The Secret’s Getting Out: Salt Lake’s the Place!

Published: 01/05/2015
Utah Business Magazine -- The national media is picking up on Salt Lake’s transformation into a world-class tourism destination featuring incredible food, endless shopping, unique activities  and exciting adventures. 
The latest article singing the praises of Utah’s capital city is featured in Sherman’s Travel, where Salt Lake is named one of “5 Up-and-Coming U.S. Tourism Cities.” The publication cites its access to the area’s world-class skiing as well as cultural arts and sophisticated dining options.
This article follows other nationally acclaimed publications offering a glimpse of the exciting happenings in Salt Lake’s restaurants, nightspots and neighborhoods. Wine Enthusiast’s article on “America’s 5 New Foodie Cities,” simply states that “Salt Lake City’s under-the-radar restaurants won’t stay there for long.”
Fodor’s Travel says Salt Lake City “is blossoming with new bars and edgy eateries that are pushing the envelope. From a celebrity-owned beer-and-brat bar to an urban wine-tasting room, SLC is becoming an unlikely destination for food and drinks lovers.”  
The Wire, on the other hand, rhetorically asks, “This Is the Chillest City in America?” ranking Salt Lake the least stressed city in which to live.
And then, of course, there’s Ty Burrell’s “A Love Letter To Salt Lake City,” on, where he confesses to having fallen head over heels for the city over the past 10 years, finally moving here part time and, with some partners, opened a couple of the city’s more popular bars, Bar X and Beer Bar.
