiing always runs through the end of April and often into mid- or late-May.

Today was the last day for Snowbird but it's unusually late.

As a former FL resident myself, you have to come, just to see the mountains. Since the highest elevations in FL are pretty much the landfills in south Florida, the mountains here are truly a treat to see.

Best of luck on the future trip.
