While walking along Salt Lake’s Bonneville Shoreline trail overlooking our little urban gem nestled in the mountains, you might hear some familiar tunes. Yup—the hills are alive with the sound of the Red Butte Garden Concert Series. In an incomparable setting, the Red Butte Concert Series is one of our summer must-do’s. Between top-name acts like Indigo Girls, Stray Cats, The Beach Boys and more, and the insanely beautiful backdrop of Salt Lake’s Wasatch Range, Red Butte’s Concert Series offers up aural pleasure with a heaping dose of nature. Add the fact that you can bring in your own cooler (yes, that means your favorite red, bubbly, or oat soda, and food) and this concert series is hard to beat as a way to round out a day of sightseeing nearby at the Hogle Zoo, This is the Place Heritage Park, the Natural History Museum, or the Gardens themselves — all included on the Connect Attractions Pass.
