Brittany Fenton with Salt Sky Blog stopped by to share 5 cities you should visit.

Sugar House: (Ok not technically a city so I guess we're saying SLC but talking about Sugar House.)

  • NEW! Tons of new businesses, places to eat & constructions but still keeping with the charm that Sugar House has always had.
  • Great date night, restaurants, walk to everything. Shops, dessert, park.
  • Great family activity. Visit hidden hollow trail, connects sugar house park to the shops across the street with nature walk in between.

Vernal:

  • Known as the city of flowers as thousands of flowers line main street as you enter Vernal.
  • Just named top 20 places to visit in the country.
  • Dinosaur national park is a quarry with dinosaur bones and dig sites, new museum as well.
  • New and great mountain biking trails (McCoy flats and Flume trail.)
  • This place is packed with biking, hiking, camping, and fishing and water sports at surrounding lakes (flaming gorge.)
