Circling back to our home city, Salt Lake City has no shortage of great summertime activities. The capital city of Utah welcomes visitors and surrounding residents from all around the country and the world for its spectacular scenery and beautiful weather. With the nearby airport and road network, Salt Lake and VIP Limousine are ready for your summer adventures in our hometown.

For one, summer is known as concert season, and Salt Lake has no shortage of musical entertainment. The USANA Ampitheatre is hosting Kenny Chesney, Jack Johnson, the Utah Symphony, and Luke Bryan. A few miles further north is the Vivint Smart Home Arena, which is playing host to Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, Drake, Shania Twain, Panic! At the Disco, Sam Smith, The Smashing Pumpkins, Maroon 5, J. Cole, Def Leppard & Journey, and J. Balvin. Along Main Street, Broadway at the Eccles is presenting Phantom of the Opera and Waitress: The Musical by Sara Bareilles.

If music is not your thing, the great outdoors continues to call. Salt Lake may be known as Ski City, but even without snow there’s plenty to do. Solitude, Brighton, Alta, and Snowbird all host, at minimum, hiking and cycling opportunities. Solitude, Alta, and Snowbird all have lift-served hiking, and each website also has a list of other activities such as lift rides and special events.

Outside of the resorts, Salt Lake has a myriad of hiking trails with spectacular views of the valley. Mount Olympus overlooks the city and is one of the taller peaks nearby. Above the University of Utah is the Living Room, and for quick jaunts there’s always Ensign Peak just above The Avenues and downtown.

If you’re in the need for food, Salt Lake also has no shortage of excellent local and national restaurants catering to a variety of tastes and group sizes. We at VIP Limousine have highlighted a few of our favorites here on the blog, including Pallet, Current Fish and Oyster, The New Yorker, Cafe Trio, and Ruth’s Chris Steak House.

Salt Lake City is not just a wintertime locale. Our beautiful home is a four-season inland paradise with lots to do and lots to offer with options for everybody. Let us take you where you want to go!
